Christmas Creative Writing/History Unit

29 Oct

Ouch! We haven’t even had Halloween yet, though it is Monday, and I am actually going to post something for Christmas. I hate it when stores put out the Christmas stuff in October. I am posting this because it is only free until November 3, 2011. So grab it quickly!

Here is what the site says about this 48 page unit:

In this course, the student first learns the history of Christmas. Then as with all our History/Creative Writing elective courses, the student is led through the steps to write two original holiday short stories. The student learns about some of the most important elements of writing, including plotting, characterization, and conflict, as he develops his own short stories step by step. 18 complete lesson plans!

Also included is a recommended list of Christmas books and movies…and an original short story by the author of the course, an Emmy-award winning writer.  For students ages 8-adult.
