Lesson 6: Chapters 10 & 11 - Creative Writing and Writing a Comic

Using characters, setting, rhetorical questions, and dialogue are taught. These types of creative writing are included: tall tales, fantasy, realistic and historical fiction, science fiction, plays, and poems. Writing devices used are alliteration, assonance, end rhyme, metaphor, onomatopoeia, personification, and simile. It teaches the student to use imagination, originality, and expressiveness. A section on comics is included that outlines each step in the comic process, displays common layouts and provides examples.
