Learning from authors

BOPDs wrote their thoughts on meeting Alex London and later shared it with each other. During
writing workshop, we decided as a class to choose one take away from Alex London that we wanted to try for ourselves. This was his statement that 'every story has a setting'. We connected this to the vacation stories that we were writing. When we returned from our breaks, many of us had much to say about the time we spent but someone suggested making it into a guessing game. We used the elements of a narrative to guide our writing. We agreed that we could use fictional names for our characters so as not to reveal whose story is being told. This guessing game idea had us excited and since it was about vacations, settings played an important role. BOPDs described the venues of their vacations. At the end of the workshop, we shared an adjective that we used to describe the setting of our story.
