Free Technology for Teachers: Five Tools That Help Students Plan Stories | Creative Writing | Scoop.it

As a student the importance of planning a story before writing it was driven into my head. Then when I became a teacher, I drove that same message home to my students. Here are five free tools that students can use to plan and outline their stories.

Since there is a "student" in each of us, I find this post even relevant to re-learners.

Often we gloss over a picture as a last thought to a post, or we load one up to do some hard selling.

 

If we are imaginative, we write a thought provoking line or make some funny remark and then let the picture sit like some ornament on our web page.

 

This post illustrates some good points as to why that is a big missed opportunity to tell your story. After all, what's a story without pictures? and the more compelling your pictures, the most engrossed the readers will be.

 

Take them on a journey, their journey with you as a guide; and like the pied piper, you will gain many followers.
