In this lively presentation, I will help spark the imagination and show students how to find ideas. From using family history, personal observations, asking "what if" questions, idea games, and writing prompts, this program offers practical tips for finding and using creative story ideas. Story reading and questions/answer time included. Bring paper and pen/pencil!
