The Creative Writer Level 2: Essential Ingredients

Picking up after The Creative Writer: Level 1, this second volume refreshes and builds upon those lessons on plot, character, dialogue, and other storytelling basics. The first 18-weeks focus on fiction and the second 18-weeks on poetry. Fiction units are further divided into literary categories such as plot, character, dialogue, setting, point of view, and scene. The Grimm's fairy tale "The Golden Goose" is chosen as the example for each section, with a different element emphasized in each chapter. Poetry units include subjects, word choice, form and sound, and nonsense. At the end of each section, challenge exercises provide an opportunity for students to put their newly-learned knowledge into practice.

The Creative Writer Level 2: Essential Ingredients by Boris Fishman

A complete creative writing course for 5-8th graders with so much to like! I'll just list below all the great features of this program:

  • The price is amazing! And you get a truly quality course!
  • 36 weeks of lessons. You get 1 lesson per week, so you can break it however you want: do it all in a single day, or break into smaller daily assignments. 
  • Teacher helps are included in the back of the book.
  • The lessons are interesting, incremental, easy to implement, easy to understand.
  • The book is non-consumable, so you can use it with multiple students in your home.

Though The Creative Writer Level 2: Essential Ingredients can stand alone (no prerequisite), it DOES build in the first volume. If your student is a beginner, you may want to start with level one, but if your student has some experience, you can easily jump into level 2. Like the first level, the first 18 weeks of level 2 are a study of fiction writing and include lessons in plot, characterization, dialogue, point of view, and more. The second 18 weeks are a study of writing poetry, and include fun and imaginative lessons.

Overall, this course is fantastic! A great investment!
