Writing to Explore

Discovering adventure in the research paper, 3-8

Discover a new way to integrate the best of fiction and nonfiction, and motivate students to write with imagination, curiousity, and a hunger to learn -- adventure writing!

This lively book starts with a solid foundation in the basics of good writing: setting, atmosphere, and character development. It goes on to explore the specific elements of "adventure writing": from setting the stage to conducting research; from combining history and geography to effectively utilizing technology. The result is work that is rooted in real places, supported by facts, and developed with details from reality. Handouts, sample activities, student writing samples, research sources, and more complement the book.
