Snapshots of Learning: Creative Writing Adventures

Often the most difficult aspect of creative writing, for adults and for students, is the character and story ideas. Who–or what–will be my characters? What will happen in my story? Take a peek into Amy Murch’s class to see how she and several other HSE elementary teachers are using Night Zookeeper to foster creative ideas and promote writing fluency this year. Night Zookeeper is an online adventure land for students, built to encourage creative writing and provide a global network for story sharing. The Night Zoo is full of adventures waiting to happen…if only the students will write them!
