Character Writing

Students are creating a character to use in their writing. The idea developed after watching singer Taylor Swift, a live classroom webcast. She shared how she wrote stories about her friends. She expressed, "When I was 12 or 13, my family spent the summer like at the shore. And I missed my friends back home so much. That, I would spend all my days locked in the den at ah computer just writing a novel. I did add all my friends from school in my novel so I didn’t miss them as much. It ended up being like 400 pages long.” 
My students were excited about using their friends in a story.
She also talked about the Genre she read as a kid.  She shared when reading adventures, “It’s fun to escape from where you are in your life and jump into someone else’s.”
