Building Fully Formed Characters, Grade 4 – 12: What makes us fall in love with the characters in a story? Students dive deep into their imaginations for ideas. Then learn the building blocks to make their characters jump off the page. This presentation is also a great collaborative writing exercise.

Building an Amazing Setting, Grade 4 – 12: How does setting work in a story? Working with student suggestions we will build an out-of-this-world setting. Students then have an opportunity to create their own settings using the example as a guide. This presentation is also a great collaborative writing exercise.

Combining the Elements of a Story, Grade 4 – 12: This presentation is great for a longer presentation or in combination with the character and/or setting workshops. It also works as a great collaborative writing exercise.

Make Your Stories Come Alive, Grade 7 – 12:
Students learn the key steps to combine character arc and plot points to bring their stories to life.

Creativity and Courage, Grade 4 – 12: We all have creativity and courage, but it’s scary when we show what is inside us to the world. Jeanette inspires students to discover their talents by using a wide range of activities and with examples from her own journey finding creativity. Come prepared to find your inner talents.
