The poetry section covers many of the same elements as Level 2, but at a faster pace, and through working with a published poem, rather than student-written pieces. Written directly to the student, at the end of each section, challenge exercises provide an opportunity for students to put their newly-learned knowledge into practice.
Encouraging writers to work with a mentor, a section of "mentor materials" at the back of the book provides teaching hints and tips. Teaching the "craft" and "how-tos" of writing while still acknowledging the individual, creative process, The Creative Writer Level 3: Building Your Craft will provide the nitty-gritty instruction to polish student writing. 36 weeks of instruction, divided between fiction and poetry. 292 pages, softcover. Grades 7-9.
