Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a mini lesson on teaching the traits of Voice and Ideas as part of a Six Traits Writing Workshop. The differences between storytelling and story writing are explored. The lesson begins with questions about what makes a good story and the difference between the oral story and the written one. A video of a virtual field trip on storytelling is used to prompt discussion. Venn diagrams are provided to help students compare and contrast the similarities and differences in oral and written story, with a goal of incorporating story telling into written pieces.
