Focus on student exploration of texts that set patterns for various forms of genre writing, and use those patterns as the basis for their own writing. Reading includes contemporary texts, folktales and myths that establish the archetypal basis for narrative patterns in plot, setting and character development. Also lays the groundwork for students to articulate and work efficiently within their own writing process, and for students to establish effective writing practices for long-term use.
