This is key to work with narratives to develop our students’ imaginations. With this activity, Antonio helps his students to pump their creativity through writing. We only need to write down a handful of words in small pieces of paper. One of our students picks 4, and we build a phrase with them. For example, with “city”, “country”, “character”, and “peace”.
“My cousin used to live in the city and then moved to the country, since then his character has changed and now he lives in peace”.
Easy, right? Starting from here, we start suggesting more questions that help us develop these concepts: “What is the city like?”, “How was his character before?” We write a paragraph with the phrase and the answers we have found. Then we repeat the process, and ask new questions about the new concepts that start to emerge. The story can go on as far as our imagination allows us!
