To assist in their creation of original monster stories, students formulate mixed-media artists’ books. These books function as place to house brainstorming, character sketches, story arcs, language, symbols, and pacing. Weekly in-depth class discussions and independent construction assist students as they imagine, create, and fine-tune their stories.
