Writing A Story Together

Taking turns writing sentences to create a one-of-a- kind story provides focus and allows your mentee to take the lead.  

Steps
  1. Bring writing paper and two pencils to your next meeting.  
  2. Decide together, with your mentee, how many sentences your story will have.  
  3. Choose a theme or topic for your story.
  4. Take turns writing the sentences, encouraging your mentee to be creative or to write about things from his/her day.  

Writing together will bring you closer to your mentee, giving a window into their world.
