Scenarios matter in getting students to create, and one of my favorites is to put the student at an event. By doing so, students can imagine they are Joe Schmo, and they can retell the story of what they see. Making them go the first person will give them a deeper understanding of that event, and the best part is that you can make those events up. They can be abstract.
You would think that scenarios would have to be actual events, but they don’t. Obviously, you could do this with literature events. If the author paints a picture, it should be easy to be imaginative off of it. You could also be even more abstract. You could put students inside an animal cell, they could be present in an abstract concept, or it could be an original scenario concept. It’s up to you! The possibilities are endless.
