NAIS学生成果 | 真相只有一个?诺美学生创意悬疑写作学术成果





是什么让悬疑读物吸引读者爱不释手?解开迷案的时候需要推理解答每一个谜题吗?最近诺美学校ELA教师团队中的一员Dean 带领Foundation学生们以悬疑文学创作者的角度剖析了悬疑文学,学生以创意写作的形式进行了文学创作。

What makes mysteries appealing to readers? Do you need to solve every puzzle when solving the mystery? Recently Mr Dean, one of our the ELA teachers, led Foundation students to analyze mystery literature using literature circles, and students expored the genre of mystery writing as a form of creative writing.

Course Content: In this project, students work in literature circles to read and analyze mysteries. Through group discussions, students construct a set of shared criteria for a highly effective mystery, and then work alone to write a mystery story based in NAIS that incorporate these elements.

老师教学总结反馈 Teacher's Comments


Students performed very well especially Jocelyn, Karina and Laura achieving over 95%. All students understood what a mystery is and that not all mysteries have to be solved. Students followed a standard pattern of introducing the mystery in the beginning, explaining the process of trying to solve the mystery in the middle and concluding with either solving the mystery or leaving it unsolved and up to the reader to decide. Students who wrote a crime mystery understood about having multiple suspects with different motives and opportunities to keep the reader guessing. Overall a great performance from Foundation.
