THESE NEW PENS are packed with discourse development information using Story Grammar Marker® and ThemeMaker® visuals and methodology.
Each colorful pen contains a retractable, 7" x 2.5", double-sided banner. One side depicts a definition of “narrative,” the SGM® visual of the 7 Stages of Narrative Development, as well as the Story Grammar Marker® tool with each story icon identified. The other side of the banner contains the ThemeMaker® diagrams for the 7 Expository Text Structures of description, list, sequence, compare/contrast, cause/effect, problem/solution, and persuasion/argument, as well as examples of where expository text can be found.
Aside from the obvious use of these pens for writing, the retractable banner contained in these pens can be used...
