Have your students write a novel

I think this is an awesome idea! I’ll need to take a look at the curriculum provided by NaNoWriMo, but I’d bet you could cover most of the English curriculum through writing a novel. What a great way to give students some real-world experience and a great skill at the same time.

Students and teachers are able to improve their writing skills by taking on a big assignment: write a novel.
