Video Discussion:

Tell students they will be watching the video titled, Literary Arts Careers. Explain that the video presents role models talking about why girls should consider a career in the literary arts.

After viewing the video, invite students to share specific things they learned about literary arts careers featured in the video and to reflect upon their observations (e.g., "I didn't know that literary arts careers could be so much fun and creative. It would be great to be paid well for doing such an interesting job.").

  4. Glue the picture to the cut-out spot in the center of the worksheet.
  5. Have the students write their short story on the worksheet to create their minibook.
