VIDEO-BASED CREATIVE WRITING

VIDEO-BASED CREATIVE WRITING

This four-page creative writing activity based on BBC's short video, 'The Supporting Act' is ideal both for ELA and ESL students. It includes two graphic organizers to scaffold writing a summary, before the creative writing activity. Play the video until 00:59 and ask your students to predict the rest of it. At the end of the creative writing project, you can also show this video https://vimeo.com/82282346 to your students for fun.

A list of 55 questions for EAL/ESOL students - Speaking /Vocabulary - Term plan

55 questions organised into popular and relevant themes. Each topic includes a creative task to assist with cementing understanding. The questions are based on Blooms taxonomy and aim to extend higher thinking in the student's second language. I use this resource at the beginning of my one on one lessons. I ask a question each lesson and work through the list. It's a productive and highly organised way to promote speaking skills. Each topic has five questions.

Facebook Addicts

Facebook Addicts

This lesson is based on an article that discusses addictions to social media. It is designed to mimic the Cambridge extended Language paper for Reading (papers 1 & 2: Core and Extended) and the Writing (paper 3). It uses one source text (as opposed to two for the reading and 1 for the writing paper). Initial activities are meant to help pupils access and understand the meaning of the text, whilst enhancing their vocabulary, whereas the later activities are replicas of the questions they would be asked in the Reading and then Writing exam. It could equally be used as the basis for a PSHE discussion regarding sensible use of social media.
