Showing not telling- improving creative writing
A ready to go creative writing lesson that could work as part of any unit or creative writing assessment prep and can be easily tailored to focus on other specific skills. The lesson takes students though some short drafts of creative writing and encourages class discussion around the improvements made. Students then write their own short piece of creative writing to be peer assessed and shared with the class. I have also added a homework task to supplement.
Use with high ability KS3 or middle/lower KS4 classes. Would also work well for AQA Paper 1, Question 5 preparation.
