Imaginative Writing SOW - The Supernatural, Sinister and the Downright Scary Unit - 20 Lessons!

Imaginative Writing SOW - The Supernatural, Sinister and the Downright Scary Unit - 20 Lessons!

This is a 20-lesson unit on imaginative writing, originally designed for Year 9 students. It contains a full Scheme of Work, plus homework menu and accompanying anthology of short stories. Each lesson is complete with PowerPoint and any necessary resources. This is a highly differentiated and organised resource with focus on extending the links between reading and writing. There are two assessment points (baseline and final) plus various extended writing opportunities throughout. This has been incredibly successful at my school and has achieved fantastic results in improving students' writing. I hope you enjoy teaching it as much as I enjoyed making it!
