Dystopias: A Creative Writing UnitQuick View

Dystopias: A Creative Writing Unit

While this unit was made with a GCSE focus, it is highly adaptable since it includes a range of creative writing activities and exercises to help develop written communication - with a flare! From first sentences to understanding how to pick out the fine details that allow for encompassing descriptions, the unit begins by looking at the overall assessment and then works towards it using the aforementioned methods and more. Resources mentioned in the PPT are included, but mostly all content comes straight from the continuous PPT. There are definitely some exciting and involved activities, but this is why I found this unit so successful again and again - and well worth the effort of setting up! You'll work your students' technical skills in punctuation and vocabulary just as much as their imaginations will be invoked.

Creative Writing Story PromptsQuick View

Creative Writing Story Prompts

20 dyslexia-friendly creative writing prompt cards. Designed especially for reluctant writers and those with additional support needs (ASN / SEN), they can be used across a range of abilities to spark imaginative stories. Each A4 card features a photo / picture stimulus, a starter sentence or part-sentence to help launch children into their fiction writing, some prompt questions to get ideas going, a wordbank and some suggested openers to add variety to their writing. A box at the bottom reminds pupils to read their work aloud, check for full stops and capital letters and common spellings. These story generator cards contain a range of subjects and genres including sport, mystery, humour, fantasy and historical and should appeal to boys and girls alike. The resource has been designed to offer maximum support for dyslexic learners and others with similar barriers to learning. The Verdana font and spacing used are both dyslexia-friendly and the pastel background colours are designed to reduce glare. The version with the background colours removed could be used if printing on pastel paper or card. Although they could be used to support the writing of a full story, the cards would work well as a regular tool to support struggling writers in one-to-one or small group sessions, where pupils write just a few sentences inspired by the prompts, without worrying about completing a story. There's plenty of variety across the 20 cards so children could choose those that appeal to them. I hope these cards save you some time and help your learners experience success in writing. I would be grateful for a review if you get a spare moment. Many thanks.

Structuring and Organising Creative WritingQuick View

Structuring and Organising Creative Writing

This highly engaging and informative double lesson (around 1.5 to 2 hours of teaching materials) helps students to build skills in demonstrating appropriate, sophisticated, and original structures in their writing, and provides them with theories and techniques to help them to organise their writing adequately. I wrote this lesson because I noticed that there are an extremely high volume of students that approach extended writing tasks (even in their GCSEs) with practically no sense of organisation. Even though they have clearly learnt a number of writing techniques from their teachers, their writing can be extremely short, repetitive, and in some cases the topic is confused. This lesson aims to address each of those issues. Students learn: - What structure and organisation mean; - Narrative structure theory and 'plot mountain;' - How time order can effect a creative text; - How to expand using the five key senses; - How and when to use paragraphing; - Plan for their own extended piece of writing; Included are all worksheets, and detailed and visual PowerPoint presentation, which explains each concept clearly, and a lesson plan for teacher guidance. Alternatively, you can buy the Descriptive Writing Big Bundle (All descriptive devices lessons, structuring and organising writing lesson, capturing the readers attention lesson, and the literacy writing mat) for £5. All images are licensed for commercial use, and authors are cited on the final slide.
