This is a sustained creative writing project designed for Y7, but it can be used for older or younger students depending on ability. The premise is the discovery of a new planet by NASA; they have selected the student as Special Envoy for Earth and sent them on a diplomatic mission. Throughout the narrative, students are asked to complete a variety of writing tasks: an article, a diary entry, a dialogue and a persuasive speech. Tips on each form are provided in the document. It can take as much time as the teacher wants - a variety of other tasks could be incorporated, such as performing dialogues and speeches.
