Creative Prose NOT Your Tired Old, Humdrum, Ho-Hum Sequence of Learning!
Most creative prose resources rely on inserting more similes and adjectives into a poorly thought out story. This resource is different because it allows students to create imaginative characterisation from a character's inner and outer world even before they have even felt the effort! (This is a little more challenging in approach than my resource 'Really Creative Creative Prose' so great for Grade 5 and above but the resource is fully differentiated through choice and rising challenge tasks).

The learning sequence will take about two hours and is made up of a PPT of 27 slides that helps you run a creative prose workshop session using simple lists and everyday experiences students ahave (but disregard most of the time). They end the lesson with a section of creative prose that is focused on inner and outer worlds in a story that has more convincing, original and imaginative detail and avoids cliche without the sweat, seemingly.

Based on my work as a professional creative writing tutor and short story writer, this method is probably something you haven't come across before.

I developed this as a lesson observation that was graded outstanding.

Goes nicely with 'Really Creative Creative Prose'

A lovely accompanying resource is the Improving Creative Writing Grid which is a godsend learning mat that I've used across the secondary years for developing the evaluable skills in examined creative prose.
