For students, English is mandatory; for me, it's a passion. Driven to unlock in my students the joy I find in English language and literature, I strive to make interesting lessons based on topics students tell me they love, and throw as much creativity into the mix as I can to stave off boredom for everyone.
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.
