Creative writing formats - play scripts and letters

Creative writing formats - play scripts and letters

A pdf for handout or presentation on formal letters, and a detailed look at play scripts and how to format them, using two exemplars (one of which is from a past pupil). I have used both of these formats to differentiate GCSE English Language creative writing: for pupils who struggle with story structure, they can write a series of letters, or a letter and a reply, based upon characters they know from novels they've studied. Scriptwriting is excellent for gifted and talented pupils who find short story composition not challenging enough. Drama pupils will also benefit from the analysis in the scriptwriting section of how setting and stage directions function. This will aid GCSE and A-level pupils compose their own scripts (I adapted this from a course I taught in first-year university). For KS3 Communication, I used this letter-writing framework for final assessment on novel (so, can be adapted to mark either Reading or Writing as a Key Curriculum Skill).

UAL Level 3 Diploma Shakespeare Short Assignment Brief

UAL Level 3 Diploma Shakespeare Short Assignment Brief

I have used this assignment brief for UAL Level 3 Diploma Performing and Production Arts Unit: Developing Performance and Production Skills. It involves the staging of an abridged version of Romeo and Juliet, but can be adapted to accommodate any Shakespeare play, or indeed any play for this qualification. It can also be adapted for BTEC delivery.
