This PowerPoint has a number of resources that helped me teach creative writing to a class of mixed ability students. They worked with SEND and EAL as well as high abillity, it is all about stretching the students no matter what level. Everything is editable.
I think that sometimes showing students a WABOLL and getting them to think about how to improve it using the mark scheme to help them is really very successful. I have created two stories that need improving for various reasons. Both of the stories are leveled on how much assistance I give (differentiated using RAG). These stories gave me two double lessons worth of work as the students improved the stories then used the plan to help them write their own, more interesting version of the stories.
Each of the stories are written with space for the students to make notes on how they would improve the sections. It is aimed at encouraging students to extend descriptions of places and characters as well as include better adjectives and verbs.
Alongside this I have also added some sentence improvement chili challenges and vocabulary help sheets. This takes the form of synonym help for the words: and, but, said, then, look, smell, feel, see, hear, loud, quiet, soft, old, funny, walk, run, talk, play, say, jump, eat, drink, fall, move, lift and hit. I used the chili challenges as extension activities but they can be used as a starter or a plenary too. They are designed to be cut out, stuck into an exercise book and then completed underneath. Students could cut them out and stick them in. If you gave them timings to get them stuck in or for a certain amount to be completed then it speeds up the cutting and sticking process, especially if it is a challenge against students.
