Take the stress out of planning a high school Creative Writing class with this complete, 9-week elective course curriculum bundle! This Complete Creative Writing Class Bundle includes everything you need to teach creative writing skills, poetry analysis, and engage students in a variety of writing at the high school level!
In this engaging 9-week elective creative writing class, students will learn and apply literary terms, analyze mentor texts, and write their own original poems and stories. This full course bundle includes daily warm-ups, projects, individual poem writing activities, mini lessons, and more--everything you need to create a creative writing class that is low-stress and works for both you and your students.
The included bundle-only bonus calendar is flexible. Choose from two different bell ringer or warm-up activities. Move lessons and projects around to suit you or your academic calendar. Plus, most activities and lessons include a digital version, so you and your students can stay on track no matter what! (Writing mini lessons are printable only.)
These lessons and activities are the same curriculum and lessons that I've personally used with my high school creative writing students. My students are usually a mix of low-level 11th and 12th graders. Depending on your students' ability levels, these lessons could work for middle school through high school (look through resource previews to get an idea of rigor).
