Are you teaching middle-school or early high school creative writing? I am and so I pulled out all stops to create a packet that has it all! You don't need to add anything more! It's all here: a mission statement; word collection pages; writer's tricks of the trade; quick writing prompts; choices for partner writing activities; choices for personal writing! Together, students can write myths, legends, or homework excuse notes. On their own, they can write about a journey, a family member of another generation, architecture (a house or other structure that holds stories), or a mystery. I am really excited to offer this packet. I have worked on this for a LONG time and am confident that it will carry me (and you) through the summer in style. Students will be excited, challenged, and supported in writing with great word choice and powerful imagery!
