Product Description
• “My Turn, Your Turn” is a method of specifically guiding students in the process of Creative Writing.


• As young students do not have rich and plentiful life experiences from which to draw, it is incumbent on teachers to use different methods to assist students in this process.


• This Creative Writing Idea entitled "My Special Place" is a way for:


a. a teacher to develop a dialogue and rapport with students.


b. students to express their feelings and emotions


c. teachers to discuss and implement paragraphing


• Follow-up Activity: Students write a “free-form” acrostic poem about his or her special place. (See “My Turn, Your Turn” Poetry Writing)


• Further Follow-up: Ask each student to create a miniature drawing to illustrate her/his written work once the student has finished the “good copy” of the work. (This was usually done with a fine line black pen and coloured pencils or textas.) Students can their own art work with pre-cut coloured paper backgrounds which are glued underneath their short story or poem. This can also form of a specific art lesson .A student’s art work often provides a teacher with further insight into their feelings and how they interpreted their written work into art form.





The concept of “My Turn, Your Turn” has been developed by Janet Gravlev, recipient of the Prime Minister of Canada’s Award for Mathematics, Science and Technology, through her teaching of Creative Writing (and other subject areas) to Year 4 Extension students in private school settings in Canada and Australia.
