PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

SEE VIDEO to see how I use it in my classroom: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sub3HEJs0Qw

A collection of 50 texts to inspire creative writing.


This easy to use teaching style has changed my life!! There is enough material here for a full year since each activity takes about two classes, and many could be used multiple times throughout the year using different themes.

Students first do a "Close reading" of text, to break down text exploring style, literary devices, patterns, and general elements of the text. Provide different coloured pens, highlighters and sticky-notes! Students love this!

They then create their own version.

Finally, they edit it, and produce a final copy. Each lesson takes about 50-75 minutes and has been massively successful in my class!

My tip would be to do 4-5 writing activities, and then students go back and have full editing days.

I teach a modified English language class of students that are 12-15 years old, but their reading level is between grade 1-grade 6. This has worked for everyone!
