I have written a PowerPoint – vastly long – as part of a drive to improve creative writing in IGCSE examinations. This is version 1 and I am indebted both the Maria Trafford, my colleague for help, inspiration and some earlier resources which have been absorbed, and to author Matt Dickinson who gave us his time willingly at the end of a a wonderful creative writing workshop to help us to get some ideas clearly in our heads.
It is some 140 slides… don’t panic. It need not be used in a single sequence, though there are around 20-25 lessons here if needed.
It begins with creative writing suggestions and ends with some slides on 6 common transactional tasks.
This is my first time helping a student who is sitting for GCSE in 2019. Thank you for sharing your knowledge so amateur teachers like us can learn a lot and help kids more confidently.
