My writing resource for English students is now available. Here’s the blurb:
Zombie Apocalypse! (for Year 9)
Escape from a zombie invasion while learning about different writing forms with 12 creative writing activities. Your students will love the action-packed, imaginative tasks – from creating a zombie apocalypse survival kit to planning a design brief for fortifications. Suitable for all: support with writing frames and examples, and stretch with ‘challenge’ and ‘extension’ tasks. Written in entertaining and student-friendly language, this resource will harness pupils’ creative potential, culminating in a varied portfolio of work.
It was great fun putting this together, and I hope it proves useful. It’s had some good reviews so far:
“A really different and fun resource. Compliments to the author – I know the boys I teach will enjoy a number of these tasks and I look forward to trying it out next year!” N Boyce, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
“I think that this is a resource with a lot of potential that will be really effective in engaging more reluctant boys within the English classroom.” – H Jackson, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
“The resource is imaginative, creative and entertaining. It has a golden narrative thread running throughout the source whilst avoiding flogging the topic like a dead horse. The author has shown a real flair for creativity and this shows in the careful presentation of the work.” – K Attwood, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
“The resource is suitable for both weak and capable pupils. Particularly good is the self-assessment and commentary, so that pupils can be very clear about what progress they have made across the scheme.” – S Owen, Head of Faculty and Independent Reviewer
