Teaching Creative Writing Successfully at KS3 & KS4

Why should you attend?

If you are keen to improve the quality of your students’ creative writing at KS3 & KS4, reflect on your own practice and extend it and try out practical approaches for the teaching of writing, this course is for you.

She will be using examples from her own novels and taking you through some of the writing exercises she uses herself.

  • What makes a difference? A range of evidence-based strategies for: improving motivation; setting up tasks; providing support for writing; responding to student work.
