Young Writers SS
With students out of the habit of writing they may struggle with generating ideas and getting started, so why not get them to help each other? This tip is great because it takes the pressure off the writer as they aren’t solely responsible for the story.
Get your students to work in pairs (they don’t need to be sat close to each other for this to work). Each student needs to come up with a scenario where their partner is trapped, be sure to encourage original and creative ideas. Once they have come up with their idea they explain to their partner the situation and they then have 100 words to get out… or not!
