Enthral imaginations with creative writing as young writers create their own mini saga!
'Unsolved' invites your students to write a mini saga (a story told in just 100 words) inspired by the crime & mystery genre.
Will they fight for justice? Take on the role of detective in an enthralling whodunit? Or embark on an adventure as a fugitive?
Create a buzz in your English lessons as your students get excited to write!
There's a fun 1-minute video to introduce your students to the activity, plus a students' info guide and worksheet, and we've even got virtual classrooms covered with options such as the Word Doc version of the entry form and the Online Writing Portal - simply login or create your free teacher account at www.youngwriters.co.uk/teacher
Writing a story in 100 words is a challenge, so simplify the plot to keep them on track...
A crime is committed Clues are examined Suspects interviewed The culprit is revealed
Your students can focus on one area, such as writing about the crime or perhaps be a detective pondering a tricky clue and working it out so the culprit is revealed in the last sentence. They could focus on the culprit, perhaps an internal monologue of their thoughts, or their explanation for their crime.
