Engage, enthuse and inspire your students to write, no matter their age or ability, with Welcome to Wonderland!
Challenge your students to create a fictional world before writing a mini saga, a story in just 100 words, inspired by their world. Will they create a parallel universe, re-write history, opt for sci-fi or fantasy realms, or perhaps a post-apocalyptic world will spark their creativity? Speculative fiction is a portal to wherever students' imaginations take them…
