This is a creative writing scheme of work I’ve developed for year 10 or 11. It’s designed to prepare them for the AQA English Language Paper 1 Section B, although you could remove these parts and just use it to prepare students for a creative writing task.
It’s also a great excuse to read some great examples of modern writing which I encourage students to borrow ideas from. I use excerpts from: The Great Gatsby, Shantaram, The Bourne Ultimatum, 1984, The Big Sleep and The Goldfinch. You get a good idea about my taste novels from that list!
You can download the first two lessons here:
