Saturday – Creative Writing Boot Camp (8 Lessons)

Sat, October 17, 2020 - Sat, December 5, 2020 (11:45 am - 12:45 pm)

Description

CREATIVE WRITING BOOTCAMP (8-lessons)

Expand your child’s horizon as they learn more about the joy of creative writing and become confident in using bold, exciting vocabulary. This online programme is designed especially for  11+ preparatory students and primary school learners in general, who want to learn about Creative Writing techniques, tools, and topics like outlining, storytelling, character development, creating a compelling plot, and how to make your words more artful. Most parents don’t know how to help their children in this area. Just writing story after story won’t help much, children need real guidance(we literally mean a bit of handholding :)).  This course covers the ground fully and helps children to develop the skills necessary to attain the highest marks.

Click the below video to have a glimpse of the Creative Writing Online Course.

 

Highlights of the course:

  • What elements of their writing attracts the most marks (it isn’t the plot!).
  • Our teacher will emphasize that focus should be on simple stories with excellent descriptions, vocabulary, and literary techniques and will show them how to do this, step by step.
  • Our teacher will show them how to develop a descriptions bank.
  • Our teacher will encourage them to improve their stories through self-criticism and re-drafting.

The course covers the ground better than any book could hope to and will prove to be very effective in helping children improve their overall writing quality.

8 Sessions Creative Writing Program :

Lesson 1: Introduction – What makes a piece of writing go from ‘good’ to ‘great’?

This session will introduce students to the course and the concept of creative writing. Students will be given sample pieces of writing and be asked to discuss what is good about the essays and what could be improved. This should give students an insight into the style of creative writing and allow them to identify important elements within other’s work, and therefore improve their own.

Lesson 2: Creating Characters – What makes a character interesting and engaging?

All great pieces of creative writing must have a strong, well-developed and interesting character. In this lesson, we will discuss what makes a character appealing to the reader, and have a go at creating detailed descriptions of a character of their choice that will be included in their final piece of writing that will be finished in the last session.

Lesson 3: Setting the Scene – How to develop a convincing, powerful plot:

Every great story largely depends upon the plot, where it is set, when, what will happen, and how to tie all of these different factors together into a coherent and engaging story. The students will be asked to discuss short plot ideas that will be prompted by a number of different scenarios in order to improve their ability to think on the spot (a great quality for exams), and use their imaginations. By the end of the session, students will have a description of a plot for their final piece of writing.

Lesson 4: Getting Speech Savvy – How and when to ‘speak’:

This lesson will focus on teaching students the appropriate punctuation around speech, and how and when is best to use speech to improve their writing. Students will practice including speech in their work.

Lesson 5: Making a Second Draft – How to improve your own work:

The writing the students have done throughout the week is now used as a first draft to edit and improve. Allowing the students to become informed critics of their own work so they can correct it and boost their marks themselves.

Lesson 6: Writing Exercises – Practice makes perfect!

This lesson will involve a range of different activities specifically designed to develop the student’s writing style, ability to form ideas, plots, and overall quality of writing.

Lesson 7: Brainstorming – Get creative!

This will be a fun, informative lesson that focuses upon improving the imagination and helping the students to learn to ‘think outside the box’ and get excited about their writing and ideas.

Lesson 8: The Finished Product!

Students will finalise and then read their final drafts and will receive feedback on their writing. This will focus on reinforcing what the students have learnt throughout the course.

    Dialogue piece – By Priyana Babla – Lesson 4
    A morning in school

    I go into school and say, “morning Miss, how are you today,” and I settle down in my chair and start chatting to my friends, “Hi Scarlett what lessons do you have today.”
    “Hi Priyana, I have: maths, English, history, and art my favorite lessons ever! What about you?”
    “I also have maths, English with you but I also have science and DT with Kiran.” We have the first break after our first two lessons.
    “I am so excited for a break because we all get to play football against the boys, obviously the girls are going to win!”
    “No, we are going to win!” said the boys. The match started the res of the year started gathering around watching us. It was like we were in the Wembley stadium. It was so much fun!
    After three matches it was time to add up the scores… The girls had one we all did victory dances in front of the boys, but then the teacher told us off for not being good sportsmen. It was fine because we had still one! 😊 😊

    My story – By Priyana Babla

    Summer was creeping around. A fresh green field with the animals eating the grass and leaves enjoying their best life. Suddenly, a large shadow oversees the animals. What was it!? A huge yellow machine with sharp blades. The humans start cutting down the trees and building factories all over the place. Pollution fills the air and the animals start dying from the air and no food. They thought why someone would do this. How could humans be so mean? Until one human was kind enough to help the animals and revive the land. His name was Mark, Mark was a nice person who had a little bit of sympathy in his heart. To stop everything and find a better place build factories and pollute the air. The moral is to always think of others before you think of yourself

I have experience of teaching students English and 11+ at a popular tutoring organisation. As part of the English tutoring, many tasks were creative writing based. I was also an English Prefect at school where I ran a creative writing club for younger students in which I helped explain how to make your story as exciting as possible, and how to gain the highest marks. These students also produced multiple different written pieces from different prompts which I marked and provided constructive criticism for. This class received great feedback as the students not only improved in skill and confidence but really enjoyed engaging with their creativity and imagination. I have a high 2:1 degree (69%) in English Literature from Russell Group University of Sheffield. I have this year completed a Master's Degree in Romantic and Victorian Literature from the prestigious Durham University for which I am projected to achieve a Distinction Grade. My plans are now to continue on to do a PhD. I partook in creative writing lessons at school and have developed these skills throughout my time at university. I have also written articles for Durham University's Student Newspaper 'Palatinate' as well as having a paper published in 'The Gissing Journal'. I believe creative writing is a subject that requires not only precision in spelling, punctuation and grammar but largely relies on imagination and passion which I aim to instil in every student I teach. I am extremely passionate about literature and hope my love of literature and creative writing will encourage my students to really engage with the subject.
