Writing Course Term 4: Writing an Adventure Story

Your plane crash lands near a desert island. You swim to shore. Exhausted you collapse on the beach and desperately wonder what to do… write a story of course! This term we’re stuck on an island where something mysterious is happening.

Students are given rough ideas for six sections of a story which they develop and write up to make their very own adventure story over the course of the term. Students often want to write, but struggle for ideas; this is a great way to help them get going but give them the freedom to be creative and let their imaginations run wild.

In these tutorials, the focus is very much on students writing and receiving live, in the moment feedback from the tutor to help them develop their writing.

  • Tutorials – The tutorials are a blend of direct teaching, group discussion of extracts and model writing, and writing practice with live feedback from the tutor
  • Writing requirements – Students need to write during the lessons using online worksheets. Students write at their own pace and receive guidance and encouragement along the way.
  • Feedback and support – Students will receive live feedback on written work during tutorials using Google Classrooms. It is useful to have a Google account that they can use for this purpose
  • Homework – Optional homework opportunities provided.
