Writing Course Term 1: Write a Dystopian Story

We begin our writing course by creating our own dystopian novel. Drawing inspiration from The Hunger Games in the reading course, students learn how to use language to create a world where something seems to have gone terribly wrong and there is huge inequality. Students will have a rough guide to help them generate ideas and they will receive guidance on how best to use language via individualised, in the moment feedback on our online worksheets.

The focus in these tutorials is very much on students writing and receiving feedback to help them make progress and feel confident and excited about 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.
