Writing Course Term 3: The Critic

This term, as part of developing our non-fiction writing skills, we become professional critics. We learn how to create engaging reviews of restaurants, hotels and other businesses by employing humour, irony and surprising imagery in our writing. Through a combination of examining excellent examples of reviews and producing their own writing, students will become confident in using language and structure to create compelling non-fiction texts.

These tutorials are a blend of direct teaching, group discussion and writing. Students receive live feedback on their work in tutorials.

  • 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.
