BRIGHT WRITERS (9)

ESSAY
We are back this week with new fun writing activities to encourage creativity and flow of ideas.
‘Take Three Nouns’: Here is a nice free writing exercise that you could do with your students in class!
Before class select a number of words(either from previously taught vocabulary lesson or simply random words) and write each word on a ticket. Ask one student in the class to extract three tickets, then write them on the board. For instance the words might be:  DESPAIR      TREE          CAKE
The second step is you have a class discussion with your students.Ask them what the words make them think about when seen together ? How do your students connect them? Brainstorm for creative ideas together then…start writing! 
Famous Book Plot Generator: This writing activity is really useful for those of you who are teaching literature. Select the stories and novels you have taught in class and write a very short summary of their plots. Write each summary on a ticket; you can even leave out the author and the name of the book. Here is an example:
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess : In future Britain, charismatic delinquent Alex DeLarge is jailed and volunteers for an experimental aversion therapy developed by the government in an effort to solve society’s crime problem – but not all goes according to plan.
Ask the students in your class to extract a ticket and write their own story having the plot summary as a starting point. 
Have fun writing and don’t forget, if you want to give your students extra motivation to write, let them know that Shakespeare School Essay Competition is still open for participation!
