It's important to set attainable goals for this – agree that by the end of five minutes everyone will have written 50 words, say, including the away at this and i always check the class for any strugglers at the end of regular intervals; if someone is stumped, i'll ask them what the problem is, what they tried to start writing at the beginning, what their last sentence is, and give them a couple of options for where to go next. Once they've done this you ask them once more to pass the paper to the next pair on their right. Another operation - passing the stories created by one pair each among different pairs in certain order and making them create further sentence by sentence (if teachers can give some expressive and magic language-descriptions) - can make students travel in different mind - channels, participant-observe others' life and mind-patterns unconsciously, and motivate more creative sparks by themselves.

Being a scottish teacher working in scotland, i use of a suite of videos filmed and hosted by education scotland, which features a number of writers discussing their inspirations and motivations, how to create characters, how to write in genre and how to redraft. But with a little coaching and training, maybe we can hone their skills and abilities that much ive distance is the proximity of a reader's experience to the character's thoughts.
Even everyday incidents can make very effective stories if you elaborate and dramatise, add detail and explanation, always keeping a sense of tension till the end. The listening part comes first: ask the students to draw the face of a person in the top right-hand corner of the page. But if pupils could get to grips with them and become comfortable in zooming in and out on a story, then they will have developed some intricate and powerful writing oldest trick in the book, perhaps, but still a good one.
Metaphor a comparison made without using 'like' or 'as', eg 'sea of troubles' and 'drowning in debt'. While you will be able to view the content of this page in your current browser, you will not be able to get the full visual experience. I don't subscribe to the notion that all good stories must have, for example, an attention-grabbing opening, a turning point, a twist at the end and an extended metaphor.
To develop creatively students need to be exposed to a wide variety of vocabulary as well as being able to confidently choose the right kind of words and phrases to make their writing informative and entertaining. Not the most original rules, perhaps, but if kids can master them their writing becomes much more "show, don't tell", i display a selection of sentences that tell the reader something and ask the pupils to rewrite them in a way that shows the same information. Once all the students have added a sentence to their stories, get them to stop and pass the paper to the pair on their right (this means that every pair of students now has a new character).
