Creative Writing – Assessment Guidance

The students have embarked on their creative writing assessment – and will be working on it for the next three periods. They may also work on it at home, and have promised not to accept external assistance.

To follow is the assessment guidance for this assessment, which arises from their response to three stimuli in class – a sound, an image and a sentence starter.

    No, there are no specific limits – I explained to the boys that they need to keep their work short enough to be able to edit it properly, but long enough to develop their ideas. Around 300 words is a good rough guide.
