Write Out of the Classroom is a ground-breaking, highly practical book which provides teachers and creative writing tutors with great ways of tapping into the huge inspirational and educational potential of the richly diverse world beyond the classroom walls. Effective learning occurs when the process feels exciting, inspiring and a€˜reala€™, and there is nothing more stimulating and a€˜reala€™ than the real world itself. Working with groups in interesting and evocative settings can generate exceptional participant involvement. Well-led a€˜locational brainstorminga€™ in such places increases vocabulary and produces an astonishing freshness of observation, ideas, language, plot and metaphor. Teachers commonly notice a quantum leap in writing quality arising from these sessions. Based on the authora€™s extensive experience in developing and leading out-of-classroom a€˜intelligent observationa€™ and writing workshops, this unique book steers educators through the subtleties of guiding thoughtful data collection sessions in varied environments; selecting appropriate and motivational places and forms of writing, and running sessions linked to specific creative and factual writing tasks. The book covers the following areas and techniques and how they relate to out-of-classroom work: planning outings and choosing locations; leading language and ideas brainstorm sessions; descriptive poetry inspired by outdoor settings; a€˜reflective haikusa€™, cinquains, and minimalist poetry; creating stunning plots and storylines; collective story writing; fictitious diary forms; descriptive travel writing; understanding poetrya€™s mechanics and sound patterns; assisting students with editing. This detailed, practical book also contains examples of remarkable student creative writing produced through these techniques, as well as photocopiable pages which include original examples of specific writing forms to model from, explanatory diagrams, helpful checklists and handy teachersa€™ a€˜crib sheetsa€™. Write out of the Classroom is the perfect a€˜insider's guidea€™ to teaching and inspiring creative writing. It is an essential tool for classroom teachers in both Primary and Secondary schools, creative writing tutors, literacy co-ordinators and PGCE students, as well as leaders in residential centres and forest schools.Thiscanbe avoided(inMS Word) by pressingthe shiftand enter keys atthe same time, creating a a#39;manual line breaka#39;, or by amending the Auto Correct Options so thata capital isno longer automatically inserted.
