Language Arts Lesson - "Creative Writing Activities"

Created by Dianne Mason

Grades 9-12

These fun-filled, beneficial activities will help your students become more creative writers. These classroom-proven activities will ensure that students know how to add pertinent details and descriptions to all of their writing, to create fresh similes and metaphors, and to develop a narrative that is well-structured and interesting to read.

The package includes the following:
Mixed-up Stories Exercise
• Finish the Story Exercise
• Start and Stop Exercise
• Clever Clich├ęs Exercise
• Descriptive Writing to Create a Dominant Impression
• Peer Editing Guidelines for Creative Writing
• Rubric for Grading Creative Writing Papers

The time varies for each activity and for each class. Most of the activities can be done in 30 minutes to one hour. I've never done them all at one time.
