Inspiring Writing through Drama offers interactive, high-quality drama schemes that will motivate and
inspire students aged 7-16 to write for a range of purposes and audiences.

Each drama unit offers:

• A planning grid flagging the writing
opportunities within the drama
• Original resources, such as poems, text messages
and fragments of graffiti
• Individual, group and whole-class writing
opportunities, some teacher-led and others guided by the students
• Icons to signpost differentiated activities

Reading, writing, speaking and listening
opportunities are embedded within the drama experiences, and you can follow the
schemes or use the texts as a springboard to developing your own drama units
and writing opportunities. The authors offer guidance on using drama strategies
imaginatively and encourage you to assess the impact on the writing outcomes of
your students. This book offers a clear methodology and high-quality practical
drama activities that will motivate students to write purposefully within
compelling imaginary contexts.
