5 Day Creative Writing Workshop

Work with a particularly disengaged group of Year 9 students on a literacy based initiative, assisting in particular with creative writing and the structure of a story.

The Workshop

During five short interactive workshops, students were taken through the process of creating their very own comic book. With a focus on improving key literacy skills they created the character profiles, storyboards, illustrations and complete final comic strip inclusive of dialogue, description and SPaG.

The Result

A clear improvement of 1-2 sub levels on average and a more confident approach to creative writing. Each student received their very own comic book featuring all their work, professionally transformed by our Illustrator.

“One of our students should have had an anger management session. He didn't want to miss his work with Engaging Education, as he was enjoying the project and doing some really good work. He has real issues with motivation and behaviour so to see him wanting to take part in a lesson was wonderful.”
