Non Fiction and Media Pack by Racheal Smith, Mike Gould

With help from real-life media professionals, inspire your class to take on the role of professional writers, reporters, campaigners and presenters. Go Create: Non-fiction and Media will take your class through the steps of being a blogger, news reporter, eco-campaigner and film critic, and will help them to write their own autobiography. The Go Create Non Fiction and Media pack contains five complete schemes of work which allow your students to: * meet the experts * delve into the day-to-day life of writers, performers and media professionals * learn the tricks of their trades * use this knowledge to inform their own creative work. Inspire your Year 7s to take on the role of professional writers, reporters, campaigners and presenters. Structured schemes of work ask students to consider the context they are working within, and give them the skills to plan, develop, edit and appraise their own creative work. The new creative outlets of the internet age are one focus here as students are given the opportunity to reflect on their potential and try them out for themselves. Each flexible Go Create pack comprises: * a CD-ROM packed with activities and stimulating audio-visual resources for classroom display * a printed pack containing photocopiable texts, schemes of work, and classroom resources. The audio visual resources on the CD-ROM don't just present the finished article; they show you how to get there. From writers' drafts to excerpts of broadcasts, performances and rehearsals, the creative process has never been clearer. All lesson plans and worksheets are also available as customisable Word files for you to adapt to the needs of your classes.
