CREW3: From Reading to Writing Ultimate Teaching Pack AQA

All you need to teach the unit and so much more!

The ultimate teaching pack for AQA Creative Writing: CREW3 From Reading to Writing Question 1. It includes activities for all four genres (prose fiction, poetry, script, prose non-fiction) plus two sample practice exam papers, glossary and reading list.

Each key feature within a genre has its own hand-out, which include key information, a suitable extract, discussion questions and creative writing tasks based on the extract.

Absolutely matches CREW3 and will certainly be the 'go to' resource for me. I will recommend this on any forum on which teachers/lecturers share their experiences of teaching creative writing. R Hill, Creative Writing Lecturer & Independent Reviewer
