What worked well today 18/9/13

I was trying  to communicate to students the importance of getting the basics right before attempting more sophisticated techniques in their creative writing.

I know this has been done before, but presenting the success criteria in the form of pyramid, moving from the fundamentals to the sophisticated, helped pupils to understand what they needed to do to achieve their levels.

Also, clapping along to iambic pentameter is an old favourite that proved useful today.

Finally, I have to say that a big part of being successful today was getting through all five lessons!
