Hi all, I'm currently amending a creative writing scheme of work which focuses on all of the AFs (with the exception of spelling). One lesson in particular focuses on punctuation - semi-colons, commas etc are introduced followed by a little quiz where they have to identify the punctuation that is missing. So far, so good. My next task was for students to 'pimp a script' (like pimp my ride if anyone has seen the programme!) - they would be given a piece of text from a well known book - all punctuation and exciting use of vocab is removed and they have to amend it to make it less boring. In theory, this doesn't seem like a bad task but I found in reality it didn't work as well as I would have liked. I feel like they have to do much as they are trying to add all punctuation in and then trying to add in exciting words - it doesn't work. Can anyone think of anything blindingly obvious that I can do to make this a much better task? I like the idea of them making something better - should I create my own little pieces of text or maybe get rid of trying to add in vocabulary? It is rather annoying that I can't think of anything! Any ideas?
