Word Tamer – Teaching Creative Writing and Word Skills

Word Tamer has been developed by the University of Winchester, UK to help develop students creative writing and word skills.  Using audio and video in a very entertaining way, Word Tamer walks student through the creative writing process.

Using the idea of students visiting a carnival, Word Tamer explores Character, Plot, Wild Words, Genre, Setting, etc. by playing a video of the Ring Master giving examples (as only a Ring Master can) and then asking students to create and develop their own ideas.

Very interesting for using with students as they write or for a teacher to watch and get ideas they can use in class.
