Word Tamer – Teaching Creative Writing and Word SkillsPosted: October 4, 2011
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.
