Creative Literacy Story Plans for English GCSE are an original method to help students face the challenges of the new English Language GCSE creative writing fiction questions. Each section of the book has a Speech and a Structure task, which can be combined. Students use the Speech and Structure scenarios to create stories which include set characters. Many students struggle with the basics of writing a story for their exams and then also have a seemingly endless list of requirements from school to help them pass the stringent new guidelines. This book takes away the pressure and allow students to work through lots of story types and scenarios. This means they find out their own strengths and weaknesses without being expected to add every vital component of this section of the exams.

Music videos were once something broadcast by MTV and received on our TV screens. Today, music videos are searched for, downloaded, and viewed on our computer screens -- or produced in our living rooms and uploaded to social media. In We Used to Wait, Rebecca Kinskey examines this shift. She investigates music video as a form, originally a product created by professionals to be consumed by nonprofessionals; as a practice, increasingly taken up by amateurs; and as a literacy, to be experimented with and mastered. Kinskey offers a short history of the music video as a communicative, cultural form, describing the rise and fall of MTV's Total Request Live and the music video's resurgence on YouTube. She examines recent shifts in viewing and production practice, tracing the trajectory of music video director Hiro Murai from film student and dedicated amateur in the 1990s to music video professional in the 2000s. Investigating music video as a literacy, she looks at OMG! Cameras Everywhere, a nonprofit filmmaking summer camp run by a group of young music video directors. The OMG! campers and counselors provide a case study in how cultural producers across several generations have blurred the line between professional and amateur. Their everyday practices remake the notion of literacy, not only by their collaborative and often informal efforts to impart and achieve literacy but also by expanding the definition of what is considered a valuable activity, worthy of dedicated, pleasurable pursuit.

"The teaching of literacy is a high priority for teachers and for governments, yet some of the approaches commonly used are very limiting, joyless and, ultimately, ineffective. In contrast, Fred Sedgwick shows how literacy can be combined with, and promoted through, a love of reading and children's ability to think and write creatively." Using a wide variety of rich resources, the author shows how to put creative approaches into practice and illustrates, through children's work, just how rewarding those results can be.

Part 2 contains ten structured, practical units of work, each based on a different story, poem, play or traditional tale or rhyme and each linked directly to the requirements and objectives of the NLS and the QCA objectives for speaking and listening. Part 3 contains photocopiable Literacy Support Sheets for teachers to use and adapt for their own classroom needs. All units of work have been tried and tested by the authors, giving teachers a springboard from which to enhance and extend their literacy lessons, and engage the imagination of their pupils. The book is also the ideal resource for student teachers.
