Getting your students excited about writing begins with offering projects that are interesting, relevant, and challenging. Don’t Forget to Write for the Secondary Grades offers 50 creative writing lesson plans for mature young writers developed by the imaginative and highly acclaimed 826 National writing centers. These lessons cover a myriad of skills (developing characters and voice), interests (novel-writing, song-writing, screenwriting), and even interest levels. (Don’t believe us? try out “This Class Sucks” or “My Boring Life” for those hard-to-reach writers.) Each unique lesson is written by educators, 826 volunteers, celebrated authors, actors, and writers.
