Teaching Writers: Generating and Collecting Ideas


Suitable for Year F – 6

Strategy Lesson – Love That Character! F-6

Year Level 3/4 Worked Example and Instructional Video

 Andrea has created a comprehensive online resource which supports writers to collect and generate ideas. The writers borrow a familiar character to generate problems and solutions to develop their own story.

In the instructional video Andrea borrowed Hairy Maclary and Scarface Claw to model this strategy lesson!

The resource includes:

  • An overview of the strategy – Love that Character.
  • Links to the Australian and Victorian Curriculum

The Strategy Lesson includes a detailed plan

  • Learning Intention
  • Success Criteria
  • Hook
  • Mini Lesson
  • Independent Writing Task
  • Reflection

Photographs, two videos and classroom resources are provided to download.

The instructional video of modelled writing can be viewed by students at home or school.

Differentiation is a key feature of the resource – a range of learning focuses, and texts are provided to support writers F-6.

This lesson is ready to be implemented tomorrow! It can be implemented numerous times as the learning focus can be reshaped to match the learning needs of your writers.
