This FREE. STUDENT DIRECTED creative writing lesson plan increases fluency and is fun. It is a perfect beginning of the week activity to wake up the writing juices, or to use when there is extra time left and you have nothing to fill it with. Students really enjoy speed writing!

The Lesson Plan includes: 

1. Instructions on how to use the lesson plan
2. The writing process steps for teaching the plan 
3. An Idea Organizer that taps into the student's personal bank of knowledge
4. A paragraph organizer that guides the students through writing the introduction, body, and conclusion
5. Two scoring guides (one includes the six traits of writing) so students know what the expectations are, how they will be evaluated, and allows them to grade their own papers before turning it in for the final teacher evaluation.
6. An art/drawing worksheet to go along with the lesson

  1. Hmm, my friend is a bog writer – I think he will definitely find these creative writing lessons useful. I, on the hand am an essay-writer, providing Best Essay Service at, and I require research and technical writing skills more than the creative skills, to be successful at what I do. So, I am sharing with him the link and getting back to working on the essay that I have to submit tonight.

  2. Many students struggle writing their assignments professionally. They become overwhelmed with the extensive research and systematic analysis required to write impactful law essays.

  3. I believe he will benefit greatly from these creative writing classes. On the other side, I work as an essay writer for, and to be good at what I do, I need more research and technical writing skills than creative abilities. As a result, I'm sending him the link and returning to work on the essay that I have to turn in tonight.
