Coming full circle - cyclical structures in creative writing

Using lines from well-known poems as inspiration, students build a story which begins and ends in the same place. Excellent for thinking about whole-text structure, but giving students lots of freedom as to the genre, style and tone of their writing. Helpful for both KS3 and KS4 classes.

Sample content

Task 1
Look at the following sentences/phrases. Decide to what extent you like each one as the potential opening to a piece of creative writing and, in the box to the right, justify why.

1 = I love it! -----------------------------------------------------------------  10 = I hate it!

'But the sea, the sea in the darkness calls.'
