Imaginative Text - Description
Description of activity
Students plan, draft and compose an imaginative text. They focus on using language features to create a strong sense of place, character and/or atmosphere.
Students have read literary texts and explored how language is used to engage an audience. They compared the visual and written techniques used by authors and evaluated the impact that language had on the reader. Students were asked to compose an imaginative text that demonstrated controlled use of language to evoke mood and create atmosphere.
Criteria for assessing learning

Students will be assessed on their ability to:
- plan, draft and write literary description
- use detail to help a reader imagine what is being described
- use a range of adjectives to describe an image
