Immerse pupils in a spot of imaginary world-building and watch their fiction writing flourish, says Adam Parkhouse.
Maps are everywhere and an integral part of our lives. They are also firm favourites for fiction writers, particularly those with worlds of their own to explore.
From Tolkien through to more contemporary authors like Vashti Hardy and Kieran Larwood, maps continue to be a platform for developing plots, characters and settings; all vital for your budding writers.
This lesson is designed to immerse your pupils in the art of world-building, generating an instant and unique starting point for their own pieces of writing.
