Product Description

Writing can be hard work. Good writing most often results from much rewriting, and much rewriting can make a writer weary. Since Philosophy Adventure students polish one primary writing assignment over the course of several weeks (supported by clear step-by-step instructions and seven writing checklists), we created freewriting exercises to offset their hard work with play.

We quickly discovered that even students who considered themselves “non-writers” produced surprisingly creative work using these exercises. (Some parents even joined in the fun!)

Use Creative Freewriting Adventure as a stand-alone resource or to complement Philosophy Adventure. No prep required. Just grab a pen and paper, set a timer, and have fun!

Kim Kautzer“When the pressure is off, and teens are free to write for fun, their creativity can soar—often with stellar results! Stacy Farrell’s thematic writing prompts encourage teens to engage with some of the great philosophers in a way that’s both nonthreatening and exciting. Each prompt invites students to experience a snapshot moment in time and describe it using sensory details. For families who love to incorporate writing across the curriculum, Creative Freewriting Adventure is a winner.” —Kim Kautzer, Creative Director, WriteShop

 

Sharon Watson“What a delight Stacy Farrell’s Creative Freewriting Adventure—A Journey into Freewriting is! Instead of simply writing stories, students are asked to become characters themselves and step into the thick of an adventure in progress. This is prompt-writing ingenuity at its best. Storywriters will ask for more, and I suspect that even the most uncreative students will enjoy exploring these new worlds.”—Sharon Watson, Writing with Sharon Watson

 

Terri Johnson“Bravo, Stacy Farrell! Creative Freewriting Adventure is sure to get kids writing without complaint! The tie-in to history and philosophy are genius. So are the writing prompts that take away the aggravation of figuring out what to write by asking thought-provoking questions that get kids thinking and, even better, laughing. I can’t wait to use this with my own kids!”—Terri Johnson, Editor & Publisher, Knowledge Quest, Inc.

    When I first saw this, I knew my oldest daughter- 10th grade- would love it. She loves creative writing and especially enjoys being given a prompt and having time to think and then write without worrying about spelling. She was, indeed, excited about the book, and she plans to continue using it as we head into the fall school semester.

    But after I had an opportunity to look at the book, I also think it would be a great writing program for reluctant writers.

    This is going to be a fun addition to our fall curriculum. It doesn’t take a lot of time and my son isn’t pressured to write a perfect essay. I like that the writing prompts are not only fun, but interesting and educational. My son doesn’t have to grab ideas out of thin air. I think it’s an especially good product for reluctant writers. But your voracious writers will enjoy it as well. Read more at: http://chargeforwhining.blogspot.com/2014/08/a-review-creative-freewriting-adventure.html

    Creative Freewriting Adventure: a journey into freewriting, is a ten-lesson program for middle school and high school students. It presents innovative writing exercises that challenge students, energize the writing process, and encourage creativity….as well as fun!

    You might be wondering what freewriting is, exactly…although I imagine that you can guess at the word’s meaning just by looking at it. Freewriting exercises are designed to provide students with ideas that are intriguing and unusual, that will then spark stimulating thinking and writing.

    I quickly downloaded and registered my PDF Copy of CFA. It wasn’t quite what I expected. So far, writing prompt curriculum tidbits have been a list of leading questions. What do you think about . . . . What would you do if . . . . Some days it is hard to just start out with those questions. What is different about these creative writing prompts is that it leads with history and philosophy infusing critical thinking to bring the student into the creative writing mode.
