a living essay

Has anyone done something similar to this? If so did it work? how was it structured? what potential pitfalls lie in stake for me? Have I gone completely insane (you don't need to answer that one.)

I then took a photo and we put it on the IWB and this became their essay plan. The kids really enjoyed it but it can get a bit crazy. Also, what about them assessing each others paragraphs?
Hope this helps,

This will be great to show the structure needed to plan and write any extended writing task.
Over how many lessons did the group work on this?
Will be attempting this with some of my groups this week!
Well done again- great example of active History.

I have done this myself with a particular question from the WJEC paper - the interpretations question in the sources section, part d).
I gave the pupils parts of the answer to draft, in pairs/ threes, on sugar paper, which we pinned up and then gave each pair/ three a 'character card' - they became[i] part of the answer.
Their cards were things like:
'I am the information supporting the interpretation. I am happy/ unhappy because ....'
'I am the sources which do not support the interpretation. I am happy/ unhappy because ...'
'I am the process the author went through to arrive at these conclusions. I am happy/ unhappy because ...'
Pupils then used this to constructively criticise the bits of the answer.
It also works well at A-level, for more traditional AS/ A essays.

it is also nice to show them one i have done before so they cans ee the format and then tell them that actually the one being shown is rubbish and i expects the one that they do to be SO much better!
