Kitan CoxHost: As an experienced secondary English teacher, I have taught GCSE and A-Level English (Language and Literature), Media Studies, Extended Project Qualification, Critical Thinking and Drama in a wide range of educational settings in London and Surrey (outstanding secondary schools, academies and a further education college). I am also been involved in motivating students through extracurricular activities inside and outside of school. Additionally, I have a certificate in Life Coaching.

Which words make you think of a playground: clang, smudged, misty, bumpy, peppery, stale? In this class students will get an overview of how to structure descriptive writing, imagining that they are in a playground. They will be shown how to use a range of descriptive techniques as well as how to implement an effective structure to interest readers. This class is aimed at students in Years 7 and 8 but descriptive writing is a great skill to improve upon for all ages!
