This product has been specially developed and designed by 186 Media uniquely to exploit the power of high quality moving image and sound with the flexibility of DVD. The design of The Write Kit takes interactivity to a new level.
17 video-based Creative Writing exercises on interactive DVD to boost students’ imaginative responses. Devised by Whitbread Poetry Prizewinner Michael Symmons Roberts, Professor of Creative Writing at Manchester Metropolitan University. Featuring novelist Adele Geras, playwright Hardeep Singh Kohli and journalist George Dearsley. Each exercise is mapped to the National Curriculum and National Literacy Strategy.
Infused with humour, each mini-drama is broadcast-quality and guaranteed to grab the attention and increase contribution to discussion, while promoting individual creative development.
We undertook the audio post production for all the content in this toolkit including 11 mini dramas for our friends at 186 Media.
The quality of the production is excellent and very easy to navigate. I’ve tried it out on the interactive whiteboard and it worked extremely well. Students are obviously very receptive to this sort of visual stimulus as long as the quality is good, which this certainly is. I congratulate you on an excellent product that combines engaging and entertaining content without compromising the integrity of the writing process.

Many thanks for the disk it has been a tremendous success! I have trialed it with all my classes from yr 7 through to yr 10 and all pupils have enjoyed the creative story task. I was particularly pleased with the responses from my bottom set yr 9 – they all said that they have never written so much and in so much detail. Many groups are very keen to know when they are ‘going to do that dvd stuff’ again. I have used it not only as creative wtg but as a newspaper report due to the ‘factual’ approach of the actors – excellent idea by the way – and pupils will use them to do in-depth interviews with the characters. I also intend to use it as a resource for a piece of drama getting the pupils to take the various roles and be interviewed live on a TV talk show.
