This teaching pack is based on materialsdeveloped by the British Council inco-operation with the BBC World Service.Creative Ways, a series of six radioprogrammes, was inspired by the BritishCouncil’s 15th Oxford Conference on TeachingLiterature Overseas held in 2000. The themeof the conference was ‘From Critical Readingto Creative Writing’ and some of the key ideasthat emerged were developed by theprogramme series. Creative Ways alsoincorporated interviews with the academicsand writers involved as well as many of theconference participants. Although the mainfocus of the conference was on teachingliterature in an EFL or ESL context, webelieve the approaches can be used andadapted by all teachers.The six programmes were broadcast round theworld in 2000 and 2001. Each one suggested adifferent approach to using creative writing inthe classroom, as follows:Programme 1Weaving TextsProgramme 2ImagesProgramme 3Stories and EffectsProgramme 4CharactersProgramme 5(Re)ConstructionProgramme 6Experience and ObservationFollowing on from the broadcasts the BritishCouncil and the BBC developed a website (atthe time of going to press there was nopermanent address for this site. If you cannotfind it, please contact us for advice). On thissite you can find tips and exercises on how tostart writing creatively.In this pack you will find a tape of theoriginal programmes, and the teaching noteswritten by Franz Andres Morrissey,University of Berne, Switzerland. Franz is awriter and a teacher of creative writing. Hewas a participant at the 15th OxfordConference. You can make further copies of any of thematerials included so long as they are not soldfor profit.Other packs in the series are: Novel Ways

and ClassicWays
(on new approaches to canonical texts),
based on the 14th and 16th OxfordConference, respectively.
