In 2009, the BBC started My Story to collect true life stories from people living in the UK. The project also provided resources aimed at engaging adults with low literacy to participate. While the contest is long over, the project material remains relevant and useful to anyone wishing to work with adults (or youth) who want to start or improve upon their writing.
Planning Your Writing supports practitioners working with adults who are at the initial stages of their writing journey. These resources are focused on helping adults try out different methods for planning their writing, within the context of My Story. This pack contains classroom discussion ideas, factsheets about planning with examples and planning templates, further resource ideas and curriculum references.
