When looking for inspiration for teaching The Pearl to a Year 9 class, I stumbled across this creative writing idea.  In essence, the idea is that students use the structure and thematic concerns of The Pearl as a blueprint for crafting a modern-day version of the text.

I love this activity as it requires students to engage with the text while also introducing them to creative writing.  In fact, I love it so much that I want to adapt it for my Year 7 class who are currently studying The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.
