Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A consideration of the stimulation of creative writing in young people. especially in the upper stages of secondary school. The author considers his experiences as a teacher and as a professional creative writer. The author suggests that more process-strategy approaches need to be employed to develop a writing culture in the classroom, and offers an exemplar activity with pupil responses for discussion.
