Abstract

This paper explores the different demands of scripted and unscripted story writing tasks and the extent to which the task prompts pupils to adopt different writing behaviours and attitudes. The results raise questions about how children are taught to write stories and suggest that a better understanding of the demands of story-writing task could challenge teacher attitudes and beliefs about imagination and creativity in writing.
