Pass the iPad around and ask students to press the button that will randomnly pick a word for them. Ask them to write down their word on a piece of paper.
Once everyone has pulled out a theme/concept, they will then get more acquainted with it by exploring it through creative writing. For instance, if a student pulled out “self-esteem” they may choose to write a fairy tale that focused on a prince or princess who was receiving a lot of pressure from their parents or perhaps they may choose to write a monologue about it. Or they may get "Conservation" and can choose to write a rap song about it.
It’s entirely up to them and how creative they can be!
