I turned my writing tools into "poet secrets" and taught creative writing for 10 years in elementary schools in Colorado. During that time, my students took honors in many poetry contest through the area.
The program consisted of a 20 minute segment introducing a new skill and poems that show how to creatively use this technique. The next 20 minuets involved actual writing. The final 20 minutes was a time for reading and rework.
In addition to the student classes, there was an in-service for teachers who may not be comfortable teaching creative writing. In the workshop, they receive tips and "cues" which they can use when introducing writing assignements.
This is just one typical lesson plan used for a creative writing class.
