Description of activity
Students compose a short narrative in response to one of a selection of stimulus items related to the concept of ‘the monster’ which has been the focus of recent study.
Students have been exploring the ways the concept of ‘the monster’ has been represented in a variety of texts including film and short stories. They have investigated the ways authors use the conventions of narrative and compared the ways different authors have represented the idea of ‘the monster’. They have experimented with using these storytelling conventions in their own short written texts.
