TASK 1 : Read and draw
Read the description of the room that Doon finds on p.156
Now using what you have read, draw a detailed picture of the room.
Re-read the description of the room and make sure everything is how your imagined.
This shows how powerful descriptive narrative can be at painting a picture in our minds.
We are going to be learning how to write descriptive narratives that build a powerful
image in the readers mind.
EXTRA TASK: You may want to ask a family member to read the description on P.156 and get them to draw the room. Then you can compare how the same narrative description, conjures different images in the minds of each reader. How are your drawings similar/different?
TASK 2: ANALYSIS
