NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION

Today we are going to be planning our own narrative description, linked to the story The City of Ember.

 

TASK 1: READ

Read to p.171 where Lina leaves her house. Use the map to trace her journey to Doon's house. Remember to do this carefully and make sure to include all of the places that she passes on her travels.

 

TASK 2: PLAN

I would now like you to think about what Lina's journey would have looked like and how you could describe it. Use the key features of a descriptive narrative checklist to help you.

Create a mind map of all of the features that could be described.

Think about:

  • The age/style of the buildings
  • What the roads would've been like
  • how light/ dark each part of her journey would have been
  • What could she see, smell, touch, taste, hear?

REMEMBER: Think very carefully about Ember, it is old, dark and rotting.
