Observing and describing in Storm Boy 2: Describing a person
Story - Narrative
Middle years and up
describing relationships to setting
- Describe a person in terms of their relationship to their environment over time.
- In this lesson, we model Colin Thiele's description of Storm Boy. What's interesting and challenging about this passage is it describes a character through their relationship with their environment, and how that relationship changes as the environment changes. Again, the language is lyrical, with turns of phrase that might be challenging for students.
