Observing and describing in Storm Boy 2: Describing a person
7 pages
Purpose
Describe a person in terms of their relationship to their environment over time.
Description
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.
