Discuss how language is used to describe the settings in texts, and explore how the settings shape the events and influence the mood of the narrative

Elaborations

  • identifying and discussing the use of descriptive adjectives (‘in the middle of a vast, bare plain’) to establish setting and atmosphere (‘the castle loomed dark and forbidding’) and to draw readers into events that follow (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social Capability)
  • discussing the language used to describe the traits of characters in stories, their actions and motivations: ‘Claire was so lonely; she desperately wanted a pet and she was afraid she would do anything, just anything, to have one to care for’ (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social Capability)
