What is my homework?
You will need to think carefully about the audience, purpose and form for each of these homework tasks:
Week 1. Create an information leaflet or fact-file on the author of the novel/play you are currently reading in your English lessons, aimed at your peers.
Week 2. Describe a scene from the novel/play you are reading. You should imagine that someone has taken a photo of a key moment in the novel for you to describe. Consider the range of devices and techniques you should use.
Week 3. Imagine that you are one of the main characters in the novel/play you are reading with your class. You should write a journal (diary) entry or blog as if you are that character at this stage in the novel. Don't forget to explore his/her thoughts and feelings!
Week 4. Use the title of the novel/ play you are studying as the title for your own short story. It must be no more than 250 words in length!
Week 5. What are some of the themes and issues dealt with in the novel/play you have been studying? Write the script of an interview between you and a journalist in which you explain some of the main themes in the novel/play and how you feel about the issues explored.
Week 6. You will have finished or be nearing the end of your class novel/play by this point. Write a letter to the author of the book, giving your opinions on the story, characters and themes. You could also ask some questions on the novel/play.
