  • Writing – Describe the background and the characters in detail – Write the story in paragraphs – Add the motivation of the characters
  • Speaking/Listening • Role-play – Add intonation and expression – Audience: Has the content changed? – Are the characters “right”? • Pronunciation practice – Wanna, gonna, other conversational forms – Fluency rather than form
  • Discussion • Surface level – Enjoyment, story ideas • Critical thinking – What was surprising? – What more do you “see”? – How is it different from reading text? – What happens with the order?
  • Why is the picture slanted? Why is the top picture so small?
  • Non-linear text
