Transcript

  • 1. Noir Unit: Revising Suspense
  • 2. What are we learning? Suspense? Impact sentences Creepy noises/suspicious sights Calling out/heart/sweating
  • 3. Why are we learning ‘suspense’? • Longer sentences • Semi-colons; colons; bracketing comma Set the scene: 6-8 lines • Impact sentences • Short (one-line) paragraphs • This creates contrast Last part of story
  • 4. How can I do well? • Use a range of suspense techniques; • Include scene of suspense in your timed writing; • Make the reader feel scared! • By using longer sentences when setting the scene, have a varied prose style; • Create ‘spooky’ atmosphere when setting the scene.
  • 5. How can I be a clever-clog? • Create a ‘Lewton bus’ effect • Use a non-linear structure – a ‘flash forward’ (putting the end of a story at the ‘top’ of the page, before ‘cutting back’ to the rest of the story)
  • 6. Learn more • Visit http://www.baldworm.co.uk and read about suspense and non-linear structures; • Visit YouTube and watch ‘Bald Worm on Suspense’; • Download a copy of the ‘Bald Worm on Suspense’ podcast from the pupil wiki and listen to it on your iPod or computer.
