"Does violence breed violence?" and other sensitive and problematic themes: An upper primary multiliteracies project based on the award winning novel "Someone Like Me" by Elaine Forrestal
Exley, Beryl E. (2007) "Does violence breed violence?" and other sensitive and problematic themes: An upper primary multiliteracies project based on the award winning novel "Someone Like Me" by Elaine Forrestal.
The range of activities presented here is designed to engage all students using a range of literacies, and provide a forum for their varying viewpoints on the themes of violence, schoolyard bullying, friendship, international terrorism, death and (dis)ability. The novel, ‘Someone Like Me’, written by Elaine Forrestal, is the stimulus resource rather than the focus of study. As with all of Forrestal’s work, readers will reach junctures where they are deeply affected by events, and perhaps confused by their complex moralities. You can pick and choose between the activities presented depending upon available time, students’ interests and hardware resources.
