"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.

Abstract

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.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
