Interactive White Board Lesson- The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan

This is the IWB activity developed by Lauren T. and me.

Aim:

Develop visual literacy. Students will be able to interpret the sequence of emotion in a text from different perspectives by ‘reading’ angles, vectors, colour, character proximity and salience.

Resources:

The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan

IWB Notebook file.

Steps:

  • Reading the text with the whole class and use think-alouds to draw attention to visual features.
  • Model dragging and dropping adjectives that reflect emotion to match appropriate image in the book.
  • Select students to do the same with the emotions/adjectives and ask the class why they think the student has made this choice. Student then drags and drops the technique used as identified by the class.
