Lesson overview:Writing skills: Responding to a setting stimulus image

  • In this lesson, we will revisit the techniques we have explored for both descriptive and narrative writing by looking at a setting-based stimulus of images linked to our story of the week, 'Heart of Darkness' by Joseph Conrad. We'll work together to first of all mimic Conrad's extract and produce a descriptive opening. Then, we'll try and write three different narrative openings and reflect on which one achieves the strongest impact on a reader.
