Teaching Ideas via The Literacy Shed

  • Describe the opening scenes.
  • Describe the journey, what the girl could see as they went along, perhaps one of the other passengers.
  • Write a newspaper report detailing what happened, maybe the driver thought everyone was off, the tram went over and they found the girl the next day amongst the wreckage.
  • Write a conversation between the girl and the person she meets at the end.
  • Write a first person account of the accident from the girls point of view,she could be sending a message from heaven.
