Okay, so I’ve added some more resources to my ‘readers and writers’ dropbox. This one is using moving image to discuss narrative. I’ve clipped the opening to an episode of The X-Files – season 6, ‘Drive’ starring Bryan Cranston. It’s a fantastic way to explore narrative hooks, dangling causes and omniscient narration. You’ll find the video clip (sorry Twentieth Century Fox, but it is for academic purposes and no money is changing hands), some teachers notes which offer some exegesis (but you will find more, I’m sure) and a PPT (basic – you can add to this). This would be great to do either before or after the suspense lessons I’ve already posted – especially the extract from The Stand. Have a look, let me know what you think and let me know if the files work!
