Resource Description

The Author's Thoughts

This activity takes place over two lessons and requires the students to reflect on an interview with the author about the text and how different types of text can be used to present a particular point of view. Reflecting on their own experiences students present a response (either agreeing or disagreeing) with the author. It is assumed that students have read J.M.Coetzee's The Lives of Animals prior to this activity. This activity builds on Lesson 3 (Fact as Fiction), however it can also be run as a stand-alone activity.
