Last Night Another Story

  • Airds High Briar Rd Ambarvale NSW 2560 Australia (map)

with Airds High

In term 2, Year 8 students at Airds High will be studying Andy McNab's Last Night Another Soldier. In this workshop series, students will recreate a model of a battlefield, and tell stories from the perspectives of soldiers present in, on, and around the battlements and fortifications, and surrounding environs. They will examine a number of scenarios, and generate written, spoken, and dramaturgical content that will then become the basis of a publication. The main focus will be on capturing the narrative voice of a soldier. To assist with this, students will also focus on creating settings, and will physically design the battlefield itself, before they populate it with characters and stories.

This is a closed school workshop series.
