In our literature class, we started reading a poem called “rooms”, written by Charlotte Mew. After reading it, we had to do an activity that consists in two parts. In the first part, we had to answer some questions about the previous poem, while in the second activity, we had to read a poem called “Home is So Sad” and contrast it to “Rooms” in terms of style, language and form.
Our language teacher, Pilar Pando, gave us a task. She told us to write a misterious short story based on the extracts of the stories we had already read: “Flying Upside Down” and “The Ehile Town’s Sleeping” We had to use the same language techniques in order to transmit that fear to the reader. I had done this activity with Silvestre Braun and with Martina Ibarbia. We hope you like it!
It is a gloomy night. It is raining heavily. The house is quiet. No one is inside. The rain speeds all over the wall and the dribble sound is the only one heard. Suddenly, I hear another noise. The door cracking. I don’t know what to do. I am alone! I am desperate! Who is there if I am the only one inside the house? I can not resist it any more! I have to go to investigate what that noise is. God please save me! I know I will regret about my actions, but my curiosity won over my mind. I deserve to know what that noise is though I… I’m scared!
Pilar told us to do a crime writing. The task was the following: Imagine you have been convicted to a crime. Write a diary entry explaining why you were forced to commit the crime and how you feel about it. Use at least 5 of the terms learnt in connection with crimes and the legal system.
Our language teacher, Pilar Pando, told us to write two diary entries about a short story we read. We had to write the first entry as if we were the kid’s parents (we have to say that he was an angel), and in the other one, we had to write it as if we were the teacher (we have to describe the kid as if he was an evil gorila). Hope you like it!
