Reader Beware – You’re in for a Scare!

The Horror Genre comes to Melland to help us prepare for Halloween. The Whole School Reading Focus continues at Melland and we saw students this week learning about the work of writer R L Stine. The students have discussed the front covers of the Goosebumps series and brainstormed their ideas in pairs. Most students agreed the genre is horror with maybe some elements of comedy. They then read the ‘blurbs’ and had a discussion about the information on the back of the books and made predictions. They created mind maps with their predictions about the plot, themes, characters and settings. Students examined the possible themes in the stories and decided the following: Fear, Scary, Shocking, Spooky and Terrifying!
