Writing skills: Responding to a person stimulus image

In this lesson, we will use a stimulus image will start our thinking process and gather some initial ideas. We'll then be looking at developing our understanding of characterisation by examining Kurtz from our text, 'Heart of Darkness', and linking him to various literary models. We'll read a passage from 'Heart of Darkness' as stimulus and then have the opportunity to plan out a response using a photo montage technique.

This quiz includes images that don't have any alt text - please contact your teacher who should be able to help you with an audio description.
