Today we did 2 exciting things…
- We took up those questions from the other day using the 7-basic plots model
- We did our final prompt for this unit
I thought we could look at something kind of fun which is reimaging pre-existing stories from other perspectives.
We looked at a few examples…
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead tell the story of Hamlet from the point of view of his doomed friends.
Mary Riley was the story of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde told though his assistants eyes
The Hank Scorpio episode of the Simpsons has Homer working for a James Bond villain
Wicked was the story of The Wizard of Oz from the perspective of the witch
Here was the prompt:
Pick a story you already know (kids story, novel, movie, etc) and write a short story form the perspective of somebody other than the protagonist/narrator.
Star Wars from the perspective of Storm Trooper on the Death Star
Snow White from the perspective of one of the seven dwarfs
Finding Nemo from the perspective of that stupid ass turtle
Chose a story and retell it in a different style
