This beginner text is about a young man who receives a mysterious phone call that leads him to different places.
The Quirky comics video texts support the teaching of 'Understanding texts' outcomes in the Modern Languages K-10 Syllabus. This can be done in many ways, including:
- Students can use the provided transcripts to read the stories aloud and record themselves perform the stories as plays.
- They can summarise, sequence, extend and change the beginning or ending of the stories.
- They can write profiles of the characters and then put them in different situations.
The texts can also lead to communicative 'Interacting' or 'Creating texts' tasks, such as, telling a nurse why you don’t feel well or writing an invitation to a birthday party.
