Short stories are an effective way to illustrate the key concepts and reading strategies in the HSC Texts and Human Experience module. These short stories can be used to introduce the module, to supplement the prescribed text, as a standby lesson, or as part of an assessment task.

 

Questions ask students to apply concepts from the rubric to the story, and sample answers on separate pages which the teacher may detach for teaching.

 

This character-driven story of two old people attempting a day out despite dementia, 'Day Out', by Rose Hughson, is around 2700 words long and has been used successfully with a senior class (16-18 years).
