TEACHING SEQUENCE
WEEK

ACTIVITY
Exploring the context of literature: The first chapter describes the setting of both the

brothers house and the imaginary land in which they live. Use this information to draw a
map of the country, or a plan of their house. Compare and contrast to other students
drawings, discussing how personal experience and inter-textual links might have influenced
their drawings. ACELT1602
What could a red wind be? Write a description of one and read it to the class. Engage in a
series of freeze frame drama activities where: you see the red wind coming, it starts up, it is
overhead and then it leaves. Tap in to find out how students feel at each point. ACELT1613

Examining literature: Bily and Zluty are very different characters. Use a retrieval chart on
an interactive whiteboard to record how they think and feel about a range of activities and
events that occur in the first section of the book. Why do you think the author has focused
on their differences? ACELT1605

How have Bily and Zluty changed throughout the course of the book? Brainstorm adjectives
and phrases around scanned in pictures of each character for both the beginning of the
book and the end of the book. Whose viewpoint are we adopting when we identify these
changes? ACELT1610

Responding to literature: There are unsolved mysteries throughout the book (for
example. the metal pieces, the egg, the crater in the forest, the voices). Jointly create a list

of these then, in pairs, brainstorm explanations for them. Why do you think the author
included these mysteries? ACELT1620
Do you like the fact that the book finished without a resolution? Why, or why not? What
other endings could the author have chosen? ACELT1609

Creating literature: The book ended abruptly with the brothers and the Monster setting
out West. Write the next chapter to show what might happen to them on their
journey. ACELT1612
Create a website about their land, including all the information found in the book and adding
more from your own imagination. ACELY1717

Examining text structure and cohesion (including punctuation): Use visual literacy
skills to decode the cover and predict the story. Who might the two characters at the bottom
left be? What might be their relationship to the cat? ACELY1702

(Assessment)
Examining text structure and cohesion (including punctuation): The narrative has a
long orientation and complication, then a small resolution followed by another complication.
Why do you think the author structured the text in this way? How does each section engage
the reader? ACELA1518
What future predications are there in the book and how do they act as devices to move the

plot onwards? ACELA1490

Examining grammar and vocabulary: The author manages to create an imaginary

List of nouns

world using everyday words. Examine one section of the book (for example, the chapter
about their house, or the cave) and create noun word wall. How does putting these nouns
together create a new world? ACELA1512
