‘The Curious Incident’ trailer

5 Nov

Generally speaking, my Year 12 students respond better to visual texts than written ones.  Accordingly, I would like to give them an opportunity to become acquainted with their set text, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time through visual means.

Alongside resources on Autism (see, for example, here), I would like to show them the trailer for the stage version of The Curious Incident.  As they watch, I will ask them to make inferences about subject matter, characters, relationships and events.  We will then compare their inferences with the actual content of the text.
