What is Author’s theme?
How does the author connect the audience to their theme? And what is special about the theme of traditional tales? Remember to have literature ready for lesson, in particular, The Rainbow Serpent. The retelling of the story by Dick Roughsey is the one referred to in the video. Further information about The Rainbow Serpent can be found: https://www.aboriginal-art-australia.com/aboriginal-art-library/rainbow-serpent/ Students will also need to have ready their New Author’s Kits.
