During today’s lesson we were introduced to the mysteries of Harris Burdick, learning about his unexplained disappearance from the literary world! We chose one of Burdick’s drawings per pair (using other evidence that had been collected, such as: footprints, compasses, ink splats, keys etc) and created our own evidence boards. Imagining these drawings were an image from a crime scene, we analysed each and every detail within the drawings, suggesting what they could mean/show us. By the end of the lesson, we came up with some fabulous story ideas from the boards we created!
