Further information: 

In this lesson, the learners look at adventure film posters, and from these they imagine and narrate the entire plot of the film. The lesson shows learners how to explain the plot of the story following a situation-problem-solution model, and encourages them to build longer sentences. The sample also shows the review activity which the learners are asked to do after writing. The teacher's notes for this lesson are on the page Pen Pictures Teacher's Books.
