Hazard: Narrative Writing

Age: Older Teens & Adults

The song “HAZARD” can be used here to engage students into a Narrative Writing task. First, they are introduced to some vocabulary. Then, they listen to the song (and watch the video) and discuss what may have happened to the girl. When the video ends, all we know is that she was killed but we don’t know who did it. All is left for us is speculate and make assumptions. However, students will write a narrative with an introduction, a development and an end to the story, revealing who killed the girl. In the end, you can collect all the stories and put them together to make a digital book. You can also have a contest and award the best story.
