The Giant of Thistle Mountain: An ELD Storyline

I adapted this Storyline for ELD from one written by the Global Storyline Project in Glasgow, Scotland. It tells the story of a giant who wants to fit in with the residents of the nearby village. It’s a drama-based Storyline, meaning the drama drives the story. The students participate in the story — and therefore in the drama activities — through the eyes of their village characters (e.g., baker, police officer, etc.). When different incidents occur (for example, when the giant eats all the baker’s cupcakes) the students respond to the incidents by doing a drama activity while role-playing as their village characters. All 10 ELP standards are covered in this ELD Storyline.
