All across Australia, people are gearing up for the footy Grand Final. Whether you’re footy mad or a rugby nut, the end of the season is full of excitement and anticipation. Bring some finals fever back into the classroom at the start of Term 4 with a Grand Final inspired writing lesson.
Based on the Final Eight System used by both the AFL and the NRL, this lesson involves splitting the class into eight teams which then compete against each other for a place in the Grand Final. Each round references a specific Step and extra credit is given for any examples of Dynamic Dialogue and Show, Don’t Tell.
