Freeze-frames These are tableaux where it is literally as though the film has been frozen. They are used to explore a specific incident or event. e. unmoving) scene to represent characters at a significant moment in a story. They can be used on their own or as a sequence to build up a story. The talk that goes into making the tableau gives children a chance to try out and develop ideas. A simple version of this was described earlier when children were asked to make a statue of the rainbow bear.
Having no ideas is obviously unhelpful but having too many ideas and no notion of how to craft those ideas together is just as unhelpful. How can you get a balance between helping children with ideas and the risk of taking away their creativity? Supporting children in developing ideas for the content of their writing helps all children. However, it can be particularly helpful for children for whom English is not their first language. Not only will it help them sort out their ideas but talk with a first-language English speaker can extend the additional language speaker’s English vocabulary and help develop understanding of the new culture.
Perera (1984) observed that a differential gap between speech and writing exists for different language users: ‘although all children have to alter their language significantly as they move from casual speech to formal writing, those whose oral language differs markedly from Standard English will have a particularly demanding adjustment to make’ (1984: 213). Middle-class first language speakers are advantaged from the outset. Kress notes that: the structure of the spoken form of their [middle class] dialects is very strongly influenced by the structures of writing.
