Writers Workshop Using Media – What If You Were In The Middle Of An EarthQuake?

Sia – California Dreamin’ Music From The Movie San Andreas

3/4J today you will decide which character in the Media clip you are going to be. The Lady being rescued or the rescuer. You will write a snapshot as if you were in one of the moments in the clip.

  • Think about your feeling right at that moment.
  • Imagine if you were placed in the situation of being stuck in the middle of an earthquake.
  • Think of the fear and desperation you would have to survive.
  • Look at the setting and your surroundings.
  • What is happening right before your eyes?
  • Use the lyrics of the song to connect you with the clip.

“California Dreamin'”

All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray
I’ve been for a walk on a winter’s day
I’d be safe and warm if I was in L.A
California dreamin’ on such a winter’s day
[x2]

I stopped into a church I passed along the way
Well I got down on my knees and I pretended to pray
You know the preacher liked the cold, he knows I’m gonna stay
California dreamin’ on such a winter’s day

I’d be safe and warm
I’d be safe and warm
I’d be safe and warm
I’d be safe and warm

All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray
I’ve been for a walk on a winter’s day
If I didn’t go, I could leave today
California dreamin’ on such a winter’s day
Oh such a winter’s day
On such a winter’s day
