7 STAGE OF GRIEVING &
THE LONGEST MEMORY

UNIT 4: READING & COMPARING TEXTS

Scenes and extracts from 7 Stages of Grieving and The Longest Memory are woven into a performance that enables students to enrich their understanding of the ideas, issues and themes of both texts. 

Both texts present multiple perspectives of grief, misunderstanding and injustice and explore how the trauma of loss, pain and death effect individuals and communities. In addition to other key ideas we compare and contrast how strength and resilience in the face of oppression can lead to a more liberating and inclusive future.

In a commitment to the ongoing development of a uniquely modern Australian voice, Complete Works is pleased to enable a platform for Indigenous stories to be told and performed by Indigenous actors.

It helped to very clearly define both the similarities and differences between the two
books, making it easier for us to analyse and compare the two texts. The Q&A also helped to further enhance our understanding of the themes.
