Activity 1: Read the opening from 'Eric' by Shaun Tan and reflect

Opening

Some years ago we had a foreign exchange student come to live with us. We found it very difficult to pronounce his name correctly, but he didn’t mind. He told us to just call him ‘Eric’. We had repainted the spare room, bought new rugs and furniture and generally made sure everything would be comfortable for him. So I can’t say why it was that Eric chose to sleep and study most of the time in our kitchen pantry. ‘It must be a cultural thing,’ said Mum. ‘As long as he’s happy.’ We started storing food and kitchen things in other cupboards so we wouldn’t disturb him. But sometimes I wondered if Eric was happy; he was so polite that I’m not sure he would have told us if something bothered him. A few times I saw him through the pantry door gap, studying with silent intensity, and imagined what it must be like for him here in our country.

Once you have read the extract, I would like you to think about what you learn about each of the the characters.

Can you list 3 things we learn about the narrator, Mum and Eric?

Activity 2: When did you feel like an outsider?

Next, I would like you to use read the scenarios on the 'When did you feel like an outsider' sheet. I want you to think about if you have felt like an outsider in these situations before. If not, think to a time where you have felt like an outsider.

 

I would like you to write about a time you have felt like an outsider and why you felt like that. I also want you to reflect on how it made you feel at the time.

Activity 3: Listen to the whole story of 'Eric' by Shaun Tan

I would like you to either use the powerpoint below or listen to Ruth Mertten's reading of 'Eric' by Shaun Tan.

After you have read or listened to the story, I would like you to think about the questions below:

  • Did you like or dislike the story? Why?
  • Have you read something similar to it before?
  • Does it remind you of anyone in real life or a situation you have experienced?
  • What patterns can you find in the story?
  • Do you have any questions about the story?
