Writing Exercise on 'Community'

Being famous for something often enhances some people’s sense of community. For example, today we passed through Julia Creek that had a welcome sign that read -

“Welcome to Julia Creek, home of the Fat Tailed Dunnart.”

Fat Tailed Dunnarts are marsupials that look a bit like a large possum. We’ve seen a few – flat on the road I might add.

Suggested learning activities:
1. Write a short piece on why your local community is unique, explaining your answer. Create a welcome sign for the town that reads similar to the one above for Julia Creek, except including how your town is unique.

2. Write a short critique on whether or not you think having a welcome sign for a town is important for the community. Explain your answer, giving reasons where possible.
