I Am (Parts 1 and 2)
From Delphi the Dreamer


Delphi had made the mistake of making a deal with a Demon in her dream – to name something that is, without doubt, real, or lose her soul.  The time has now come for Delphi to give her answer, but all she has in her mind are the echo of words: Get rid of everything that you can doubt – and find what you have left.  But once Delphi has rejected everything she thought she knew, what could there be?  In this mind-blowing two-part finale to Delphi the Dreamer, Delphi takes on Descartes’ famous assertion of ‘I think, therefore I am’.  But what does this truly mean?  And who exactly is she?

This download consists of the I Am (Part 1) and I Am (Part 2) enquiries from Delphi the Dreamer.


I Am (Part 1) serves as the first part of Delphi the Dreamer's conclusion, and is written to be an exciting storytelling experience in itself.  The section where Delphi dismantles the world around her is intended to be a surprise for the children, and if presented on an interactive whiteboard or screen, should look like Delphi is ripping the pictures to bits.  This systematic rejection of anything that can be doubted is effectively a dramatic retelling of Descartes’ Meditations.  This sequence leads her to finally confront the Demon and win her wager by using the infamous ‘I think, therefore I am’ argument to prove that she herself exists as a thinking thing.  The previous chapters and sentence stems prepare both Delphi and the children to understand this argument, and the learning of this session is focused around understanding the logic of this assertion.


I Am (Part 2) can be taught over one or two lessons depending on the amount of assessment desired.  This story is a unique piece of storytelling, where Delphi will appear to come to life and speak directly to you as the Narrator, and to the children.  This can be done either through the audio recordings (which will be available soon) or the speech bubbles on the slideshow.  This requires a bit of preparation, even rehearsal, but should create a memorable conclusion to the story!  This chapter also gives children a chance to summarise the learning from the story as a whole.  There are a range of different activities that can be completed off the back of this chapter, so it is worth planning ahead and deciding what you are going to complete in the time you have available.  Whatever you choose, you will be able to capture evidence of the children’s learning across the scheme of work.
