What will I learn?

Semester One:

Students will explore a range of texts and text-types to broaden their understanding of a topic and improve reading ability. In groups, students will collaborate to investigate a ’Community Action Project’ within their local community and produce a proposal to address the issue. This proposal will combine written materials (such as a brochure or magazine) and oral communication (such as a video or live presentation).

Semester Two:

Students will explore a range of literature and film to broaden their understanding of author’s and director’s craft, and develop their analytical and creative skills. In groups, students will create a ‘Community Entertainment Package’ for a specific target audience within their local region. This will comprise an anthology of written pieces (such as short stories, film scripts, and film reviews) and a short film production (such as an animation or acted performance).
