English - Other Worlds

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs D. Northern

Creativity and Innovation

This course is for students who enjoy viewing and reading about characters living in other worlds. You will learn how dystopian, fantasy or science -fiction worlds are developed to make them real to their audience; then, how to create your own. Classes will involve the study of texts set in ‘other worlds’ and the characters who live in them. Lessons will look at the techniques used by writers and directors to immerse us to the extent that we feel fear and relief on behalf of the characters we engage with. Through this study you will learn the skills to write about this analysis, as well as create your own narratives.
