English - Survival of the Fittest
Teacher in Charge: Mrs D. Northern
This course is for students who enjoy apocalyptic or other texts which involve the need for survival. You will learn how the creators of these texts develop their characterisation and situations in such a way that we feel involved in the character's predicament. Classes will involve exploring a range of apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic literature and possibly texts based on other situations that require characters to fight for survival. This could include events such as environmental or man-made disasters, a pandemic, or a zombie plague. You will look at what it takes to survive and adapt in such situations. There will be opportunities to study and analyse a range of written and visual texts that will develop your thinking and writing skills.
