Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. PETERS
Community & Society
In this English course, you will explore how to develop a personal voice and express this, centred around issues where you have something to say. We will explore great orators and how they got people to listen to what they had to say, and the consequences of this, how one person can make a difference, as well as briefly looking at how people can express their opinion in written form (letter writing and column writing). We will also look at how podcasts can be used to get a message to a wide audience, and what effective podcasts do. Students will apply this in the creation of a podcast episode that develops their own stance on an issue of their choice, which will contribute to the class’s podcast series.
