English - On a High Note - A

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. PETERS

Critical Thinking

In this English course, you will explore the power of music and the way in which lyrics are created. You will apply this to understanding how music impacts lives from a cultural/societal perspective (e.g. songs that tell a political story e.g. Parihaka by Tim Finn and Herbs). You will also apply your learning to the development of your own song lyrics. You  may apply this to entering National Song Lyric competitions and/or recording your lyrics as an extension of your learning.
