Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. PETERS

Critical Thinking

In this English course we will explore the qualities present in heroes and heroines in literature.  We will begin by looking at a range of both historical and contemporary heroes and heroines.  These will include mythical heroes and heroines, as well as ones more familiar to students, such as some of those from graphic novels and the films based on those.  You will apply this to choose your own literary hero to study and use as inspiration to create a text on. You will call upon your own interests and talents to decide on the text type you produce.
