Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. PETERS

Critical Thinking

In this English course we will explore traditional myths, legends and fairy tales. Through this we will examine the messages that these convey, question how relevant these are to our world today and how we can expose new audiences to the cultural relevance of our traditional tales. You will apply this to creating your own modern adaptation for a new generation. This will be done through creating their own film concept and script. You may apply this to the production of a trailer for a planned ‘film’ of your own as an extension of your learning. Extension learning may also extend to comparing traditional Classic tales, like Shakespeare's plays, to their modern adaptations.
