English - Survival of the Fittest - A

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. PETERS

Critical Thinking

In this English course, you will explore what it will take to survive and adapt when the world that they live in suddenly changes because of a catastrophic event. This could include apocalyptic events such as environmental or man-made disasters, a pandemic, a zombie plague. You will explore a range of apocalyptic / post -apocalyptic literature . You will study and analyse films, short written texts and a novel, and will develop your thinking and writing skills. You will collaborate with other students to develop a script, storyboard and film trailer/short film. You may also apply this through collaborating with other students on an inquiry into possible end of world scenarios and present your findings on possible plausible scenarios of what could end the world and how could people survive this, as an extension of your learning.
