Year 12 English

9/05/2018
Year 12 English
To begin their last year of high school, Year 12 English students embarked on a journey to deconstruct the influence of culture within literature and texts. Starting over 200 years ago in Regency England, the class studied the classic western novel Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Through analysis of the timeless and often spirited characters, events and themes they examined social and cultural influences on literature. It has been very rewarding to witness their engagement, astonishment and in the end understanding of different cultures. From here, students have been busy exploring social and cultural influences on a range of contemporary non-western narratives, with the aim of writing and presenting a unique narrative that demonstrates their understanding of a chosen culture. Without hesitation the students have enthusiastically and often animatedly used their creative ideas to write narratives inspired by cultures from all around the world. In the coming weeks students will share their hard work and delve into article writing to enhance their writing skills and their understanding of the significance of literature and storytelling.
