Minglish Level 2
In this course, students will study written and visual texts closely, then choose their own assessments from within Media and English (with a focus on NCEA level 2).
Students will be able to select their own English or Media Studies assessment to complete in the latter stages of the term, dependent on where their interests lie and what levels they are most likely to achieve. A list of Media Studies standards can be found here and English standards here.
If you haven't yet completed any standards at level 1 in Media Studies or English, then this course is not for you! But good news: I'm running a similar course in Red for level 1 :)
At this stage, we're going to start our studies by reading a book! It'll be a book about psychological horror, hopefully with a mix of science fiction. I'm thinking Bird Box, Misery, Blindness or Annihilation - but ideally, I'd like the class to decide.
Disclaimer: This'll be a device-free class. We even go so far as to place our phones on the table at the front each lesson! If you simply must be taking selfies, watching TikToks or on instagram, this is not the class for you.
