LA Code: 

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 :)

Last term, we completed a study of 'Annihilation'. This term, we'll look at a few short stories, and then a few films (and studying these will take aaaages. We do lots of pausing and talking. If this is going to annoy you, steer clear).
I'm thinking (some of these):

10 Cloverfield Lane
The Prestige
The Machinist
Ex Machina

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.
