Senior Minglish - Reading!
Link to Course Overview
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 and 3) 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.
We will start the year by studying a written text together - the class will choose from a range of texts which we will sample. We'll start with some Ted Chiang short stories!
Disclaimer 1: If you haven't yet completed any standards at level 1 in Media Studies or English, then this course is not for you! Refer to my Minglish class in Red if that's the case.
Disclaimer 2: This'll largely be a device-free class. I have pretty high expectations when it comes to engagement and respect for the learning of others. :)
