LA Code: 

('Minglish' is a combination of 'Media' and 'English')

Students will study texts (written and film) through the lens of both Media Studies and English, with a focus on NCEA Level One standards in those areas.

We'll finish off our text study of 'The Long Walk' by Stephen King, then focus on some shorter texts. If new to the class, please make sure you have a copy of the book, and have read at least the first half. Otherwise you'll be very lost.We'll focus on creative script writing, a bit of drawing to create static images, and maybe even some movie making. Next term, we'll move on to visual text analysis.

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.

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.
