Course Overview



Students will be guided through the fundamentals of reading, understanding and writing non-fiction texts, learning the importance of audience, purpose, tone, register, style and form. Students will learn how to read and analyse language in non-fiction texts, critiquing choices of the language used in various models spanning an array of interesting topics, with the common theme of human impact. The course will teach students how to draw comparisons between non-fiction texts and their themes. Students will use this knowledge to craft non-fiction texts of their own. During the course, students will prepare an argument in response to the statement 'Humans are amazing?'. This project will enable them to use the skills learned to formulate their own arguments for their own non-fiction text, at the same time as engaging with the key topics explored through the articles read throughout the course - from climate change to refugees and robotic inventions. The stories, themes and people explored in the articles will be evaluated and students will construct their arguments about the positive and negative impacts of humanity. In doing so, students will be able to write about important topics, while learning the importance of writing with passion and purpose. This will also help with oracy and expression.
