NCEA L3 English - Eye in the Sky
Teacher in Charge: Mr A. van der Velden
The title of this course comes from a film by the same name - a thought-provoking film that looks (amongst other things) at the morality of the military using drones - piloted thousands of kilometers away - to kill the enemy.
This course will focus on the concept of morality, with a particular focus on the morality of war - if there is such a thing!
In term 1 we set up the writing portfolio. We will also complete a visual text study, as well as setting up the Connections standard.
The first half of term 2 is taken up with the Connections standard. The second half of the term is taken up with close viewing and a seminar presentation.
The writing portfolio is completed in term 3. We will also be revising for the derived grade exams.
Term 4 will be spent revising for the final exams in November.
