Year 10 Smashbook

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: K. Urbahn

This course will capitalise on the popular activity of smashbooking. Smashbooking is a vibrant and less structured form of scrapbooking. Students will be taken through the ‘art’ of smashbooking, a way of compiling and archiving their life. Sites such as Pinterest will be useful in providing inspiration for smashbooking techniques. Students will be provided with a visual diary that they will develop into their own personal smashbook. The focus will be on journalling their life, and developing pieces of creative writing along various themes. All of this writing will form the basis for their smashbook entries. It is envisaged that the course will also involve challenges - whole class writing challenges that students will be given a set period of time to develop, with the intention of being included in their smashbook. Over the course of this option, their smashbook will evolve into a personal log of students' learning while playing with words, textures, and images.
