Year 11 English - The Power of Language

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: M. Northey

How well do you understand the power of language? In this course, students will explore media manipulation, and will be confronted by the influence of advertising and media, and the subliminal messages that they are bombarded with every day. In addition to this, students will also explore how language is used to inspire positive change, through some of history's great orators. By the end of this course, students will have honed their critical thinking skills, and will be equipped to understand the motivations behind the message. Crafting and performing a formal speech is an essential component of this course.
