Year 7 English

​This term Year 7 English students have been busy studying the life writing genre of biography. Throughout this unit, students explored different types of life writing, analysed language features and made connections to issues presented in various biographies. They have worked very hard on the assessment piece for this unit - a biography of a person who has displayed courage or determination. This topic provided a lot of food for thought and rich discussion as students decided who would be the focus of their writing. They were inspired to write about well-known people including, Sir Edward ‘Weary’ Dunlop, Anne Frank and Cathy Freeman, as well as friends or family members who have shown courage and determination. It has been pleasing to see these biographies evolve through the writing process from the planning stage to the publishing of the final copy. Well done Year 7s.
