Case Study: Multi-literacies in the English Curriculum
This is not an essay but it is the closest thing I could compare it too.
Select both a G-rated film (i.e. suitable for showing in a classroom) and a novel that each explore the same theme or issue as the picture book ‘The Peasant Prince’ By Li Cunxin and Anne Spudvilas. Using the film, the novel and the picture book together, develop a literature-based unit of work (around 10 lessons), which focuses on outcomes from the national English curriculum (ACARA 2012). In text references to support using scholarly sources/
Your unit should include the following:
1) a brief summary of the aims of the unit (approx. 200 words)
2) a unit overview encapsulating what is to be taught in each of the ten lessons (approx. 600 words)
3) one detailed lesson which focuses on the explicit teaching of written grammar (and the ways it depicts the theme or issue selected) within the novel (approx. 400 words)
4) one detailed lesson which focuses on the explicit teaching of visual semiotics (and the ways it depicts the theme or issue selected) within the film (approx. 400 words)
5) a description of how your unit lessons cater for diversity (approx. 200 words)
6) a clear indication of how you might evaluate and assess children’s work throughout and at the conclusion of the unit. (approx. 200 words)
7) resources used for the detailed lessons only may be included as appendices.
