Year 8: Heroes and Villains

Posted: June 3, 2016

Y8 students had fun bringing a hero or villain of their own creation to life. In an English Language and Literature unit that focuses on characterisation of both real world and fictional heroes and villains, students used their creative talents to invent their own heroic or villainous character. In this unit, students inquired into a range of texts from fairy tales and graphic novels to news reports and history texts to explore the ways in which the binary of hero and villain is imagined and represented in popular culture.
