Telling the Story

 

In the words of William Faulkner, "A writer needs three things, experience, observation, and imagination, any two of which, at times any one of which, can supply the lack of the others."  In this unit, students will explore the truth of Faulkner's words and investigate how story telling is grounded in life experience.   

 

This unit includes the study and viewing of Hamlet, as well as on the literary study of non-fiction stories and the essay. Students will read, hear, and  analyse a variety of essays, reviews, editorials, biographies, and other forms of non-fiction. The culminating activity consists of an argumentative essay, a media work, and a report. As in Units 1 and 2, students continue to examine issues and themes, but also use these activities to provide practice and feedback for the written and oral components in Unit 4.
