The Year 12 students are carrying out some thoughtful work as part of our literacy topic looking at power and conflict within poetry. We are approaching this work looking at different interpretations. These include power and conflict within nature, relationships and identity.
Our research has started by looking at power and conflict involving warfare. Each student has been asked to research some of the main conflicts in the Twentieth Century.
Key questions have been asked: who was the conflict between, when did it take place, what was the cause and how was it resolved? This research led to each class member preparing a short presentation to share their findings.
This work will be developed throughout the rest of the term. The Year 12 students will be analysing poems involving power and conflict to see how we can use language to describe this theme.
