Students will work with engaging texts and characters from Disney that have been a part of their childhood, such as ‘The Lion King, ‘Aladdin’, ‘Up’, and many more. Using the wonderful world of Disney, this unit is designed to extend English students in their understanding and development of analytical skills in order to equip them for VCE English studies. Students will be exposed to the variety of skills and writing styles such as analytical analysis, creative writing for a purpose, and comparative text study. Through the study of Disney texts, students will develop a knowledge of characterisation, themes and plot structure, all of which will prepare them for VCE English or VCAL Literacy.
