Extension Course 1 - Common Module: Literary Worlds - Elective 5: Intersecting worlds

Elective 5: Intersecting worlds

In this elective, students explore and evaluate how the intersection of human experience and activity with the natural domains of our planet is represented in texts. Students examine how texts represent diverse conceptualisations of nature and our complex relationships with natural worlds. They consider how nature is valued in literature for its beauty, its spiritual or emotional inspiration, or as a resource to be used for practical purposes. They analyse the different ways representations of natural worlds often give voice to diverse individual and collective perspectives and to intense, transformative experiences. Students critically evaluate the implicit or explicit values and assumptions in particular representations of nature and how their own values and assumptions have an impact on making meaning of these representations.

In their responding and composing, they explore, analyse, experiment with and critically evaluate their prescribed texts and other appropriate texts. They write their own imaginative compositions that represent the intersection of human experience and activity with the natural domains of our planet.

In this elective, students are required to study at least three of the prescribed texts (including at least two extended print texts) as well as other texts of their own choosing. At least two related texts must be studied. Texts can be drawn from a range of times, contexts and media and should explore the intersection of human experience and activity with the natural domains of our planet.
