Year 9 start their studies with a unit focussing on persuasion. In this unit students learn about different techniques that we can use to be persuasive and practice writing persuasive texts in preparation for NAPLAN. Students continue their students by exploring Aboriginal issues and how these are represented in a range of texts. In addition, students complete a Wide Reading unit where they read a novel of their choice for pleasure. Additionally, students in Year 9 are introduced to Shakespeare, examine the power of graphic novels and explore the concept of future worlds to conclude their Year 9 studies.
