Teacher in Charge:

This course is designed for learners who need support developing their reading and writing skills. We will explore story-telling, looking at how stories help us to better understand who we are and where we belong. We will begin with powerful cultural myths and legends from Aotearoa/New Zealand and other countries before moving on to discovering how these can be developed. We will finish with the creation of a personal legend. 

  • How are myths and legends part of our identity?
