Limitations and Possibilities – A Fine Line Between Success and Chaos

  • Emma Agius


What I designed for the students was a creating and presenting unit. It aimed to have them research a current media issue and respond with a persuasive writing piece.

This was to help them incorporate appropriate formats and language features in their writing.
