Context is everything. Knowing the background to a piece of writing can completely alter how you perceive it. In this class, students will have an introduction to the historical and political context of Animal Farm and will examine why George Orwell chose specific animals to represent historical figures and ideas. They will be introduced to the events of the Russian Revolution and how Orwell uses an allegory to depict his political view.
This is a great class is aimed at students in Years 7 - 11 to see how the context of any piece of writing is integral in order to truly understand the piece of work.
