You are to deliver a multimedia presentation to the class on the following topic.
“It is through the stories the characters tell about their lives that we learn the true meaning of Walking in Someone Else’s Shoes. Some have a powerful voice, some whisper from the margins, but they all have an impact on us.”
Choose the character from either To Kill A Mockingbird or Rabbit Proof Fence that you think most effectively explores and develops this idea. Explore how their story teaches us empathy. Compare this character to at least one character from the other text as well as examples from I Have A Dream that reinforce these ideas. Analyse how the composers have used textual forms and features (techniques) to create these characters and tell these stories.
The presentation is to be 4 minutes. It may be in any multimedia you like. You need to effectively represent your ideas and engage your audience.
The presentation is to be 4 minutes in duration. (3.5 mins minimum and 4.5 mins maximum)
You are to be well presented, organized and speak clearly and effectively as you deliver your presentation.
You may interact with the class if you feel this would enrich your presentation.
You are to organize technology yourself – use of the projector, speaker, laptop or props are to be well organized in advance and ready to go on the day.
