Students embark on a creative journey exploring the theme of survival and castaway experiences. They prepare for a mock television interview, simulating an account of being stranded on an island. This involves crafting both questions and answers, fostering collaborative learning. The unit offers flexibility in studying a text that aligns with the survival theme, enabling students to express their understanding in various communicative forms. Additionally, students conduct research on a real island within the same climatic zone as their imagined one, further enriching their learning experience. A key task involves crafting a concise, persuasive message to secure rescue, honing their ability to use words effectively and persuasively. This unit enhances literary skills and immerses students in a creative and thought-provoking exploration of survival scenarios.
