“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
Working in teams of 3-4, you are going to develop a manifesto for our Language and Literature course. This manifesto must reflect the objectives of the course, and highlight the ‘real world’ applications for these objectives. Specifically you should focus on at least one objective from parts one and two, and another objective from parts three and four.
You can look at the specific objectives for parts one and two HERE
You can look at the specific objectives for parts two and three HERE
Your team must also be able to explain how the manifesto’s structure has been inspired by one of our seven examples. The collection of examples is available to you here.
Your FOA should discuss how your findings allowed you insight in designing your own manifesto. The guide to exploring each manifesto is available for you here.
How will we be assessed? FOAFrienglish
