Area of Study: The Journey

The new BOS English Stage 6 Prescriptions for the HSC 2004/5 is the basis of the course. For this cycle a new Area of Study: The Journey has been introduced. There are three possible focuses in exploring this concept of the Journey: ‘Physical Journeys’; ‘Imaginative Journeys’; and ‘Inner Journeys’.


Focus: Imaginative Journeys
Through this focus, students explore the ways in which texts depict imaginative journeys. These journeys take us into worlds of imagination, speculation and inspiration. Students explore a range of imaginative journeys, from journeys of intellectual discovery to those of pure imagination. Students examine the underlying assumptions about these journeys and consider the power of the imagination to challenge their thinking. In their responding and composing, students reflect on the ways imaginative journeys broaden their understanding of the world and themselves.
