Sports Mania: Level 1 English

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss J. Swney.

The sports world reaches far beyond the field or the court. This course will look at how the culture of professional sports has shaped the way we follow the lives and careers of sports icons and sports media, as we jump into the world of sports writing, commentating, advertising, etc. 

Note - The context of this course is the same as Semester 1, however, you will be completing different standards. This means you CAN take this course in both Semester 1 and 2, and by doing so you will develop an even deeper understanding of the context.
