CONTEXT FOR THE TASK
In this module, students explore a range of narratives from the past and the contemporary era that illuminate and convey ideas, attitudes and values. They consider the powerful role of stories and storytelling as a feature of narrative in past and present societies, as a way of connecting people within and across cultures, communities and historical eras; inspiring change or consolidating stability; revealing, affirming or questioning cultural practices; sharing collective or individual experiences; or celebrating aesthetic achievement. Students deepen their understanding of how narrative shapes meaning in a range of modes, media and forms, and how it influences the way that individuals and communities understand and represent themselves.
TASK RUBRIC
You will be examined on your ability to: explore a range of narratives from the past and the contemporary era that illuminate and convey ideas, attitudes and values. consider the powerful role of stories and storytelling as a feature of narrative in past and present societies, as a way of connecting people within and across cultures, communities and historical eras; inspiring change or consolidating stability; revealing, affirming or questioning cultural practices; sharing collective or individual experiences; or celebrating aesthetic achievement. analyse and evaluate one or more print, digital and/or multimodal texts to explore how narratives are shaped by the context and values of composers and responders alike. investigate how narratives can be appropriated, reimagined or reconceptualised for new audiences. investigate how an authors use of textual structures, language and stylistic features are crafted for particular purposes, audiences and effects. examine conventions of narrative, for example setting, voice, point of view, imagery and characterisation and analyse how these are used to shape meaning.
TASK DESCRIPTION/DIRECTIONS
Nature of the task: Multimodal Presentation, prepare a mini lecture on the following question: Explore and evaluate how Iagos manipulation of Othello in both Othello by William Shakespeare and the film adaptation of Othello directed by Oliver Parker reflects imaginative rehearsals as contemporary audience through story telling. Present your mini lecture of 10 to 12 minutes using a medium of your choice, such as Ted Talk, Keynote, PowerPoint, Prezi, iMovie or other appropriate tools. Audio recordings must be included to accompany the visuals used in the multimodal presentation. In your mini lecture, you should explore how narratives shape our understanding and responses through evidence and features from Othello by William Shakespeare, and the film adaptation of Othello directed by Oliver Parker (1995) You MUST analyse the protagonist and antagonist (Othello and Iago) as imaginative rehearsals through storytelling of the play and movie and analyse ONE other female character. In your response, you should consider: the ways in which Iago manipulates Othello as imaginative rehearsals of the contemporary world. the ways in which Othello by William Shakespeare represents a narrative through storytelling that shapes our world. how the reading audiences are engaged with imaginative rehearsals through story telling in Othello by William Shakespeare as compared to the film adaptation of Othello directed by Oliver Parker. (1995) how relationships through Iagos manipulation of Othello as imaginative rehearsals are developed and destroyed within Othello by William Shakespeare and the adaptation of Othello directed by Oliver Parker. (1995) what manipulative relationships as imaginative rehearsals in both texts depict the concepts and values of both the texts. how the characters manipulations as imaginative rehearsals in a narrative reflect attitudes and values of the contemporary era through storytelling. how manipulative imaginative rehearsals may be portrayed similarly or differently in the play and in the film. what manipulative imaginative rehearsals in both texts mirror contemporary values and attitudes. how the characters actions and situations reflect a rehearsal for human stories in reality. how the context of both texts influences the responder and the contemporary audience to relate to the human stories in the narratives. how the newer text is an adaptation/appropriation/re-imagination of the older text through imaginative rehearsals and storytelling.
