Unit 1 – The Power of A Personal Story

In this unit, we will explore the unique power that literature gives us in terms of understanding the lives of others. In particular, we will see how unique characterisation and the first-person narrator can, arguably, build more empathy and understanding than an objective or factual text. We will read Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time and learn more about the lives of those with autism.
