How about the play Away by Michael Gow?
I am studying this currently for my prelims..
It encompasses ideals from A Midsummer Nights Dream, The Tempest, King Lear and The Twelfth Night.
It's all about change in self.

What I want to know is if anyone else is currently studying Away? It seems like my schools the only one T_T

I need a non-fiction change related text and a short story.
And we can't use any that we studied in class so that ruled out using Sky High as a short story. :bomb:

non fiction: any biographies or autobiographies on someone as they are written about the change they went through
short story: any fairytale or for a more sophisticated text anything by oscar wilde

  • Sk8er Boi - Avril Lavinge (Song lyrics)
  • Losing It - Lizzie Wilcock (Novel)
  • A Change of Perspective - Ruth Gillis (Poem)
  • Sorority Boys (Film)
  • And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda - Eric Bogle (Song lyrics)
& got 28/30.

Green Eggs & Ham by Dr Suess is a good children's book for this topic.

The movie Pleasantville is a really good one for Changing Self. We were doing it last term.

Just watched Secrets&Lies...:sleep:
We're doing Changing Self at the moment, and our teacher specifically ruled out any films.
Which rules out many of my original choices :(

So, any suggestions for non-film texts?
...perhaps a biography I could get my hands on easily and be read by next Friday? :uhoh:
