Abstract

Students learn about ordinary people who meet challenges and overcome adversity to lead extraordinary lives, often crossing boundaries of race, borders, culture and education. They read and view a range of multimodal texts and learn about the structure and language features of informative/explanatory texts before writing a biography about someone who has "crossed a boundary".
