this focus, students explore the ways in which texts depict physical
journeys and their impact. Physical
journeys involve different types of obstacles
and movement to new places. They provide opportunities for travellers
to extend themselves physically, intellectually and emotionally
as they respond to challenges and learn more about themselves
and the world around them. Students examine the underlying assumptions
about these physical journeys and consider the power of the
physical journey to challenge their thinking.
In their responding and composing, students reflect on the ways
these physical journeys
broaden their understanding of the world and themselves.
