Classic Novels - Branding

Ms. R Kelly’s TY students have been analysing Advertising this month. TY’s analysed the PBS documentary, The Merchants of Cool.

Students were challenged to re-brand a well-known product in an effort to make it ‘cool’ for teens. They had to come up with a new way to market a dull product and make it attractive to a teen audience.  Fionn, Sadhbh, Emma, Sam and Roisin took on the challenge of Classic novels. Here are their findings and results.

A collection of Voki News reports completed by a group of Second Years from Newbridge College. The pupils were asked to write a brief News Report based on the events from the first four chapters of Lord of the Flies by William Golding. The entire class did a great job and posted below you will find just a selection of their work.

Ms Carey's Class - Group Essay

My lovely 2E English class have just finished reading & studying John Steinbeck’s “Of Mice & Men”. We had discussed on many occasions the theme of loneliness in the novel & how all characters are affected. I divided the class up into groups where they had to plan a paragraph for homework on a particular character or aspect of the novel and how loneliness is depicted.

Each group had to perfect their paragraph, selecting the best points each group member had come up with. Finally they put forward their best combined effort. These paragraphs were presented to the class and together they are a thorough account of this important theme. Hopefully this piece of work will be a helpful tool for revision before the Christmas exams and beyond.
