Worlds united is part of the unit Worlds, and is also an independent resource that can be used as an ideal introduction to the area of study for students in years 9 or 10. Worlds united explores the ways worlds are drawn together, sharing common goals and actions in the experiences of everyday life. It has activities and tasks using a range of texts (computer game cover, feature article, poem), with information about how to explore, examine and analyse texts linked to a concept. It includes help with developing a related text folio, a suggested related texts list, essay writing models and scaffolds.
