English SBA - The Plan of Investigation
- What is your chosen theme and sub-topic?
- Why did you choose this issue/topic/theme?
- What are the expected benefits to you as a student of English? Consider how it will impact your vocabulary, knowledge, research skills, discussions and other aspects of your performance in English.
- How do you plan to collect relevant information on your issue/topic/theme and use specific English skills to analyse the pieces? Overall, this section gives an overview of the general direction the SBA will take. Once you are finished with your plan of investigation, then you should start writing your reflections.
My group and I have chosen the theme skin bleaching. I will be focusing on: The negative effects of skin bleaching because I would like to know more about its negative effects, so I can educate my friends and family about the dangers of this practice, so they can avoid doing it. Engaging in this research will build my vocabulary because I will encounter different words and terms during my research. My written expression and comprehension skills will also improve.
I intend to gather information for my topic by visiting the library and browsing the internet for articles, poems and pictures on my topic and consulting YouTube for potential videos. I aim to use an online article, a picture and a YouTube video that show the effects of skin bleaching for my pieces. These pieces will be further analysed by identifying the writer’s techniques, devices and evaluating how these are used to achieve the purpose of the pieces. All this will be done to see how the pieces contribute to the overall theme and my sub-topic.
