FACE your fears

During the last few weeks the students from 5CME/5DME worked on a portfolio about the young adult novel FACE by the British author Benjamin Zephaniah.

The novel deals with Martin, a 15-year-old boy living in East End London together with his friends Natalie, Matthew and Mark. One hot summer holiday night, the teenagers go out, when Matthew and Mark become involved in a tragic car accident. This incident changes Martin’s life forever due to the fact that his face is burnt.

On the basis of the novel the students not only discussed the most important topics, such as multicultural London, friendship, acceptance or facial deformities in class, but also through working intensely on several creative tasks via their portfolio. All of the students handed in amazing ideas.

Some of the best works can be seen below.
