Transcript of Values, Attitudes and Ideas - Yr 10 English

We All Have Our Opinions
The world we live in is guided by spoken and unspoken rules. Many of them were already in place before you were born.

List down three basic rules of our society.

Now write down, beside each, what tends to happen when those rules are broken.

Our values are the things we hold dear.

Values are the priorities a character holds. They are reflected in actions and words. In other words, it’s what they hold so dear that it affects whether or not they can agree with society's ideas.

" He uses connotative language when he refers to the Defendant as "
" and "
what he is
." What does tell us about society's ideas about race and poverty at the time?

Remember to use the word

Sometimes ideas conflict. One idea society holds in the play is that
