Level 1 English Literature
Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Collins
Level 1 English Literature is an English course aimed specifically at students who enjoy engaging with literature and would like the opportunity to explore this further.
Students will read literature in a range of forms and styles, including Shakespeare, and write in different genres. The course covers a range of learning activities focused on interpreting and communicating ideas. Students will explore language and think critically about language and literature. Tasks include reading, writing, speaking, viewing, researching, and connecting ideas.
Three internal and two external Achievement Standards are offered in this course, with the option of an additional internal standard. This allows students ample opportunity to gain credits.
Learning will be assessed during class time and for homework, as well as the examination in November.

The Board of Trustees has again asked to opt into the Ministry of Education donation scheme. Doing so resulted in the ability to waive student fee donations. Kaiapoi High School aims to deliver quality educational courses over and above those that which is funded by the Ministry. It is likely the School will opt into the donation scheme for 2023, however parental contribution for the costs of trips and activities where participation is optional, and/or components not covered by the Government grant, may be requested. We appreciate the financial support our families make to the School.
