Level 2 English - Oral & Visual

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Collins

Level 2 English – Oral & Visual covers a range of learning activities, offering students the opportunity to build their language and critical thinking skills, with a heavier focus on the communication of ideas through visual and oral texts.  

Assessments are taken at a slower pace than in the Classic to Contemporary course. Students have some opportunity to tailor their own assessment programmes, including the mode of assessment in some cases (written,  oral or visual). However, this is still an academic course.  

All assessments are internal, therefore there is no external examination. However, students have the opportunity to opt in to an external examination. Level 2 credits are offered in this course and students will still have the opportunity to gain some of their Level 2 Literacy requirements. 

This course provides some opportunity to meet the literacy requirements for University Entrance.

Recommended Prior Learning

To be accepted for this course students need to have earned Level 1 Literacy and a minimum of 10 credits from Level 1 English, or HOF approval.

Costs

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.
