Level 3 English - Classic to Contemporary

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Collins

Recommended Prior Learning

To be accepted for this course students need to have earned Level 2 Literacy and a minimum of 13 credits from Level 2 English, including at least one external standard, or HOF approval.

Level 3 English - Classic to Contemporary requires students to explore language and think critically about a  range of texts, including film. Students will write in a range of styles, complete reading, and viewing assessments, and critically evaluate literature. 

Three internal and two external Achievement Standards are offered in this course. Learning is assessed throughout the year, during class time and for homework, as well as in the examination in November. 

Whilst this course does provide the opportunity to meet the Literacy requirements for University Entrance, students who do not already have the majority of these credits will struggle to succeed in this course.
