ENC8

English - Communication - NCEA Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Strother

This course is a combination of NCEA Level 2 & 3 standards, with the aim of achieving at least 12 English credits at NCEA Level 2 & 3.  Students will need to develop a critical understanding of visual texts, as well as exploring the connections between a range of these texts.  There is no opportunity in this course to achieve UE or UE literacy.



Course Overview

Term 1
Connections: an umbrella connection will be established with a focus on two sub-connections. Students will view a range of texts and analyse these, as well as independently selecting text and analysing this. Students will begin to construct a report which will be presented in Term 2.

Term 2
Students will develop their analysis skills with regard to visual language. They will also learn to develop a critical response supported with appropriate and specific evidence.

Term 3
An opportunity is available at the beginning of Term 3 to submit an Oral Presentation at NCEA Level 3. Students will be taught the relevant skills and choose to present or otherwise. Following this, students will develop an understanding of the skills required to research and present their findings in a written report.

Term 4
All research documentation and reports are due early in Term 4.

Recommended Prior Learning

ENC7:  This is the foundation for this course.  The visual strand will have been unpacked and students will have gained the skills and knowledge to navigate the requirements of the ENC8 course.  Students will also have an understanding of research and essay writing.
