ENG8

English - General - NCEA Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Strother

This course requires an ability to construct a critical argument and present it in a logical and structured text.  Students will be required to independently analyse visual text for both internal and external assessment.  Students are also required to present an oral and written folio that develops ideas, supported with evidence, at publication standard.  Although there are opportunities to augment a student's University Entrance literacy requirements, the bulk of these credits should have been acquired in Y12 English.


Course Overview

Term 1
Students will develop an understanding of what makes an auteur and develop a critical understanding of the language of film. Students are expected to write a structured report, making critical connections and judgments based on their understanding of an auteur.

Term 2
Students will select texts at Curriculum Level 8 to explore an umbrella connection and sub-connections. They will identify similarities and differences in how these connections are explored in texts and develop critical conclusions supported by specific evidence.
Students will also augment their understanding of verbal and visual language in order to construct and present an Oral Presentation.

Term 3
The focus in Term 3 is the Writing Folio. Students are expected to craft two pieces of writing at Curriculum Level 8.
