Year 13 English (13ENG)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. Botha

The Year 13 English course will further develop student's critical thinking skills in the area of literature appreciation.  Students will have opportunities to develop the ability to respond to a range of literature texts and types.  The course builds on a student's ability to form opinions about texts and to develop critical responses.  Students will complete an in-depth study of at least one film and at least two forms of written text - this might be a novel, a poetry study or a play. These studies will lead to the opportunity to enter up to two written external examinations and learners will also be entered in up to four internal assessments.

It is desired that learners enter Year 13 English with an appreciation for literature - for ideas, characters, symbolism and language in all its forms.
