English Extension - Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. Larsen

English is about developing language skills that help boys understand and communicate with the world around them. This course will develop students' ability to interpret ideas, whether they be written, spoken, or visual, and it will promote the capacity to create meaning. Students will finish this course better prepared for further academic study, and to be critical thinkers.


Course Overview

Term 1
Develop an informed understanding of literature. Students will read a novel, then research what critics have said about it in order to deepen their understanding of the text.
Students will craft their first piece of fluent, coherent writing.

Term 2
Students will improve their grasp on language by engaging in one of the following units: close viewing of visual text, verbal presentation, or make connections across texts.
Students will craft a second piece of fluent, coherent writing.

Term 3
Literature study. Students will critically analyse various aspects of the class text that was read in Term 1, and strengthen their understanding of essay writing.
Students will also critically analyse unfamiliar written texts and may craft a third piece of fluent, coherent writing.

Term 4
Revision of external standards: essay writing and comprehension of unfamiliar texts.
