NCEA Level 2 English Extension
Teacher in Charge: M. Clark
This course covers similar material to what students have studied in English in previous years: the study of literature (such as novels, poetry, short story, film) and unfamiliar texts and optional speeches. Students will also use information literacy skills to write a report. .
This year, students can continue earning credits for their qualifications. In English, we are offering up to 8 achievement standards - 5 of which are internally assessed and 3 standards which are assessed in an exam at the end of the year.
The goals of this course are to gain University Entrance Literacy and at least 14 credits towards achieving L2 NCEA. Students will develop the knowledge and skills needed to communicate effectively through creating visual, verbal and written texts. They will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to understand and analyse visual, verbal and oral texts.
This course leads to a University Entrance approved subject.
