NCEA Level 1 English Extension

11ENG
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: S. Lassen

The course covers similar material to what students have studied in Years 9 and 10: creative and formal writing, the study of literature (such as novels, poetry, short story, film) and unfamiliar texts and speeches. We offer seven achievement standards - four of which students gain from work they do in class (internally assessed) and three standards which are assessed in an exam at the end of the year.

The goals for this course are to gain literacy at Level 1 and gain at least 14 credits towards achieving Level 1 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 interpret visual, verbal and oral texts.

This course leads to a University Entrance approved subject.
