NCEA Level 2 English Extension

12ENG
Course Description

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.


Recommended Prior Learning

At least 5 out of the 6 Level 1 English Achievement Standards; one of which must be 90052 or 90053 (the writing standards).
