Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms R. Hutchinson

The Year 10 English course is the second year of the two year junior programme, building on their literacy and communication skills. Students will read widely, write across a variety of genres and text types, analyse film/visual texts, and develop their competency in speaking in front of an audience through Shakespearean drama and prepared speech (TED Talks).

The course focuses on developing students' reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, preparing them for NCEA Level One English. Student success is targeted through the use of E-Asttle data, exam and test results from the Year 9 course. Students work towards self-selected goals to help maintain focus and self-motivation throughout the year.
