Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs I. Jennings

What will I learn and how will I learn?
This course focuses on giving students the opportunity to gain the English criteria for university entry that they did not gain in Level 2 previously. Reading and writing are the major components of the course. This is a second chance course for students to gain those necessary credits.

They will learn:

●    how to write confidently in a range of styles to develop and sustain their ideas
●    how language features are used to both craft writing and manipulate an audience
●    how to craft their writing
●    how to explore and articulate their ideas verbally through speeches, presentations and debates
●    how to closely read and analyse moving visual texts and other literature
●    how to use processes and structures to understand and respond to surface level and deeper ideas within texts
●    why and how to use accurate and appropriate language in a range of situations and for different audiences.

Conditions of Assessment
NCEA internal assessments allow a flexible approach to the collection of achievement evidence. Therefore, assessment conditions will vary from in class tasks, under teacher supervision, to ongoing assessment work completed at home. All assessments will be monitored by the subject teacher to ensure authenticity of student work. Specific assessment conditions will be provided for individual achievement standards.

Submitting Internal Assessment
All internal assessments are to be submitted by specified due dates. These will be available in 2020.

Resubmission and Further Assessment Opportunities
Resubmissions can only be offered once and only when small errors or omissions need to be corrected in their work in a short period of time. There is no further teaching available.  Further assessment opportunities are not available in every standard.
