What should I have already achieved?

What will I learn?
The focus of Year 11 English is to develop an interest in reading. The course will give students the                   required skill to understand, analyse and evaluate a range of text types. We aim to assess the reading             at Level 2 and writing at Level 1. Students will also be given the opportunity to improve collaboration,             strategic planning, and production skills via a Media Studies project in Term 2. the focus for this is to                 increase understanding of the director's craft, which will support students in their preparation for the                 external exams and for those who choose Media Studies at Year 12 and beyond. 

How will this course be assessed?
The course will have internal and external assessments, as above.

Will there be Further Assessment Opportunities (FAO)?
No assessments include a FAO.

Are there any pre-requisites for Level 2 English?
A minimum of 12 credits, including achievement in one writing standard (AS90052 and AS90053) and               achievement in one external (AS90849, AS90850 or AS90851) is required for unconditional admission to         Level 2 English. It is preferred that you have demonstrated a broad base of English skills and achieved:           one internal assessment for reading, one internal assessment for writing, and at least one external                   assessment.

What are the course costs? If suitable opportunities for guest speakers, cinematic viewings or dramatic performances           arise, there may be a cost involved for the trip.
