Year 9 CORE - English

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: A. Grey

English
All students take English in Years 9 to 12. You will participate in tasks which
are designed to develop your ability both to make meaning (through reading, listening
and viewing) and to create meaning (through writing, speaking and presenting). You will also be
encouraged to make your own choices for personal reading, and to make connections
between the texts you encounter and the world around you. As you progress
through the English programme at each year level, you will gradually develop your ability to
state ideas clearly, to elaborate upon them, to select relevant supporting evidence, and
to analyse the choices made by writers, speakers and film directors. A successful English
student is one who internalises the lessons learned in class to the point where he or she
can use these new skills across a range of subjects and situations.
