NCEA Level 2 English (Visual) 201

ENGV201
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: M. Edgecombe

Level 2 English (Visual)

In this course, you will study written and visual literary texts and develop your writing, reading, viewing and speaking skills. A film study will form a significant part of the course. You will also develop your ability to mix words and images effectively, meaning that visual language is a bigger emphasis in this course than in Level 2 English (Literary) and Level 2 English (Tupaia). Learning how to compare and make connections between different texts will be a major part of this course. If you take this course, you will be entered into one external achievement standard, with the option of entering a second also available to you.


Pathway

NCEA Level 3 English 301, NCEA Level 3 Sustainable Projects 301

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

There are no scheduled trips, but opportunities to attend theatrical productions or other events may present themselves from time to time, incurring a small cost. You will need to have an exercise book or folder for using alongside your device.


Recommended Prior Learning
