NCEA Level 2 English (Visual) 201

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Edgecombe

Recommended Prior Learning

8 credits in Level One English, or at the discretion of the Head of the English Department.

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 if you wish to.
