ENG201

Level 2 English

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss T. Palmer

The NCEA Level 2 English General course is aimed at students who have achieved sound results in Level 1 English and wish to pursue their studies of literature, film and language. Students will be exposed to a range of texts and genres, develop a writing portfolio and focus on comprehensive analysis skills.  Most classroom teachers will use the Connections across texts assessment as compulsory, and then allow students to self-select other optional standards if necessary. Students wishing to take this course will also continuously be developing a crafted portfolio of writing over the course of the year. This portfolio will be assessed in Semester 2. Students should have completed Level 1 English to a satisfactory standard, including the external exam.
