Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss T. Palmer

The NCEA Level 1 English course covers a broad range of content and skills. Each of the curriculum strands (Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening, Viewing and Presenting) are used in teaching programmes. Classroom teachers will usually focus on the Close Viewing or Connections standard as a whole-class assessment earlier in the Semester.  Students will then be encouraged to take ownership of their learning by choosing additional assessment opportunities to suit their needs. Students will also aim to complete a portfolio of writing across the whole year. This course offers the opportunity for merit and excellence results, as well as the opportunity to achieve a subject endorsement in English.  It is aimed at students who are not taking Foundation Literacy.
