Course Description

In English students read and view a range of texts, including texts created by Australian authors. In comparing texts students analyse the relationships between language and stylistic features, text types, and contexts.

Recognising and analysing the language and stylistic features and conventions of text types in literary and everyday texts influences interpretation.

Through close study of texts, students explore relationships between content and perspectives and the text and its context.
In the study of English students extend their experience of language and explore their ideas through their own creation of texts, and reading and viewing the texts of others.

Students consider the powerful role that language plays in communication among individuals, groups, organisations, and societies.

There is a focus on ways in which language defines, shapes, and reflects relationships among people.

Students appreciate how clear and effective writing and speaking displays a depth of understanding, engagement, and imagination for a range of purposes, contexts, and audiences.
