13ENG

NCEA Level 3 English

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs H. George

English

Prerequisite: A total of at least 12 credits in Level 2 English, either from 12ENE or 12ENG. You MUST also have gained UE Literacy at Level 2 (5 Writing and 5 Reading credits.) Entry is at the discretion of the HOD English and is contingent on demonstrated application and commitment to the subject.

13ENG - Year 13 English is literally a life changing, horizons broadening course that grows skills essential for study in what ever field, at Tertiary level. You will grow in your ability to develop a thesis, use secondary critical texts and teach your peers tutorial style, which sets you up for the rigour of University study in an undergraduate course. The best bit is that we read literature and watch films that students time and time again come back and say, "that impacted me and challenged me like nothing I've ever read before."  Finally, you get to challenge and argue, to critique and philosophise, while testing world-views against your own. What is the purpose of literature? Is there a common "human condition?" How might the way I see the world differ to the way others see it? Who are we behind closed doors? What does God think about it all? Soooo many questions, so little time, so much fun!

English is often perceived to be difficult at Level 3 because it is felt to be "subjective."  Level 3 English results tell a different story - it does not appear to be difficult to do exceptionally well if you are a diligent student. Level 3 English students consistently perform higher than their expectations, and they always find this subject helps their clarity of expression in other curriculum areas.  The very idea of a subject being "subjective" is in itself subjective - there are some very objective and concrete building blocks in the assessment of Level 3 standards, and it is important to grow in confidence in backing yourself, your opinions, and your ability to exemplify and prove your thesis. Learning should involve taking a risk now and then; being courageous and intellectually curious is the way God designed you to be. 

Please come and talk to the HOD, Mrs George to find out more.
