Level 2 English
Teacher to contact with questions: Mr I. Crandell-Tanner
Level 2 English explores the nature of humanity and the world around us through the appreciation and close reading of film, poetry, and a novel and/or drama script. This course engages and challenges students by examining the techniques used in creating literature, and by analysing how the texts we read and view are relevant to our own lives and to the society we live in. Building on the skills developed in Level 1 English, the Level 2 course continues to foster and develop an enjoyment of literature and the English language. Written and spoken communication skills are developed at a more advanced level as students learn to shape the language and structure of their writing and speaking to particular purposes and audiences.
Key areas of focus in Level 2 English include:
- Advanced writing skills, which apply to academic, business, and creative writing
- Reading for personal learning, growth and enjoyment
- Viewing and analysing film.
The Level 2 English course has flexibility in some areas so that students who may require more time to complete a unit of work are allowed this. Standards assessed will be a selection from the list below.
