Level 3 English
Teacher to contact with questions: Mr I. Crandell-Tanner
Level 3 English allows students to extend their study of English and deepen their appreciation of literature and language. It builds on the skills developed at Level 2. This course strengthens students' critical thinking and their ability to articulate ideas with precision and clarity. This course will develop a high degree of academic communication skills and strong independent study habits, as well as building empathy and an understanding of different perspectives about our place in the world.
The Level 3 course in 2020 will cover the following topics:
- Reading critically through whakapapa and feminist lenses
- Studying postcolonial poetry of New Zealand and the Pacific
- Reading George Orwell's novel 1984
- Other topics to be decided in consultation with students.
