Year 12 Classics/History 02
Teacher in Charge: N. Wright
If you are interested in Classics and History but are not so keen on reading and writing, this course is for you. This is an 02 option, so if you have chosen 12ENG02 for 2021, then this will suit you.
This is an integrated Classics and History course which is internal assessed (this means you will not sit an exam). This is for students who require a slower pace of learning and need assistance with their reading and writing. The structure of this course allows for you to spend longer focusing on your literacy skills which are needed to complete the internals.
Students can choose which internals to complete. There are 4 available with a combined total of 19 credits. All credits are UE literacy credits. Students who have high confidence in their reading and writing skills are recommended to choose 12CLA and 12HIS. Please talk to Miss Wright in room 21, Ms Kuitert in room 20, Miss Frew room 26 or Mrs Therkleson in the Deans room if you need help in deciding which course to take for 2021.
