Year 11 English
In 11 English, students will explore their own identity and how this is shaped by their experiences, their whānau and the people and environment around them. They will delve into what it means to be a teenager in the 21st century in Aotearoa and students will be exposed to a range of (mostly) New Zealand literature in all its forms, reading and viewing texts to help develop their analytical skills. This course encourages students to think about texts as windows or mirrors. They will use critical thinking skills as they unpack and analyse the ideas within a range of texts. Students will explore different forms of writing and learn how to target particular audiences in an effective way. Students will also consider the power of words- how language is used to manipulate, persuade and educate us.
