This course will build on learning from Year 10. Through the study of written and visual texts, students will develop in their appreciation of literature by growing in their understanding of current issues and wider themes that are important in today’s society. They will also develop in their use and understanding of language through producing both creative and formal pieces of writing. Students can ensure this program best suits their needs by selecting to be assessed through internal assessment only, or through a combination of internal and external assessments. Students will do a selection of standards from the range offered, but must enter into a minimum of 18 credits each year.
