Level 3 English Literature

13ENGL
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs C. Wright


Level 3 English Literature encourages students to follow their own reading and viewing interests, particularly in regards to the internal assessment components of the course.  If you are interested in learning how and why we read texts (be that novel/play/film/poetry), if you engage in rich discussions about big issues and why these matter, and if you enjoy reading and/or watching texts, this course will suit you.  

There is a significant focus on evaluation and independent student voice in this course, so it is best suited for students with a particular strength in writing and oral presentation skills. It is not recommended that students from 12LITS take this course.
