NCEA Level 2 English - On Top of Their Game
Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. PETERS
In this English course, students will explore the influence of sport and competition on individuals and society. They will also look at what it takes to get to the top of one’s game. This will be examined through a range of texts (visual/written/oral). Students will also get to explore their own opinions and points of view on the impact of sport. Learning in this English course will be explored through both making meaning of a range of texts, as well as creating meaning to express new ideas in a range of forms (e.g. writing, oral presentations, static images etc).
Students who take On Top of their Game will most likely be interested in sports and competition, and will be interested in sport-genre texts (books, films, short stories etc).
Successful completion of this Level Two English course can lead on to any Level Three English course in 2022.
In this course a range of standards, internal and external, will be offered, and what is offered will be personalised where appropriate to meet the interests and needs of individual students.
