NCEA Level 2 English - It's All Write

12ENG4
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. PETERS

In this English course, students will explore a range of different writing genres, through studying others’ work. This will include looking at how to write for different audiences and purposes, how to shape writing to meet the needs of text type, audience and purpose, as well as how to effectively proofread and edit work. A six credit Writing Portfolio will form a foundation of this course. Learning in this English course will be explored through both making meaning of a range of target texts and/or authors, 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 It’s all write will most likely be interested in exploring how authors write and why they do what they do, and also how to re-create this in student’s own writing. 

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. There will be a minimum of 18 credits on offer, and at least 4 credits will be from an externally assessed standard. Potential standards that will be focused on in this course are listed.
