English is the study, use and enjoyment of the English language and its literature, communicated orally, visually, and in writing, for a range of purposes and audiences and in a variety of text forms. Learning English encompasses learning the language, learning through the language, and learning about the language. Understanding, using and creating oral, written and visual texts of increasing complexity is at the heart of English teaching and learning. By engaging with text-based activities, students become increasingly skilled and sophisticated speakers and listeners, writers and readers, creators and viewers.
In English, students use a range of resources and technology to work independently or collaboratively to develop their ability to make meaning from texts they read and view and to create meaning in texts they produce.
By studying senior English, students continue to develop their skills to be effective oral, written, and visual communicators who are able to think critically and in depth. They will have opportunities to make and create meaning from a range of texts. Courses are structured to meet the learning needs of our students.
