English

SACE Credits: 20

Teacher: Mathew D’Aloisio

Stage Two English is a twenty credit (full year) subject designed to give students the opportunity to analyse the interrelationship of author, text and audience, with an emphasis on how language and stylistic features shape ideas and perspectives in a range of contexts.

 

Students explore how the purpose of a text is achieved through the application of text conventions and stylistic choices to position the audience to respond to ideas, perspectives and the representation of the human experience.

 

Students have the opportunity to reflect on their own personal values and will respond to the social and cultural aspects of texts through the analysis and creation of texts.
