Overview

Semester 1, 2015 Humanities Faculty - Canberra College

This introductory unit is particularly designed for those Year 11 students who wish to improve their essay writing skills and the range and quality of their responses to literature in both critical and creative modes.

Apart from studying essay writing techniques (particularly in the argumentative mode) and responding to both current issues and literary texts, students will practise writing for a variety of purposes and audiences. 

In addition they should study at least one novel or prose work, a play and a selection of poems, short stories and visual materials. They will also have opportunities to develop confidence in oral communication in both group and individual activities.
