Stage 2 English
Subject Name: English
Level: Stage 2
Learning Area: Stage 2
Recommended Knowledge: C grade or better in two semesters of Stage 1 English.
In English students 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 consider social, cultural, economic, historical and/or political perspectives in texts and their representation of human experience and the world.
Students explore how the purpose of a text is achieved through application of text conventions and stylistic choices to position the audience to respond to ideas and perspectives.
An understanding of purpose, audience and context is applied in students’ own creation of imaginative, interpretive, analytical and persuasive texts that may be written, oral and/or multimodal.
Students have opportunities to reflect on their personal values and those of other people by responding to aesthetic and cultural aspects of texts from the contemporary world, from the past and from Australian and other cultures.
Two units constitute a subject that may be used for an ATAR.
A single unit may be studied to achieve the English requirement for SACE, if not completed in Stage 1.
