Yearly Content

Term 1
Our module-specific Reading to Write classes aim to enrich students with their understanding and confidence in their analytical and expressive skills, empowering them to navigate and utilize language as a tool to construct arguments, question their world and destabilize structure. In this course, students will be provided with numerous learning opportunities to engage with a variety of text types that are rich in their use of techniques and which delve into powerful ideas about culture, morality, time and humanity. Moreover, students will be expected to compose numerous works of their own (both creative and analytical).
Term 2
Our term 2 course offers opportunities for students to thoroughly engage with and examine the role that context plays in shaping a composer's representation of meaning within their text, specifically the attitudes, beliefs, assumptions and morals held within a particular culture or historical era. This will entail investigation into the events, thought processes and socio-cultural temperaments governing a a given era and its collective consciousness. Students will then examine how these texts manifest as engines that carry considerable power to influence the societies that humans inhabit both past and present. That is, we invite students to consider the role of storytelling and narratives throughout time as potent vessels that influence the cultural, political, social, ideological and paradigmatic spheres rotating around within various parts of the world.
Term 3
Our module-specific Critical Study of Literature classes challenge students to consider the relationship between form, context and meaning and how this assists composers in representing their key ideas. This module teaches students the importance of textual integrity and how this textual feature enables literary works to have their timeless quality. Students will be empowered to engage critically with a specific text and are expected to know the scholarly discourse surrounding a text of literary significance to inform their own opinion of what the purpose of the text is. This preliminary module borrows directly from Module B in the year 12 English course, so our program is designed to equip students with the necessary knowledge required to flourish in the HSC.
