Level 2 & 3 Preparation for UE Literacy - English Language
Teacher in Charge: Ms K. Curran
This course provides the opportunity for international and migrant students to achieve the literacy requirements for Level 1 NCEA with the three literacy Unit Standards. All 3 standards must be achieved to gain Level One Literacy, and all work generated in class is assessed internally over the year.
For those students that are either working well or who have already achieved Level One Literacy, there is also the opportunity to attempt other English Language Unit Standards (at the discretion of the teacher) at Levels 2 & 3 for extra credits. This is in order to strengthen the language skills needed for Level Two University Entrance Literacy. There are a mix of different standards for different skills: Listening, Reading, Writing and Presenting a speech.
The emphasis on this course is on communication in English and requires the student to focus on improving reading, speaking and listening skills, writing responses to texts, essays and other practical texts in preparation for Level Two Literacy.
