Level 2 UE Literacy - English Language

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms K. Curran

This course is designed for international and migrant students who find it difficult to achieve their full potential in mainstream English.  There is an emphasis on English grammar, vocabulary, paragraph and sentence structure and self-monitoring accuracy. There are up to 14 credits for internal English Achievement Standards which include a writing portfolio, wide reading and a written response to information research.  All work is internally assessed as it is produced over the whole year, with the exception of 2 separate reading assessments for EAP. University Entrance Literacy is 5 reading and 5 writing credits.

The requirements of this course are to: 

  • Write six developed personal responses to different types of texts that demonstrate insight and significant understanding of the text and are supported by relevant evidence or details from the text.
  • Produce a selection of at least three pieces of structured, crafted and controlled writing which develop and sustain convincing and effective ideas. There is an emphasis on planning; accuracy of grammar; the use of complex sentences, a more academic vocabulary and language features appropriate to audience and purpose. 
  • Frame an inquiry: research, investigate, explain and evaluation information about an issue (individually chosen topic) using literacy skills, in order to form a developed conclusion. (may be optional depending on other subject choices and already accrued literacy credits).
