Students develop key knowledge, skills and understandings when analysing complex ideas and perspectives in mainly written texts, as well as the language and stylistic features used in texts. When creating oral, written and multimodal texts for specific purposes, contexts and audiences, students apply their knowledge and understanding of accurate language use and conventions.

Respond to Texts 50%

Students must achieve a C grade in 20-credits of English subjects to meet the Literacy requirement of the SACE.
Students will be enrolled in English Literary Studies, English, Essential English, or Vocational English based on teacher recommendations and parent approval. Teacher recommendations are based on previous achievements, PAT results, career pathway and teacher knowledge of the content. Negotiations can be made if a specific pathway is required for students.
