Transcript of HSC English - Advanced Course

Advanced English What you need to know? Rationale The Preliminary and HSC English (Advanced) courses are designed for students to become critical and sophisticated users of English in order to enhance their personal, social and vocational lives. These courses provide students who have a particular interest and ability in the subject with challenging learning experiences and opportunities to enjoy the breadth and variety of English texts, through the integration of the modes of reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing and representing. Students explore language forms, features and the structures of a variety of texts in a range of personal, social, historical, cultural and workplace contexts. They refine their understanding of the relationships between language and meaning. They respond to and compose texts critically and imaginatively, in order to extend experience, gain access to and evaluate ideas and information, and synthesise the knowledge gained from a range of sources to fulfill a variety of purposes. Students learn to use language in complex and subtle ways to express experiences, ideas and feelings. They engage in close study of texts and extend their knowledge of personal, social, historical, cultural and workplace contexts to understand how these influence the composition of and response to texts. These courses foster an appreciation of aesthetic values and provide students with opportunities for enhancing their understanding of literary expression. Students explore the different ways in which texts rewrite and represent conventions used in other texts, and they consider how these representations achieve meaning. They learn that different ways of reading may produce different meanings and may reflect attitudes and values. Students are encouraged to value a range of approaches to texts so that they may become flexible and critical thinkers, capable of appreciating the variety of cultural heritages and differences that make up Australian society. These courses also encourage the development of skills in both collaborative and independent learning. Such skills form the basis of sound practices of investigation and analysis required for adult life, the world of work and post-school training and education. These courses encourage students to reconsider and refine meaning and to reflect on their own processes of responding, composing and learning. Students will develop knowledge and understanding of: ➢
the purposes and effects of a range of textual forms in their personal, social, historical, cultural and workplace contexts➢
the ways language forms and features, and the structures of texts shape meaning in a variety of textual forms. Students will develop skills in:➢
responding to and composing a range of complex texts ➢effective communication at different levels of complexity ➢independent investigation, individual and collaborative learning➢
imaginative, critical and reflective thinking about meaning➢
reflection as a way to evaluate their processes of composing, responding and learning Students will come to value and appreciate: ➢
the role of language in developing positive interaction and cooperation➢
their developing skills as users of English ➢
the pleasure and diversity of language and literature ➢
the role of language and literature in their lives
➢the study and use of English as a key to learning ➢reflection on their own processes of responding, composing and learning ➢
