The unit focuses primarily on the teaching of English in the post-compulsory years, with particular, but not exclusive, reference to senior English and Literature. It consolidates work completed in curriculum studies in ELE404/ECL461, particularly in relation to oracy, the teaching of texts and the development of response in the senior years, the presentation of issues and argument and the further development of writing. Models of assessment and reporting at this level will be examined, and major external influences and issues affecting the English curriculum, past and present, will be reviewed.


Assessment will be two assignments linking theory and practice.

Planning for and Teaching Writing, 50%, 2000 words equivalent

Assessing and Responding to Students’ Writing, 50%, 2000 words equivalent
