Content

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

Assessment will be two set tasks and observations, including one major assignment linking theory and practice (60%), and a minor assignment (40%).

Assessment will total 4000 words or equivalent.
