Class Descriptions

Class groups entire year

These are only available when there are sufficient numbers of students from the same school who attend together.
Class duration: 90 minutes

 

UNIT 3
From January 2019

Given the large number of texts at Year 12 English and the different order in which schools choose to assess the SACs, Year 12 students need to take both a“Core class” and a “writing /SAC class.
 
One Unit 3 text will be used for the Creative SAC and this will be covered in the writing class.
 
It is not necessary to study the text chosen for the creative SAC in as great a depth as the text for the analytical SAC. 

If none of a student’s texts are nominated, then the student should choose the “core class” where language analysis and targeted work on the student’s selected text can be given. 

Students must book for the 2 hours in term 1 and they have the option of continuing this into term 2.

 

Text classes / language analysis

These classes will focus on the nominated set text and primarily upon the skills required for analytical essay writing for the SAC and the end-of-year exam. The classes will run across Unit 3 and therefore will also include language analysis.
Class duration: 90 minutes

Workshops

Workshops will be offered from time to time depending upon student needs and will focus on both texts and writing skills. These will be advertised through Excelsior and on the website.
Duration: 2 hours

UNIT 4
From June 2019

Students will study their comparative pairing of texts and language analysis in the one 90 minute class. The timetable will change.
 
The option of taking an extra one hour essay writing skills class will be offered in Unit 4.
 

Comparative text classes

These classes will study in depth the paired texts and focus on the skills of essay writing for comparison. The classes will prepare students for both the SAC in Unit 4 and the end-of-year exam. As this is the core class for Unit 4, students will also revise language analysis for the exam.

Class duration: 90 minutes
 

Text Classes and workshops (Term 4)

In preparation for the exam there will be several workshops run for the purposes of revision. These will largely focus on essay writing for the exam.
