Stage 1 English has an emphasis on responding to texts, creating texts, and intertextual study. Students critically and creatively engage with a variety of types of texts including novels, film, media, poetry, and drama texts. Stage 1 English articulates with the Stage 2 English subjects.
In Stage 2 English students analyse the interrelationships of author, text, and audience, with an emphasis on how language and stylistic features shape ideas and perspectives in a range of contexts.
