Stage 2 | Subject outline | Capabilities | Literacy


Literacy is critical in the development of the skills and strategies needed to express, interpret, and communicate complex information and ideas. In English Literary Studies students apply, extend, and refine their repertoire of literacy skills and practices as they examine how meaning is communicated and as they engage in creative response and argument. Students compare texts and consider them in relation to their contexts and purposes, and they consider how texts are created for specific purposes, audiences, and contexts.
