Year 10 English

Year 10 English 

Throughout Year 10 students complete a range of units to help prepare them for their Senior studies. Through the close study of poets from a range of diverse backgrounds, students come to appreciate how the personal, social and historical context of a poet can inform the the subject and craftsmanship of their work. In addition, Year 10 complete a close study of a novel examining elements such as plot, character, theme, structure and language techniques, and the way the novelist uses these to create meaning. Students continue to students explore Shakspeare by conducting a close study of Shakespeare’s tragedy, Macbeth, particularly focusing on how the play has been interpreted and reimagined over time. Furthermore, students will read at least one novel of their own choosing as part of a Wide Reading unit, explore the concept of 'coming of age' and examine how the truth can be presented and represnted in documentaries and the media.
