Language Study: Close reading and writing. The close reading element will extend your understanding of passages (key ideas, meanings…), develop your ability to analyse the writer’s style (structure, word choice, tone…) and you will be invited to evaluate passages by citing evidence in support of your comments. In the writing element you will be given the opportunity to write in a variety of genre and to extend your skills (stylistically and technically).
Literary Study: You will study prose, poetry and drama and will be introduced to a range of critical concepts and terms. You will also learn new skills in critical essay writing.
