Year 11

Students select 2 units from Advanced English, Standard English or English Studies (A Work-Related Alternate Program (WRAP) course which has a vocational focus but does not allow an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). The focus of the course is outlined below). There is also the possibility of an extra one unit in Year 11 (Extension English) with the option of extending this to an extra unit in Year 12 (Extension 2 English).

Year 11 English follows the Board of Studies syllabus which includes an area of study as well as modules. In 2017 the area of study will be belonging.  We ensure students engage in a close study of filmic,  dramatic, poetic and narrative techniques to prepare them for the HSC.

Please find attached the Scope and Sequence for 2017 that sets out the pattern of study and assessment tasks for Preliminary English (Standard and Advanced)

WRAP English at Woonona High School

WRAP was introduced in Woonona High School in 2011 as an alternate program of study for students seeking to prepare to enter the workplace or to pursue an apprenticeship. WRAP English (i.e.) Work-Related Alternate Program provides students in Years 11 & 12 with the opportunity to develop skills in English which will assist them in their future work or apprenticeship training.

Students will complete tasks which help in improving their skills in comprehension or reading for meaning, writing, talking, listening as well as having the opportunity to use the skills practised each Friday while undertaking "work experience" in a workplace setting. This allows for valuable feedback and further skills-based learning peculiar to each student's chosen career path.

In WRAP English, students will study contemporary texts and issues in a flexible framework. This is designed to encourage student self-expression as they explore their place in society.
