10 English 1

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Lerena Glucina.

This full year course further develops skills learnt in Year 9 in all six areas of the national curriculum: listening, reading, viewing, speaking, writing and presenting.

All Year 10 students will be assessed against the national standards in all six areas during the year. They will study a variety of written, visual and oral texts and develop a range of writing styles and deliver an oral presentation. Using language, symbols and text is central to this subject. We aim to provide each student with a course that will involve stimulating text and language studies.

The English Faculty also provides students with the opportunity to take part in co-curricular debating, writing club, film club, spoken word poetry and trips to the annual Auckland Writers’ Festival. 

The teaching strategies used for each class are differentiated in order to extend those who are already working at or above Level 5 on the national curriculum and support those who are below the level to meet NCEA requirements in Year 11.


There are a variety of assessments throughout the year and an end of year examination.
