Year 11 English: Myths, Magic and Monsters

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Houghton.

Stories inform our present and influence our future; they delve into various aspects of the human condition and help to explain the inexplicable. 

Through film and a variety of written and visual texts, our Myths, Magic, and Monsters course will explore these diverse stories from Aotearoa and beyond to help us better understand ourselves and the world around us. This course will use pūrākau, myths, and fantasy as context for learning to enhance achievement. It is a full English course, and as such, offers opportunities for listening, reading, viewing, speaking, writing, and presenting.

Students will complete one NCEA L1 Assessment during this course.
