到達目標


A course of study developing the critical skills of interpreting poetry and stories with particular emphasis on how forms of literature and the way that they engage with ideas such as the Self, the Other, Community, and Reality, develop over time. The students will also study reading and writing skills to support preparation for examinations.

授業の進め方・学習方法


Activities in class will be content-driven and the methods in which the content is studied will be wide ranging from teacher centered lecture style classes, to group activities, to individual research and study activities.

Typically the content studied each term will be centered on English in use (in literature, poetry and informational texts) along with supplementary components of vocabulary building and grammar skill building.

Assessment in the class will consist of both formative and summative assessment; formal and informal. Students’ skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening will each be assessed each term through written essays, tests, presentations and participation in group discussions and activities.

担当者からのアドバイス


We have a lot of material to study this year, so it is very important that you complete your homework on time and keep up with the course of study. If you find it difficult to keep up or are not sure about what is going on, please don’t hesitate to ask your fellow students for help, or you can come and speak to me in the teachers’ room at any time and I will be more than happy to help you.
