What is this course about?

2 EAP develops academic language, through the four skills of reading, writing, speaking
and listening. Students study a range of literature, complete research assignments,
and learn to write academic essays. This course enables students to gain the Level 2
Literacy Credits.
Recommended Background: The ability to understand and respond to
basic English, and to express ideas and information in writing.


What will I learn?

The focus is on providing students with a range of English language experiences so they can become proficient users of English in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Students will be given adequate challenges to develop their ideas by reading reports, speeches and academic essays with first language support. Some main stream English materials will be used to keep up with Year 12 and Year 13 students' mental capacity. Students will have the opportunity to gain Level 2 Literacy Credits.

Course design principles:

intentional planning - you will be invited to select topics that you find interesting

high expectations - your teacher will have high expectations for you and her door will always be open for you to discuss where your learning is going

assessment which enables learning - assessment will not be an isolated occurence. Rather, your teacher will gather evidence that you yourself provide of your learning experience as you progress.



What sorts of things will I do?


Use a research process to answer a research question on an academic topic.
Develop writing skills in at least one crafted essay, and several short formative pieces.
Integrate source material into the final essay, using APA referencing.
