As part of our English tutoring program, we believe teaching the English curriculum should balance and integrate all three interrelated strands of Language, Literature and Literacy. These strands focus on students’ knowledge and skills in listening, reading, viewing, speaking, writing and creating. At stage 4 (Years 7 and 8), students will be required to examine and respond to a variety of story writing techniques, understand the ways language and text structures influence the complexity of a text, create characters, and influence emotions and opinions. They will demonstrate their understanding through composing a range of text to communicate their own point of view, selecting a range of language features, images and vocabulary. With each year at Uplift Education, students will focus on a specified Area of Study as a lens through which they will interpret the studied texts.
