Cyril Jackson

Year 11 Literature – General Units 1 & 2

In the Literature General course, you will learn to create readings of literary texts and to create your own texts, including essays, poems, short stories, plays and multimodal texts. You will learn to read texts in terms of your cultural, social and historical contexts; your values and attitudes; and their generic conventions and literary techniques. There is a focus on how to learn to create texts paying attention to contexts, values and conventions. You will learn about literary language, narrative, image and the power of representation. Students experience the aesthetic and intellectual pleasure that reading and creating literary texts can bring.

Unit 1

lu1Typically this unit is combined with Unit 2 and is suited to you if you if you are aiming to enter further training or the workforce directly from school.

Prerequisite: minimum C grade in Year 10 English or equivalent.

This unit introduces you to relevant and engaging literary texts ranging from poetry, prose fiction, drama and multimodal literary texts. You will consider how all texts use language and conventions in particular ways and learn the strategies used to help make meaning of what is read, such as recurring themes, narratives, structures and conventions.  You will compare familiar texts with unfamiliar ones, including those from other times and places and consider how ideas and groups of people are represented differently in different texts.  By discussing and analysing such representations you will begin to create readings of texts and consider your own attitudes and values; and the moral and ethical positions offered by texts. You will experiment with creating literary texts of your own, for example, poems, plays and short stories; and literary texts that make use of multimodal techniques, for example, poetic photo narratives or short narrative and dramatic films.
