Lecture Overview:

Our Unit 3 English Summer School lectures will focus on the three areas of study as well as a selection of individual texts.

Part 1 – Reading and Creating Texts

You will learn how to prepare sustained creative responses to texts and explore issues of purpose and audience. You will also learn how to make key choices about structure,

conventions and language, and how to produce a sophisticated analytical interpretation of a selected text.

Part 2 – Reading and Comparing Texts

You will discover how to compare the features of texts on which comparisons are based, while learning how to correctly use textual evidence to support comparative analysis. You will also learn how to analyse the interplay between character and setting, voice and structure, and how ideas, issues and themes are conveyed. The features of comparative analysis: structure, conventions and language, including relevant metalanguage will also be discussed.

Parts 3 – Analysing & Presenting Argument

You will extend on your ability to dissect and present your analysis about how points of view are presented in both written and visual texts, and learn how to write controlled, high quality responses which present arguments using language that is specific to the exam assessment criteria.
