ENGLISH - LEARNING AREA

ENGLISH - Course of Study Year 11: Unit 1A + Unit 1B Pathway One Year 12: Unit 1C + Unit 1D (There is no external exam for this pathway) Year 11: Unit 1C + Unit 1D Pathway Two Year 12: Unit 2A+Unit 2B (Students following this pathway will complete the Stage 2 external exam) Year 11: Unit 2A + Unit 2B Pathway Three Year 12: Unit 3A + Unit 3B (Students following this pathway will complete the Stage 3 external exam) In the English Course of Study, students learn that language is a dynamic social process which responds to, and reflects changing social conditions, and that the meaning of any form of communication depends on context, purpose and audience. Students develop an appreciation of and sensitivity to socio-cultural diversity in theuse of English and the ability to reflect on, and critically analyse their own use of language and the language of others. The English Course of Study is designed to facilitate achievement in the four outcomes of Listening and Speaking, Viewing, Reading and Writing.

Units 1C and 1D ENG 1C ENG The focus for this unit is language and self. Students learn to use language to present themselves, their experiences, ideas, opinions and responses more effectively. They explore the way language varies according to purpose, context and audience. They develop their ability to control standard Australian English.

1D ENG The focus for this unit is language and society. Students explore and develop language skills relevant to activities associated with their current and future membership of society. They develop skills in finding, accessing, using and evaluating information.

Prerequisite: Completion of two Year 11 English CoS units or Year 11 English Literature.

Units 2A and 2B ENG 2A ENG The focus for this unit is language and action. Students develop language skills by exploring issues of concern or controversy, past or present, and examining the way language is used in relation to these topics. Students apply language skills with the aim of affecting attitudes and actions, using a variety of genres and taking account of different contexts, purposes and audiences.

2B ENG The focus for this unit is language and the world. Students explore the way in which language offers particular ideas and information about topics, events or people and produce texts of their own which do the same. They learn about the way in which context, purpose and audience shape the conventions used and how language and representations differ among different texts and contexts.

Prerequisite: A ‘C’ grade in Year 11 English CoS units 1C/1D or a ‘D’ grade in Year 11 English Literature.

ENGLISH - LEARNING AREA

Units 3A and 3B ENG 3A ENG The focus for this unit is language and identity. Students study identities as social constructs that are intimately bound up with social, political and linguistic contexts. They learn to critically interpret the relationship between particular uses of language and texts on the one hand and conceptions of identity on the other. Students develop oral, visual and written language skills by learning to produce texts in a range of genres which explore, produce, challenge and/or subvert conceptions of identity.

3B ENG The focus for this unit is language and ideas. Students explore the way language is used to present ideas and how this varies among particular fields, genres, and discourses. They examine the discursive and generic conventions, approaches to interpretation and presentation associated with selected fields, vocations and/or discourses and the ways in which these differ from each other. Students are also provided with a range of opportunities to demonstrate their understandings and language skills.

Prerequisite: A ‘C’ grade in Year 11 English CoS units 2A/2B or a ‘C’ grade in English Literature.

ENGLISH LITERATURE - E005 Pathway Year 11: Eng Lit. D005 Year 12: Eng Lit. E005 This subject is designed to develop students' critical, analytical and creative abilities through the study of poetry, prose fiction and drama texts in the social, cultural and historical contexts in which they are produced and read. It emphasises detailed analysis of the ideological and social constructions of texts and the roles of the writer, the reader and the text in the construction of meaning. Students refine their skills of expression through evaluative and analytical responses, in oral and written form.





Prerequisite: A ‘C’ grade in Year 11 English Literature.

LANGUAGES (LOTE) - LEARNING AREA FRENCH - E006 (TEE Subject) This subject aims to promote further students' communicative skills in both spoken and written French. It also aims to extend their understanding of the cultures and ways of life in countries where French is spoken, as well as in those communities within Australia where French is used. In this subject students typically engage in a range of activities and are exposed to a variety of authentic models of spoken and written French in order to develop greater confidence and fluency in using the language in different contexts.

–  –  –

Prerequisite: Students enrolling in this subject are expected to have studied French to Year 11 level or its equivalent.

ITALIAN – Course of Study Units 3A and 3B ITA 3A ITA The focus for this unit is made in Italy (made in Italy). It is primarily aimed at students who have welldeveloped skills and understanding and are ready to work with challenging content. Students explore more complex texts such as magazines and advertising; genres such as comedy texts and historical texts;

or topics, such as music, finding work or teenage trends. They develop a further insight into Italian cultures by analysing the place of texts in everyday life such as how one’s identity is influenced by the role models portrayed in advertising and the media in general.

Students explore the trends in Italy and the importance of these in the establishment of identity. They evaluate the importance of things Italian in their day to day life such as food, fashion, film, cars, art, and music. Students reach an understanding of the impact of Italy, Italians and Italian speaking communities in the world.

3B ITA The focus for this unit is …e poi? (what next?). It is aimed at students who have well-developed skills and understanding, and show a sound knowledge of content as well as the development of a personal style. These students have completed unit 3A or an equivalent, including a sound understanding of the unit content outline in stage 1 and 2 units. It allows them to acquire skills to reflect on, critically evaluate and respond personally to more complex issues using advanced language and a wide range of text types.

Students reflect on their lives, their experiences and what the future has in store. They examine future study, employment, travel and relationships. Students focus on issues pertinent to Italian-speaking communities, and to the students themselves or to their community e.g. personal, social, environmental issues.

Prerequisite: Students enrolling in this subject are expected to have studied Italian 2A and 2B.

MATHEMATICS - LEARNING AREA

APPLICABLE MATHEMATICS- E504 (TEE Subject) This subject is intended for more mathematically able students who desire a strong mathematical preparation for tertiary studies. Successful completion of the Year 11 subject Introductory Calculus provides a suitable preparation.

One major theme is the solution of equations. This includes matrix methods for solving systems of linear equations, graphical and numerical methods for solving non-linear equations, and graphical linear programming. The other major theme is statistics and probability. In the statistics section students will learn to draw conclusions from statistical data using simple numerical and graphical techniques.

The section on probability provides the framework for future studies of statistical inference.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Introductory Calculus.

CALCULUS - E506 (TEE Subject) This subject is intended for more mathematically able students who desire a strong mathematical preparation for tertiary studies. Successful completion of the Year 11 subjects Introductory Calculus and Geometry and Trigonometry provides a suitable preparation.

Calculus extends the theory and techniques of differential and integral calculus first studied in the Year 11 subject Introductory Calculus and combines them with the trigonometric and vector methods of the Year 11 subject Geometry and Trigonometry. Complex numbers are also introduced. The study of complex numbers unifies algebraic, trigonometric, calculus and vector concepts.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Introductory Calculus and Geometry and Trigonometry.

DISCRETE MATHEMATICS - E502 (TEE Subject) This subject is intended for students who wish to study mathematics in their final years at school and who may be preparing for entry to tertiary courses which do not have a strong mathematical requirement.

Successful completion of the Year 11 subject Foundations of Mathematics or the Year 11 subject Introductory Calculus provides a suitable background for Discrete Mathematics.

Discrete Mathematics has sections entitled Projects, Problem-solving and Investigations, Data Analysis, Optimisation (including linear programming and networks) and Growth and Decay (including functions and sequences and series). There is also an emphasis on problem-solving and mathematical investigations which do not necessarily relate to the content areas listed in the syllabus. In this way students can concentrate on the processes of mathematics using content with which they are already familiar.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Foundations of Mathematics.

MATHEMATICS -- LEARNING AREA

MODELLING with MATHEMATICS - E511 (Wholly School Assessed) The role of Modelling with Mathematics is to provide students with a relevant and rewarding preparation for post-school situations in which mathematics is used. This subject has been specifically designed to cater for students who require preparation for a wide range of occupations within the community, or tertiary-bound students who do not require formal mathematics for their intended areas of study. It offers a range of topics that enable students to examine situations arising from social and physical contexts and to use techniques of mathematical modelling to address them.

The topics are derived from the Major Learning Outcomes in the Mathematics Learning Areas of the Curriculum Framework, in particular from the clusters Working Mathematically, Number, Measurement, Chance and Data and Space. Collaborative learning is to be encouraged. The responsibility is given to the student to choose appropriate mathematics and to work individually and in groups towards required solutions.

The modelling approach enables students to solve real problem situations through the use of appropriate mathematical techniques, resulting in continuing development of mathematical understanding. Through mathematical modelling, students will study a range of topics such as Finance, In Three Dimensions, Making Decisions and The Environment.

The subject reflects current technological developments by assuming the use of calculators and computers in the teaching-learning program.

Modelling with Mathematics is designed to complement the skills developed in the Year 11 subject Mathematics in Practice.

Prerequisite: There are no prerequisites for this subject.

THE ARTS - LEARNING AREA

ART - E630 (TEE Subject) Art is a means by which people communicate with one another in a visual form, passing on values of the past and present which help to generate a sense of identity. This course is divided into three areas, visual inquiry, studio practice, display and art history, which will develop knowledge, imagination, appreciation and evaluations. These aspects are necessary for perception, creative thinking and self-expression, for critical awareness and the development of practical skills in the visual arts.

Visual inquiry, contained in a visual diary and art history, support the development of studio practice.

Students submit a visual diary for internal assessment at the end of each project and then for external assessment in term four.

Students specialise in one studio area only, they choose from ceramics, painting, sculpture, textiles, and printmaking and are required to complete three studio projects from this area during the year. It is a requirement that students exhibit their work for final assessment eg Mercedes College Open Day exhibition. This display accounts for 15% of the assessment for studio practice.

Art history focuses on both international and Australian art with student essays and assignments on the selected themes. Excursions are organised to view the Perspectives exhibition and other relevant exhibitions at local venues eg, Lawrence Wilson Gallery, UWA.
