English Studies 12 is a required course for students and extends their previous learning experiences in the ELA 10 and 11 courses. The course is designed for all students and will provide opportunities to refine their ability to communicate effectively in a variety of contexts and to achieve their personal and career goals. Students will think critically and creatively about the uses of language, and explore texts from a variety of sources, in multiple modes, and which reflect diverse worldviews. They will deepen their understanding of themselves and a changing world, and gain insight into the diverse factors that shape identity. Topics of study will include self-representation through text, Reconciliation and the knowledge and perspectives of First Peoples, and what it means to be an educated Canadian and global citizen.
