Description In this more visual and media-based course, classes will interrogate the portrayal of boys and men in literature, media and society. This conceptual focus allows students to think about the wider relevance of literature and develop connections between text and context, and to explore the power of literature and media to shape the society in which it is constructed. Assessment This course contributes towards NCEA Level 2, with between 18 and 23 credits. The specific standards may vary by class. The English department will discuss this with students who opt into 201 English.
