Description In this more visual and media-based course, classes will examine the use of language and literature to critique and subvert societal structures. While looking at texts as diverse as dystopian films, print newspapers and Donald Trump's Twitter feed, boys will be encouraged to think critically about the role that language and media play in shaping our world and manipulating our thinking. Assessment This course contributes towards NCEA Level 3 and University Entrance, with between 18 and 23 credits. The specific standards may vary by class. The English Department will discuss this with students who opt into 302 English.
