ENG3U1 - English, Grade 11, University Preparation

This course emphasizes the development of literacy, critical thinking, and communication skills. Students analyse challenging texts from various periods; conduct research and analyse the information gathered; write narrative, persuasive, comparative, reflective and literary essays; analyse the relationship among media forms, audiences, and media industry practices. An important focus is understanding the development of the English language.

Through the study of literature, students will demonstrate the ability to identify and connect pieces with similar themes and to examine various literary forms and issues. They are introduced to genres as they explore the nature of good and evil, of humanity, of loyalty, of power, of justice, and of ambition.  In other pieces of contemporary literature, students will examine themes of social consciousness and the connection between issues in literature and life.
