Year 12 English

What’s new in Year 12 English?

In year 12, when comparing texts students look at how themes and ideas are represented. They study the relationships between language and genre, and compare texts within the same genre as well as from different genres. There is a closer look at how content, structure and voice of a text are related to its context. Students engage with the values in texts and develop their own interpretations in response.

Main content of Year 12 English

The core contents of year 12 English are:

  • Comparing texts from similar and different genres,
  • Creating various texts by considering language features, purpose, context, audiences, personal voice, and point of view,
  • Examining relationships between texts and contexts,
  • Evaluating perspectives and values found in texts and how these are presented,
  • Reflecting on the student’s own and others’ texts.

Common challenges for students in Year 12 English

One area where students can fall short is in language analysis. It is not enough to simply identify and summarise persuasive language techniques present in a text. In order to achieve a high grade, students need to discuss how language techniques are used to persuade and this is where some students struggle.

Main outcomes for Year 12 English

By the end of year 12 English, students should be able to:

  • Understand the relationships between texts, genres, and contexts,
  • Understand how interpretations of texts can be affected by the content, structure, voice and perspective,
  • Compare different interpretations of texts to their own responses,
  • Create written and mixed media texts in different styles, mediums, and forms.

Most important concepts to ensure your child understands in Year 12 English

Knowing that there can be multiple interpretations of texts, being able to explain how interpretations can be affected by not only the content but also the structure and voice of the text, and being able to write texts in different forms are central to year 12 English.

If hiring a tutor, what study habits and content to focus on in Year 12 English?

A tutor can help your child become familiar with grading criteria so that work is completed with reference to the criteria. In year 12, it is essential that your child is well aware of what examiners are looking for in order to achieve the best possible grade. A tutor can work with your child to practise meeting the highest achievement criteria.

Main challenges involved in tutoring a Year 12 English student

It is all too easy to assume that one’s standard of work is “good enough”. In year 12, the challenge is to continue to look for areas requiring improvement and to practice assessment style tasks as much as possible. At the same time, students should be reassured that as long as they work with reference to the grading criteria, they are capable of achieving their best result.

Some good ideas on how to help your child in Year 12 English

Encourage your child to practise assessment tasks under test conditions. Talk to your child about pacing themselves during trial exams. Also, when using the internet for research, ensure your child uses his/her time effectively and is aware of the difference between useful and irrelevant information. Ask your child to summarise his/her research and to note sources as they go along to avoid plagiarism.

What they say about our tutoring:

Zara has been a real help so far to Naomi who looks forward to seeing her each week after school. Zara is always on time and has a lovely approach, which Naomi has warmed to and she now feels less intimidated by her maths work.
Thank you so much for your email. We are so very happy with how things  are progressing. I can already see Keeleys confidence improving and I can hear her understanding coming along as I listen to the session. Dennis is a fantastic tutor! He is very understanding and patient. He is a lovely man, very friendly and has amazing manners and people skills. I will be recommending your company to anyone I know in the same situation. Thanks again.
Ezy Maths Tutoring really helped my daughter progress both her knowledge and enjoyments of Maths. Her progress has been amazing and she has looked forward to her weekly session with her tutor. The tutor connected really well with my daughter and was able to build her confidence. I am sure that she will now find the transition to high school much easier with her improved skills in maths.
Tammy is great.  She has a friendly manner and she is enthusiastic at every session. Lucy seems to like her and she has some great methods for teaching.  She engages Lucy and makes the sessions fun and interesting bringing things along to help Lucy understand what she is trying to teach her.  She is concentrating on what Lucy's weaknesses are while thinking ahead for Lucy for year 7. From  my observations of the sessions I think she will help Lucy enormously. I am very happy with Tammy to date and hope that she is happy to continue on with Lucy
We are delighted with Charlie as Gabrielle’s tutor. He has been prompt, polite, pleasant and extremely helpful. Within 2 sessions I could see her confidence in attacking problem solving questions had improved and approach to Maths in general.
Thank you. So far so good. Sarah is very approachable and friendly, quick to respond to emails etc. and has a great collaborative style. Jake, who was skeptical of tutoring at first, has found the sessions very useful.

The tutoring with Shamir has been great so far.  Tyler is very happy with him and we can only look forward to an increase in Tyler’s results through hard work and dedication. Shamir appears very dedicated to helping Tyler, which really shows through.  We are very happy with him so far.
