English 3rd Year High School Curriculum

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This course focuses on one’s understanding of the English and American Literature from old to contemporary. It assists one in honing skills and creativity through the different performance tasks- short story writing, drama presentation, poetry slam, and persuasive essay writing as well as enhancing their fundamental language skills as integrated in each lesson to help learners become fully equipped with essential understanding of both language and literature in this level. RATIONALE:

This course aims to engage students the opportunity to explore literary texts written in Old English which will provide them with new understanding of the different cultures or history of the author and the place where the literary work was originated. Aside from that, they will be directed to strengthen their previous knowledge of English in both language and literature thus develop and/or enhance skills in creative writing and critical reading through deep analysis and evaluation of these texts. It also provides varied and meaningful learning experiences that are value-oriented. REQUIREMENTS:

A. ENTRY
The third year students are assumed to have learned some lessons and rules in grammar and all the other things covered in the English 1 and 2 including the literatures of the Philippines and that of other Asian countries and Africa, their genres, elements and features. Thus, they are expected to enhance their knowledge on these things through consistent attention and active participation during class hours, and develop the skills that are yet to be discovered. They are also expected to come up with generative ideas through interpreting English and American short stories, drama, poems and essays and through participating in performance task s or culminating activities prepared per unit. The students in this level should submit their assignments and projects on time (written outputs or creative artworks),
interact with literary texts and their characters and perform the required tasks with eagerness which would in time help them understand their own culture, appreciate and experience God’s greatness. B. EXIT:

At the end of the school year, the students are expected to show confidence on their knowledge and understanding of the literary pieces with emphasis on Anglo-American literature, show their love of reading and writing in a creative and critical manner, and apply these things, most especially the core values highlighted in most of the lessons, at present and in the near future. Lastly, they are likely to show expertise not just in communicating but also in composition writing using well-constructed sentences and paragraphs and all the more, in creating stories, poems and even song lyrics considering appropriate mechanics. GENERAL OBJECTIVES:

The learner demonstrates communicative competence through his/her understanding of British-American Literature, including Philippine Literature and other text types for a deeper appreciation of Philippine Culture and those of other countries.
