Grade 11, English: Contemporary Aboriginal Voices               (University)                          NBE3U1

This course emphasizes the development of literacy, critical thinking, and communication skills through the study of works in English by Aboriginal writers. Through the analysis of literary texts and media works, students will develop an appreciation of the wealth and complexity of Aboriginal writing. Students will also conduct research and analyse the information gathered; write persuasive and literary essays; and analyse the relationship between media forms and audiences. An important focus will be the further development of students’ understanding of English-language usage and conventions.  The course is intended to prepare students for the compulsory Grade 12 university or college preparation course and is equivalent to ENG3U.
