Extension English

Extension 1 Unit English*

(HSC and Preliminary) is a subject designed to provide further opportunity for students with a special interest in English or who may be considering further study of Literature at a tertiary level. The subject covers independent investigation, sustained composition and theorising on values and complex ideas presented in texts. Students who successfully complete the Preliminary subject are able to enrol in the HSC Extension 1 and Extension 2 subjects.

Extension 2 Unit English*

(HSC only) consists of an independent project chosen by the student. The project could be a creative text or a critical analysis of texts.

* Please note, dependent on enrolment interest, Extension English subjects may not be offered for delivery in face-to-face classes at FISC – In this case, students are offered the course through Distance Education with a FISC teacher mentor supporting these students in accessing and organising their engagement with this course, in timetabled sessions.
