Course Outline:

This course is based around texts which draw their inspiration from Science Fiction Literature. We will look at how over time Science Fiction has explored different concerns about our world and its future. We will create, view and read texts to examine these future visions. There will be a certain amount of flexibility in the course structure depending on your interests as we pull from a variety of both external and internal English Achievement Standards.


There are three internal and two external assessments in this course.

Where Does It Lead:

University – many courses require NCEA Level 3 English as a prerequisite (refer to Careers information).
