Secondary English Literature


Secondary English Literature
Secondary/ Grade 2 to 4 (2020)

Our Approach
Our Secondary English Literature programme is taught by our founding director, Ms Geraldine Chew. Lessons will focus on unseen prose and poetry for Secondary/Grade 2 to 4 students. Students taking Literature are required to critically analyse the given text, as well as identify and explain the various literary devices engaged therein. Due to the unseen nature of these assignments, students often struggle to attain the maximum grade.

Benefits

The programme will look at a different poetry or prose each lesson where students will be taught the necessary skills and techniques to:

  • Understand, analyse, annotate the text
  • Identify and explain the literary and stylistic devices
  • Organise and structure the essay to meet the demands of the question
  • Write the essay clearly, cogently and persuasively

Students will be given ample practice and prompt, personalised feedback to hone their writing ability. This programme is not for the faint hearted. There will be rigour and work during each 2-hour lesson.
