In English Language and Literature, students are expected to write 3 – 4 Written Tasks over the course of two years. The goal of this 800 – 1000 word assignment is to showcase a student’s ability to imaginatively explore some aspect of classwork. In producing a Written Task, the student needs to demonstrate critical engagement and explain his or her choice of topic and work by writing out a brief rationale.
Students need to apply stylistic elements within their Written Task that are relevant to the type of written work. These include journal articles, newspaper editorials, blog entries, pastiches or voicing opinions through characterization.
