Course Description

During your two years in the IB English A: Literature Higher Level program, you will be expected to complete a variety of oral and written assessments, which will be assessed both internally and externally. Some of these assessments will be informal and formative; meanwhile, others will be formal, summative assessments scored in class or externally by the IBO.  This course is built on the assumption that literature is concerned with our conceptions, interpretations and experiences of the world. It enables an exploration of one of the more enduring fields of human creativity, and provides opportunities for encouraging independent, original, critical and clear thinking.
