Course: International Baccalaureate Language and Literature 1
International Baccalaureate Language and Literature 1
IB Language and Literature is a comprehensive and rigorous two-year curriculum for students enrolled in the IB Diploma Programme. The course is a study of both language and literature, and students question the meaning generated by language and texts and focus closely on the language of the texts they study and become aware of the role of each text’s wider context in shaping its meaning. Students develop skills of textual analysis and the understanding that texts, both literary and non-literary, can be seen as autonomous yet simultaneously related to culturally determined reading practices. Students will also develop powers of expression in oral and written communications, and a portion of their work will be externally assessed by international examiners.
