תיאור הקורס

In IASA, we believe that in order to master English, pupils must be introduced to authentic texts to help improve their thinking and their language skills - reading, writing, listening and speaking. Thus, pupils will be introduced to more literature texts and will continue using the reading strategy they were taught in Tenth Grade and will thus be expected to ask various questions as they read. They will also practice different writing styles - free writing, creative writing and academic writing, both in and out of class, to improve their thinking, writing and reading skills. Pupils will revise grammar and learn any new rules that they will need for the Bagrut. Since we are teaching a language, pupils will be expected to participate in class discussion. This will be particularly beneficial, as pupils will take an oral Bagrut this year. In addition, this year pupils will spend several weeks writing a project on any topic they wish to research.

 

Pupils will also be prepared for the Bagrut questionnaires. This means they will focus on reading and listening comprehensions as well as short writing tasks.
