getting started information how this course is delivered

EN1600 is a print-based course, with course material and supplementary material accessed from the online teaching and learning environment (OTLE). Dual enrolled students are expected to access material from OTLE. Other enrolled students may request printed materials to be posted, accepting there will be a delay between enrolment and receiving the first posting. To access OTLE go to our website at www.tekura.school.nz and click on Login on the top right of the homepage. Scroll down to the OTLE heading and click the Login to OTLE link. You may wish to bookmark the OTLE login screen in your browser. Your username to access OTLE is based on your Te Kura student ID number. Username: <Student ID> (Your Te Kura student ID number) Password: 12345678 You will be asked to change your password when you have logged in.

unit standard literacy

This course also links to the three literacy unit standards which sit in the Work and Study Skills area of the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) at Level 1. These standards are assessed against Step 4 of the Learning Progressions for Adult Literacy, not the New Zealand Curriculum. For more information, visit the Literacy and Numeracy for Adults (Te Apariki Ako) website: www.literacyandnumeracyforadults.com/The-Learning-Progressions. This pathway will be available to any students in this course who need it in order to gain literacy for Level 1 NCEA. Students will negotiate this with their teacher if it becomes evident that they will not gain literacy through the achievement standard pathway. Work from the Unit Standards in this course can be used as evidence of literacy.

organising your study

Plan a regular time to study. Some people learn best from frequent short sessions while others do better with fewer, longer sessions. It is important to have a plan or a timetable and to keep to it. There is a suggested planner in this guide for you to plan your programme of study. You should consult with your subject teacher to help you decide on your plan. Getting your study underway is very important. Your first return of work should be two to three weeks after you first received your initial work. If you have any issues returning your work within this time please contact your subject teacher. For more information on how to study successfully, refer to the Student Guide to Years 11â&#x20AC;&#x201C;13 (www.tekura.school.nz). Š te ah o o t e k ur a p o un a m u

The key competencies are: •• thinking •• using language, symbols and texts •• managing self •• relating to others •• participating and contributing. Thinking, and using language, symbols and texts: you will be thinking and reading about issues and texts. Managing self: this is developed as you manage your own programme, in consultation with your teacher and (if applicable) your supervisor. Relating to others and participating and contributing: talk to your teacher regularly about your programme and how you are going. If possible, you should become part of our online learning community (OTLE) and participate in online discussions about texts and activities with other students.

te kura codes

Your course code is: EN1600. EN is the code for English and 1 refers to Level 1.

resources you need •• Te Kura booklets.

•• Refill paper or an exercise book or a computer. •• A DVD or CD player. Computer access with an internet connection is extremely useful for research and online learning. However, you can complete this course without a computer.

choosing topics and standards

You may wish to do only some topics. You should consider: •• how well this will meet your learning goals •• whether it will meet the course entry requirements for university, polytechnic or industry training courses •• whether you will be able to gain enough credits to achieve your NCEA. A list of achievement standards from levels 1, 2 and 3 that count towards Level 1 literacy can be accessed from: www.nzqa.govt.nz/about-us/our-role/legislation/nzqa-rules/secondary-schools-supportinginformation/level-1-literacy-and-numeracy-requirements/

self-marking

Many activities are self-marked. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find an Answer guide in each resource. Use these answers to mark your own work and make corrections where necessary. Self-marking is very important as it gives you instant feedback on how well you understand the ideas, concepts or information that have been covered. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how you learn by distance.

assessment

Students have to send in their self-marked and teacher-assessed work. Teachers return student work with feedback and advice in preparation for NCEA internal assessments. The assessment criteria for Achievement and Unit Standards are given in the booklets.

time commitment

In this course, each booklet indicates how many study hours it is likely to require. For example, booklet EN1022 may take 20 hours of work to complete at the normal pace, which is about four weeks of work.

normal pace of learning

As a guide, expect to do at least five hours work per week. This means completing three to four booklets each term so that you finish the course by the end of the school year.

flexible pace of learning/starting late

If you have less than a year because you start later or need to finish earlier, you can decide the pace at which you work. You could still complete the whole course by devoting more time and effort to it. Your teacher can ensure that you receive the resources you need in time to do this.

cover sheets

The back cover of the booklet becomes the cover sheet for your work. Sign the authentication statement to say that you did the assessment work on your own before sending the booklet back to Te Kura. Your supervisor also signs this sheet as part of our authenticity requirements (unless you are an adult student).

queries about your work

It is important to contact your teacher if you have any queries about your work. The free phone number is 0800 65 99 88.

assessment information literacy

•• From 2012 you need 10 literacy credits to gain NCEA level 1. •• These credits can be achieved through other Level 1 achievement standards in other subjects. •• This list is on www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/qualifications/ncea/subjects/ literacy-and-numeracy-level-1/ •• They may also be achieved through three specific unit standards, available through LY1500. •• Work from EN1600 may be transferred to these unit standards if up to standard.

standards

The National Qualifications Framework has two types of national standards: Achievement and Unit Standards. Credits from both Achievement Standards and Unit Standards count towards NCEA. Please refer to our Student Guide to National Certificates or Te Kura (www.tekura.school.nz) and NZQA websites (www.nzqa.govt.nz) for more information about National Certificates of Educational Achievement and assessment.

internal assessment

The Achievement Standards and Unit Standards are internally assessed. This means that your teacher sets and marks all assessments that count towards credits gained for these standards.

resubmissions

If you have made mistakes in your assessment, your teacher may offer you one resubmission opportunity. This means you have made errors that you are capable of discovering and correcting by yourself. A resubmission allows you to improve your result.

further assessment opportunities for internal assessments For some standards, you will be able to complete a second assessment called a ‘further assessment opportunity’ to improve your results. These standards are indicated in the assessment summary. You should take this opportunity where it is available.

authenticity Authenticity means students complete and submit work that is their own. When you submit work to Te Kura, you sign an authentication declaration that the work you are submitting is your own work and was done under the required assessment conditions. Your supervisor signs this declaration to confirm this (unless you are an adult student).

appeals You have the right to query an assessment result if you want further clarification or disagree with the result. If you are still not satisfied, you may appeal. Refer to the Student Guide to National Certificates for more information. You can also appeal any other decisions, procedures or policies about assessments. Contact your teacher or Learning advisor if you wish to appeal. More information and a form that students can use to appeal are available on the Te Kura website in the Student toolkit area (www.tekura.school.nz and go to Student toolkit). 12
