Year 10 - Literature Year 10

In Year 10 Literature, students are introduced to both contemporary and classic literature. Our studies cover a wide range from current authors to Shakespeare, from popular fiction to classic love poems, and from the written word to stage performances and film adaptation.

This course is designed to equip students with the skills required for VCE Literature and VCE English, as well as offer pleasure and enjoyment in reading, writing, speaking and listening.

The reading of challenging texts is required, and there is a strong emphasis on class discussion, participation, and the sharing of ideas based on the readings.

Our current texts for study are:

“The Secret Life of Bees” (novel) Sue Monk Kidd

A Selection of Poetry

A Selection of Short Stories


ʻA house without books is like a room without windows.ʼ-Heinrich Mann
