English for All – Examination Level is a two-year English Language course designed for students, preparing for the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) English ‘A’ Examination, in the fourth and fifth years of the secondary school.
The subject matter of the text adheres closely to the requirements of the CSEC English ‘A’
Examination syllabus and equivalent level national examinations in English Language. The body of the work comprises twenty (20) units, organized in themes to facilitate the integration of the various language components – comprehension (understanding), written expression, poetry, vocabulary, grammar, spelling, punctuation and capitalization.
Resource materials include a range of prose pieces (fiction and non-fiction) as well as selections of poetry. The poems and prose extracts were chosen on the basis of clearly defined criteria:
- level of challenge interest and motivation
- socio-cultural relevance
- literary and linguistic merit
- potential for developing insight, imagination, creativity and judgement.
Consistent with the content, format and prescriptions of the CSEC examination, the text contains a variety of evaluation and assessment modes in oral and written expression – free response (essay type questions), multiple choice items, and integrative and discrete point tests.
