Term-Wise Year 9 English Australia Curriculum We Cover

CrunchGrade follows the prescribed English syllabus for Year 9 students in Australia.

Term 1 Year 9 English syllabus focuses on Australian literature, short stories, dramas, oral narrative traditions and contemporary literature of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Students learn how they can create an Australian identity by using selective evidence about people, situations and events and presenting different perspectives about them.

At CrunchGrade, we focus on literary techniques students can use to read, analyse and respond to texts. These include language features, figurative language, context and points of view. Students also practise skills in writing for different purposes and audiences using a range of voices and styles.

Term 2 Year 9 English syllabus focuses on short scientific articles from credible sources. Students are exposed to technical information, scientific vocabulary and language, abstracts, and graphic representations that they later use to turn the article into a science fiction story.

At CrunchGrade, we focus on honing students' scientific and technical reading skills. They also learn how to effectively use direct and indirect quotes, paraphrases and summaries from the articles. Science fiction stories and films are analysed for the kind of language devices they use.

Term 3 Year 9 English syllabus focuses on Asian literary and non-literary texts and compares human experiences they narrate to ethical and global dilemmas. Students create a report about selected texts - comparing and contrasting them and commenting on their text structures, interpretations, language features and literary techniques used in them.

At CrunchGrade, we focus on helping students understand different perspectives about human experiences. They learn how to use evidence from the text to support their interpretation and make value judgments about the texts. Students also practise skills in writing analytical and persuasive texts.

Term 4 Year 9 English syllabus focuses on differences between media texts and online interactions. Students study the changes in the language of new media and how jargon and technical language play a role in bringing together specific communities.

At CrunchGrade, students evaluate the effectiveness of an online platform to establish relationships between different audiences and use innovative verbal and non-verbal forms of language to foster these relationships.

New Things Grade 9 Australian Students Will Learn in English

In Year 9, students start learning about vocational topics. As they engage with and discuss a wide range of literary texts, they start getting involved with higher-order reasoning, abstractions and intertextual references they contain. They also investigate the differences between media texts and study the language of the contemporary media in greater detail.

Year 9 students study literature from a range of genres that often have complex plots sequences, have multiple purposes, and use hybrid text structures. They explore themes of human experience and cultural significance and get exposed to global dilemmas. 

Abstract and dense information on specialised topics, analysing literature, and writing reviews are other things high school students start learning in Grade 9.

Overcome Your Learning Challenges with Year 9 English Tutors

Using sentence fragments, omitting apostrophes, plural and verb agreement, and writing in active voice are some of the most common mistakes Year 9 students make in grammar.

At CrunchGrade, our team of expert English tutors help students understand and overcome these and other learning challenges. With years of experience teaching the Australian curriculum, our tutors know exactly what topics to focus on and how to make the learning process easier for students.

Another common challenge for students at this year's level is how to structure an essay, how to use evidence to support claims, and how to interpret a text to justify their point of view. Again, our highly experienced and qualified tutors are here to help.

What Our Grade 9 English Tutors Help You Achieve?

Our English tutors teach high school students how to manipulate the effect of their writing work using text structures. They explain the works of different authors in detail to help students recognize the words they choose, the images they use and the language features they employ to create the desired effect.

By the end of this year, students learn to evaluate information from different sources, synthesize it, and interpret it independently. They understand how to employ good reasoning while making value judgments about the texts.

They also know how to use textual evidence to support their interpretation and make comments on the language features, text structures, and literary techniques used by authors in different texts.

Important Topics in Year 9 English Syllabus

In Year 9, English students move beyond the basic analysis of the text and use the information and ideas mentioned in it to form their own arguments. This is one of the foundational skills your child will need in senior years when he or she needs to write essays responding to selected texts.

Another crucial skill students learn this year is to analyse different viewpoints on different issues and current affairs, summarise the available information, develop an opinion on it, and present it persuasively to audiences.

Challenges in Tutoring English to Year 9 Students

Creating complex texts is not everyone's cup of tea. Tutoring English to high school students requires in-depth knowledge of the subject as well as excellent communication skills.

Until the junior level of high school students are used to concrete thinking. They may not have abstract thinking skills yet to understand advanced concepts. So, it becomes a challenge to make them see the big picture while teaching specific topics. Our tutors help them improve their analytical and interpretative skills so that they can read between the lines.

Teenagers are mostly argumentative. They love to debate everything you say. Our English tutors love this as it means that their students can see viewpoints from another angle.

Opinionated or not, every student is different. Some students are quick learners while others need more time to understand a concept. Our tutors use differentiated instruction methods to ensure that each student gets the attention he or she deserves.

CrunchGrade Grade 9 English Online Tutoring Advantage

For our High School English tutors, 14-15-year-olds are their favourite group of students. Some of our most advanced students were between 14 to 17 years old. Our online tutors are excellent at engaging students and starting conversations that encourage students to share their experiences and stories with their teachers.

It is easiest to teach Grade 9 students English since they are not yet bogged down by the pressures of senior high school. They have not lost their intrinsic love for learning and exploring new things.

A lot of grade 9 students are very engaged in social media platforms. Our online English tutors use this to their advantage by incorporating social media posts and articles in the curriculum to make the learning process more relatable and fun for the students.

We also have several enrichment programs for our Grade 9 students who want to go above and beyond in their learning.
