    Re: Belonging Essay Question 2013 PREDICTION

    I really think it might very well be about 'belonging to communities or groups'
    if you look at the HSC questions since 2009, the year they redid the area of study, then all the questions have been about belonging associated to another entity e.g. 2010 'interaction with others and the world' 2011 'influenced by connections to a place' 2012 'passage of time and interaction with world'.
    Looking at the breakdown of the rubric, the main idea left that i can see is 'connections made with group and made with communities'. Which suck balls since neither of my creatives are mildly related to those concepts

    lol last years 2011 one or so was easy sh-t lol. u could write anything about it using any of the images. This year, theyll probably give u quotes as stimulus for creative. There's always one way to find out. Go break into the boardofstudies office. XD

    Re: Belonging Essay Question 2013 PREDICTION

    i dont get why everyone kicked up a huge storm about the notion of time. There is so many techniques you can draw on in relation to time, especially in Peter Skrzynecki anthology. Time is such an easy concept, i also reckon barriers would be really easy
    though i do think that;
    "ability to enrich a community or the world around them" would be a pain in the ass. lol

    enriches the classmates to have racial acceptance, allowing them to connect to the broader world, enriching their perspective of the futility in racial divide as it is an obstruction to belong etc etc etc

    as for peter skrzynecki LOL

    Its either limit or enrich a community OR how the composer excludes the audience from the world of the text *le sigh*

    Re: Belonging Essay Question 2013 PREDICTION

    heyy there. The question cannot just ask "Not belonging" which is quite biased. When it mentions " belonging" you should always mention the barriers to belonging as well. aye?

    I can't see how Peter Skrzynecki would fit into the "ability to enrich a community..." I would be really screwed if that happens.

    Re: Belonging Essay Question 2013 PREDICTION

    I'm thinking could be about choices to belong or not belong, never been touched on before and it was the central theme for the Catholic paper...

    Re: Belonging Essay Question 2013 PREDICTION

    I really hope it will be on the individual's will/choice to belong with others or self, creating a social barrier. So yeah I agree with the majority, that it'd be on barriers!
    Plus that would be amazing if it was, it's basically what i've written about for my drafts.. I'm doing 'As You Like It' on Jaques and his connection to the Amiens. I've also got a related text, but I'm feeling pretty good about that one, so don't need to disclose
    Has there ever been a Belonging essay asking for 'TWO related texts' specifically?

    Just prepare two, because they can ask for two.

    Re: Belonging Essay Question 2013 PREDICTION

    Imagine, a years worth of preparation, and question like this appears...


    ~~"In engaging with a text, the responder may experience and understand possibilities presented by an exclusion from the world the text represents"

    To what extent does your study of the concept of Belonging resonate with this statement?

    In your response, make detailed reference to your prescribed text and at least ONE other related text of your choosing.~~


    A monster of a question, straight from the rubric. No doubt half of the state will be stumped by a question like this.

    Re: Belonging Essay Question 2013 PREDICTION

    Of course it would be easy for you guys, but let's imagine a normal standard english kid sitting a 3 hour exam for the second time.

    That statement, for the majority of students, is a lot to take in, especially in an exam situation.

    When you do get it, however, then it becomes easy.
