    Wink Belonging Essay Question 2013 PREDICTION

    Hi Guys..

    Just wanted your opinions on what you think this years 2013 belonging paper's main theme will be centred around? (what the essay question will be mostly)

    Mainly I think the question will be centred around identity, considering it hasn't been asked/implied in past HSC belonging exams.

    Please post your thoughts below.

    Cheers

    Re: Belonging Essay Question 2013 PREDICTION

    I have a feeling that they're gonna choose a harder part of the rubric or a part that's overlooked by many. I think they might make it on belonging to, or exclusion, from the world of the text. Personally I have no idea what that means or how to interpret that :/ Identity could be possible

    Definitely be something weird.


    I know for a fact that last year when I opened the paper and it was based on "time" I was dumbfounded.

    Regardless of what pre-conceived notions you may have, Board of Studies will turn them on it's head.

    Identity's too predictable - remember, it has to be from the rubric or related to that.

    I'd say barriers to belonging/overcoming barriers to attain belonging.

    Thinking this too.

    Sigh. So on what basis do I construct my generic essays on? Just generically, exploring a large scope of the rubric and increase specificity in the exam.

    It will be.
    Not sure if anyone else here checks past papers cos they're most likely gonna pick something they haven't done. Look at prescriptions and past papers and cross off the things they've already asked.

    I disagree man. tbh, the "time" concept with belonging should not have been a surprise to anyone. if you look in the rubric it clearly states "They may reflect the way attitudes to belonging are modified over time.". It doesn't seem the board of studies put much of a spin on the question in my opinion.

    Identity IS in the rubric "students may consider aspects of belonging in terms of experiences and notions of identity".

    I rekon it'll be barriers in attaining belonging and how identity comes into that.

    "potential of the individual to enrich or challenge a community or group."? with an identity component to it?

    Re: Belonging Essay Question 2013 PREDICTION

    It could be something like how an individual's own identity creates barriers to belonging...

    I don't know. I guess we're just going to have to wait and see!

    I don't really think this is done however that doesn't mean it couldn't be
    I guess belonging to the text is more about the language and values explored in the text, and how you as a reader feel connected to the story. That would be beast...

    I Think they have already done something on places, so its safe to say if wont be asked again. But this question on barriers sounds plausable

    Honestly I have a strong feeling it will be on not belonging, choosing not to belong, social class, things like that
