    Re: Roll Call - EX2 2015!

    So how is everyone progressing along with their major works? Has anyone started?

    My teacher has mainly directed me down the research path. He doesn't really want our class to begin writing their major until next year, although he does want us to write "loose" texts to develop our writing.

    So far I am enjoying this course! It's more independent than History Extension, and I find that I work best with independence.

    What do you all think of EX2?

    Re: Roll Call - EX2 2015!

    So far our group is still all on the research phase.

    But i think i will be looking to just write though, get as much down as possible throughout the holidays and smash into it at the start of term .
    The E2 course i am in at the moment has about 8 students in it and now that we have all gained a reasonable grasp on our topic areas and thesis we have just been sitting down each lesson and discussing whatever comes to mind haha. Its so free and random, i love it.

    Hey, I'm Sarina.

    I'm doing a short story for my major work- I've actually got my viva voce in 4 days.
    I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty scared. Hope it goes okay.
    Good luck everyone!

    Re: Roll Call - EX2 2015!

    I am really liking Ext2. As much as it is overwhelming at the prospect of being completely in control of your own work (apart from guidance from our mentors obviously), I think it a rewarding course.
    This might sound like I'm thinking too far ahead, but I can't wait to actually finish my major work and feel all proud and everything..
    My teacher has said he basically wants a draft of the major work done by the beginning of next term. These six week holidays are going to be busy..
    OH well. Go hard or go home.
    Good luuuuckk

    Confidence!! Sometimes they like to challenge your ideas - STICK TO THEM! Argue why you have chosen them, how they relate to EAD + EX1, what you want to learn from them etc.
    Don't waste time with ums and ahs - answer the questions with flair. The more comfortable you are and the more engaged you appear with your major work the better you will be.

    Hey guys!

    A pleasure to meet English enthusiasts! I'm doing a radio play based on 1950's American Consumerism and Existential thought.

    My friend, Hazelpug and my BOS best friend, does EX2!

    Hi, I'm Vanessa.

    I'm doing a TV script for my major work. My teacher wants a draft of the major work by the first few weeks of Term 1, so it'll be a busy summer for me

    I love Shakespeare! But it's not about him, just his prosody and structure and juxtaposition of purpose/style and shit

    Re: Roll Call - EX2 2015!

    Hi, everyone. I'm Baquillica, and I'm doing a poetry suite. It's a little scary, because it seems like most of the people in my grade are doing short stories, though there is one who's doing a critical. So far, I'm thinking confessional poetry.

    Just a question – does anyone have any idea of how to write a proposal? Because mine's due soon, and I have no idea how to write it. I know what I want to do, but I don't know the form of a proposal.

    It's alright. I'm in the same boat, but a bit worse. I'm also doing performance poetry- the first on this thread!
