Actually the teachers choose the journey type and text based on what they will be able to teach most effectively and what they can teach to the best of their ability and what they have the best resouces for.P_Dilemma said:In the 2004 HSC skrznecki was "by far" the "most popular choice". That's so full of you-know-what.
We aren't even given a choice. Where i'm from, some fatass (literally) that calls himself the Head Teacher of the English Faculty chose "Physical Journey" for the course and "Peter 'bloody-depressing-to-hell-polish-crappy-spelling-name' skrzynecki" as our damn text. Popular, my ass. Or his, lol.
These guys do it so the teachers can earn their money woth the least amount of effort. All they have to do is discuss ONE aspect to the class. A lot less work for the same money.
English has somehow turned into Economics...
Actually, you can use another compulsory text as related material.pLuvia said:Yes, you are not allowed to do related text that are compulsory texts in the Board of Studies Syllabus
And she probably said that because your school uses Huck Finn as a compulsory text for the standard class
