No Powerplay is easy as ABC! i think it is the easiest module im doing. In the wild is ok, but Yeats (module B) is horribleIvich said:YES! completely agree on that. unlike the other modules, this one is so random and u never know which question they will throw at you when it comes to power, because to me, its so broad.
I'll be waiting for you success with the argument with HSCAdvice line.*Baby-K* said:Module B: Critical Study of Texts
[FONT=CHLLI P+ Helvetica,Helvetica]This module requires students to explore and evaluate a specific text and its reception in a range of contexts. It develops students’ understanding of questions of textual integrity.
Each elective in this module requires close study of a single text to be chosen from a list of prescribed texts.
Students explore the ideas expressed in the text through analysing its construction, content and language. They examine how particular features of the text contribute to textual integrity. They research others’ perspectives of the text and test these against their own understanding and interpretations of the text. Students discuss and evaluate the ways in which the set work has been read, received and valued in historical and other contexts. They extrapolate from this study of a particular text to explore questions of textual integrity and significance.
Students develop a range of imaginative, interpretive and analytical compositions that relate to the study of their specific text. These compositions may be realised in a variety of forms and media.
Where does it actually say- no readings?
Man try doing Citizen Kane ffs. Reading the past papers, it seems as though KL and the rest would be easily moulded to the question. I hope they throw in something about relationships, because ultimately, that is what CK Kane is about!Kalashnikov47 said:No Powerplay is easy as ABC! i think it is the easiest module im doing.

i wouldnt stress over it too much. be glad you know this now, and not an hour after u waled out of the exam roomdanz90 said:Will do. lol
Look, overall I think that people that have placed large emphasis on readings will not get great marks, lets face it.... but then again remember the 'positive marking' thing. if we still show some sort of personal interpretation, close anaysis of the text by shakespeare... talk about textual integrity and yadda yadda.. relate back to question, we should be set with like 14 or 15/20. lol
i think i'll leave module b till last on monday...
unless the question is good and 'answerable'.
awesome... thanks for that dudeshakky15 said:i wouldnt stress over it too much. be glad you know this now, and not an hour after u waled out of the exam room
basically, they got rid of the focus on readings because, as your previously outlined structure of ur response showed, people were analysing the reading and applying the reading to the text and talking about the reading and reading reading reading etc..
the purpose of this module (the reason its called the 'critical study') is because they want YOU to have a deep understanding of the text and its construction. You need to be intimate with it basically lol.. and im waiting to see how many inappropriate retorts that statement gets...
so yer i would basically treat this module like the area of study. basically write an essay arguing a thesis, and try and make it a bit more personal (but dont lose the sophistication). I wouldnt throw out the readings though, just mention them every now and then and describe why the reading influenced ur appreciation of the text.
I read some exemplars published by the BOS and some didnt even MENTION readings. like i mean, they didnt even have one word of readings in there at all.. and they were high range responses
im sure in the past they expected the whole readings thing. but not anymore coz it disconnected the students own engagement and enjoyment of the text and wat it meant to them. Its just that older english teachers who taught the older syllabus still havent shaken off the fact that the readings arent necessary anymore.
lol actually i started to realise a few days ago...approached my teacher.. and shes like nah nah don't worry what you're doing is fine. make sure the readings are really prominent bla bla. i guess, like u said.. she's still sticking to her methods of the older trends.shakky15 said:hope it helped
a few days ago i thought it was just as much about the readings as everyone else.
yer good point. well i think your meant to consult different readings while u critically analyse the text. Its just that they dont want u to waffle on about the readings in ur response.danz90 said:lol actually i started to realise a few days ago...approached my teacher.. and shes like nah nah don't worry what you're doing is fine. make sure the readings are really prominent bla bla. i guess, like u said.. she's still sticking to her methods of the older trends.
but BOS are idiots for not explicitly making sure all students find out that readings shouldn't be the focus of your critical study. everyone i've spoken to about this module says the BOS syllabus wording is so ambiguous.
like - when it talks about the texts reception in a range of different contexts - doesnt that bluddy mean how it is read in diferrent directorial representations such as family psychological reading (richard eyre - 1998 production, ie modern 20th century production)
how the hell do we exactly address THAT dotpoint of the rubric?
np and yeh ill probably give them a call too...danz90 said:lol im calling up HSC advice line again tomorrow for the n-th time... im going to clarify the structure of the response.... and what they want from that 2nd rubric point (evaluate the texts reception in a range of different contexts).
thanks again for ur help shakky
they are apparently 'experienced teachers'...shakky15 said:np and yeh ill probably give them a call too...
are they just average teachers or syllabus writers etc..?
The best part is making up your own wacky theories! It sucks that some of you have teachers that didn't emphasise that aspect of the course... the first thing our teacher told us was that this module was all about personal responseShadose said:i sufferred so much from having to accept those readings and don't even get the fun part :'(
