Don’t start contemplating a new career just yet.
Grab a warm soothing cup of tea and perhaps an indulgent looking biscuit and let’s begin for today…
Last week you chose your Year 12 texts:
1 x Prose Fiction
1 x Poetry OR Drama
1 x Nonfiction OR Film OR Media
2 x Module C short texts
5 Prescribed Texts in Total
Although the Year 12 course does not begin until Term 4 of 2018, you do need to plan from now. You have 5 prescribed texts, so you require 5 teachers to take responsibility for a text each.
What is required of each teacher?
Your Year 11 texts for 2018
The syllabus states to:
“complete the common module as the first unit of work.”
Advanced – Common Module – Reading to Write (p.36 Advanced Syllabus)
From Rubric: “…careful selection of critical and creative texts.”
You need to read the whole rubric but at this stage you are thinking, what texts do we use NOW that we can use for this Module?
A very important question you must ask yourself first – is it on the H.S.C prescribed list? If it is, then you CANNOT use it!
Conveniently enough, I have created lessons and activities based on this Module.
Reading to Write: Five Authors Package #1:
Reading to Write: Five Authors Package #2
Four Packages will be available in total plus a Program by the end of Term 2, 2017.
While you’re there, sort through the FREEBIES that are on offer:
Obviously now, you need to do the same thing for both the Standard Common Module and English Studies Mandatory Module.
Standard – Common Module – Reading to Write: Transition to Senior English
(p.46 Standard Syllabus)
English Studies – Mandatory Module – Achieving through English: English in education, work and community (p.52 English Studies Syllabus)
Daunting, isn’t it?
Perhaps we should talk about the Year 11 Modules next week, so that you are not overwhelmed?
