Diving Deep into External Assessment

Student (and teacher) event: Diving Deep into the Analytical Essay

Pre-recorded materials open to registered participants from 3pm,  with live discussion in half hour blocks from 4pm - 5:30pm. Live discussions will primarily relate to Writing the Analytical Essay, but students will be free to ask questions about their selected texts. Discussions will not be recorded.
Students can view the sessions in real time with their teachers on Wednesday afternoon. Or classes can access the materials to run their own workshops later. Students can also register independently.


Student Webinar A

Writing the Analytical Essay will explore: interpreting the question, the structure and language features of the literary interpretation, building an argument, and using evidence to strengthen your response. Our aim is that students and their teachers will use what they learn to help plan their preparation for those crucial last weeks before the exam. Our carefully crafted script for this session brings together the combined thinking of experienced ETAQ representatives.


Student Webinar B

Deep Dives into the Literature: 30 minute prescribed text webinars presented by expert academics whose brief is to: be fascinating and passionate about the text; pose interesting questions; offer deeper and less predictable insights on central themes; suggest a theme that might not have been covered in the classroom; and provide some strong examples of aesthetic features and stylistic devices that link to a range of ideas. The full speaker line-up is almost in place, so watch this space for the details.

Launch Date

Wednesday 9th September from 3pm and pre-recorded material will be available online from that date until 26 October

Details of the program will be released by Monday 20th July and registrations will open after that date.

Cost

We expect all/most registrations will be for class/school groups. Member's price for a class of up to 25 students is $40. Individual students will be able to register at a price of $10 per person.
