For Students and Parents (Years 9, 10 and 11)
I will be holding 5 to 6 classes on Saturday/Sunday that will focus on Year 12 students/books. This is the best chance for students in Years 10 and 11 to do some intensive/advanced work. We have done plenty of language analysis (and we’ll continue to improve these skills and perfect our metalanguage/expression). An excellent way to make a significant improvement is to choose 1-2 extra texts and study these with my Year 12 students. Where possible, I will organise some extra classes on Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet/Macbeth) and excerpts from a range of significant texts.
I am working out the times of these classes 2017. The most popular texts are:
(Short) Plays: Medea (Euripides), The Crucible (Arthur Miller)
Novels: 1984 (George Orwell); Stasiland (Anna Funder); Ransom (David Malouf); I am Malala; The White Tiger (Aravinda Adiga); Year of Wonders (Geraldine Brookes)
Thursday class (7-8 pm): Medea, Stasiland and 1984
Saturday 11.30 am : This Boy’s Life, Stasiland and 1984
Sunday 4.30 pm: The Crucible and Year of Wonders
