Discuss the different views in the text and the representation of voices Try to agree on a statement that. explains the perspective of this Anthology,Personal Response. Class Reading Exercise Introduction by Rosie Scott. Divide the class into groups of four Every student should read the Introduction silently then one pupil. from each group should read the final three paragraphs aloud for the group After some discussion and. assistance from the teacher if necessary each group should complete the following statements. o This introduction is about,o We think the audience is. o A feature of this introduction that stands out is. o The last three paragraphs of the Introduction position the audience to. Each group should display their answers and allow others to read and consider them In a class discussion. explore the various summaries of this text and then allow students to write their own reflective response to. the Introduction,Key Elements of the Text,Synthesising Tasks. Reading Strategies Where do we find meaning Using the information gathered through. the class reading activity above students should begin to explore close readings of their allocated poem. Providing evidence or explanations for our response to poems is a critical skill in literary studies. Using the model of a Venn diagram teachers should discuss reading or the process of making meaning. of a text as a practice dependent on interpreting what we know and understand from. 1 our own knowledge or experience Reader s Context. 2 information about the writer s world Writer s Context. 3 the text s construction Text, Each of these can be represented by a circle in the Venn diagram.
It is often thought that the point at which these three circles intersect is where meaning is made but. sometimes our reading is influenced more by one of these aspects of reading than another. Teachers should have students cut out three circles and consider what is shaping their response through the. visual representation of the circles Which is most influential What within the circle informs your response. the most Students should write a summary of their reading as a formal exercise in class or at home. Having students practise this articulation of reading will be important throughout the Australian. Curriculum English course so this might be an activity that you return to and create more permanent. laminated circles for students,Close Study,Writer s Craft. Protest Writing What is it The form of protest writing that students would be most familiar with. is the protest song Students who have internet access in class might Google some of the instantly recalled. songs and listen to the lyrics In classes where this isn t possible or preferable teachers should provide. some copies of different songs used for protest with historical significance as well as some that students. might be familiar with Some significant Australian artists in this genre include Archie Roach Kev Carmody. Midnight Oil The Herd Yothu Yindi the John Butler Trio Redgum the Warumpi Band Helen Reddy and. Eric Bogle Students might also be familiar with international examples especially from the rap genre with. bands like N W A or Public Enemy, Explore the other forms of writing used for the purpose of protest and discuss possible reasons why. particular forms may be used over others These reasons might be related to audience context purpose. distribution and available technologies Once students are aware of the content and context of some well. known protest works ask them to contribute statements about what we expect to find in Australian protest. writing about war immigration policies the environment race gender class etc. Generic techniques and language devices Revision Each text in this Anthology uses form in. a very specific way There are short stories poems speeches letters memoirs declarations collections of. statements and essays Divide the class in groups to define these forms They do not need to come up with. complex or formal definitions but ones that outline the generic structures and devices This information. should be recorded in an accessible location in the classroom or online so that students can refer to. it throughout their study of this Anthology Once this information has been recorded and shared ask. students to reflect on the following question, Why do you think the Anthology combines so many forms of writing. Teachers should select a variety of texts to study as examples of their form This should include close. analysis of language features structural elements and rhetorical devices. Persona Voice Activity The voices in each of the texts in the Anthology are unique and distinct but. some are more powerful that others Using Rosalie Kunoth Monks statement on the ABC program Q A. analyse the how the persona is constructed and the voice communicated Page 23 of the Anthology. Genre and Structure Anita Heiss and Jeff McMullen both provide well considered structurally. effective and subtly affective arguments in this Anthology In groups of three students should jigsaw. one of these pieces of writing Each group member should read and take notes on different components. of the text a structure and argument b language and emotion and c perspective and contextual. connections When these three areas are reported and combined students should construct an essay using. Heiss and McMullen s work as a model and their three areas as their essay body paragraphs. Text and Meaning,Themes Handout, Below is a diagram listing some of the many themes and issues explored in the Anthology Provide this. diagram to students who should cut out the bubbles They may also add bubbles for other themes that. they feel are important Whenever reading texts students can have these cut outs with them to place on. the text where they feel the theme is revealed At the end of the piece students should summarise their. observations about the themes so that they are recorded for future reference. Synthesising task activity,1 Group Presentation, In groups of three students should select two contributions that they feel are connected through.
ideas themes forms structure or poetic devices In approximately five minutes groups should explain. the connections between the texts using close references to support comments and observations. 2 Response Close Reading, As an in class assessment provide students with a copy of A Statement Teachers should decide. the conditions of this assessment whether students will have a chance to prepare their response. annotate the poem or respond to the poem unseen Students should then answer the following. Explain how structural and language conventions work to influence an audience to agree. with a statement,Wider World,Ways of Reading the Text. World Literature, Western Australian writer and academic Kim Scott explores a number of Indigenous stories through his. influential novels and community centred projects He explores the Indigenous histories of the people he is. descended from considers the loss of cultural connection and values the continuation of language above. all We could say that the cultural concepts his work embodies could be lost through the Intervention. His work has been read by people of other indigenous cultures throughout the world who recognise the. connections between the circumstances of Australian Indigenous peoples and their own circumstances.

Comparison with other texts,Indigenous Connections. The poetry of Oodgeroo Noonuccal has been an important and powerful inclusion in the secondary English. canon of texts for study for an extended period This poetry is complex yet direct strong and tender. Compare the poems We Are Going and No More Boomerang to Ali Cobby Eckerman s four poems in this. Anthology Students should be directed to consider the poetic features of all of the works and how they. construct a political and cultural perspective,Bureaucratic Register.
Read the Yolngu Statement 24 June 2012 alongside the Stronger Futures legislation This is a protest not. only of ideas but also in relation to form and language Using the opening statements of the government. document analyse the use of language and the bureaucratic register Compare this to the Yolngu. Statement Ask students to reflect not only on the objections made by the statement but also on how the. way it has been written is able to make a statement about bureaucracy. Evaluation of the text as, Australian Enchantment Australia has always been a concept of the imagination as much as it. is a geographical entity From Indigenous conceptions of origin to European fascinations with a. great southern land ripe for discovery a series of good and bad enchantment stories have created. Australia within the world s imagination Students should explore how the works in this Anthology. connect with ideas of enchantment,o are there examples of enchantment in the texts. o which enchantment traditions are they connected to. o do they challenge the perceptions about Australia that have been established in world. literature, o what conclusions can be formed about reality and enchantment through reading this. collection,Rich Assessment Tasks, Comparative Study Debra Adelaide s Welcome to Country and P M Newton s 567 000 kms. driven Placing these two texts alongside each other creates a powerful juxtaposition After revising. the features of a short story and the construction of voice as a class students should read the two. texts closely with the following question in mind, Consider how voice and setting can be constructed differently to have a similar effect and.
response from an audience, Individual Writing Task Protest Poem After studying the genre of protest writing students. should construct their own example of the form In The Intervention Samuel Wagan Watson s. poem Intervention Rouge is very different in form and style to Lionel Fogarty s Philosophies. Exterminated Students should perform a close reading of both of these poems and experiment. with ways of explaining their own response to a concept related to the Intervention It is important. that students do not feel that they must encompass everything about this political decision or their. numerous objections to it Their connections might be thematic individual or even abstract. This task is focused on poetic form as much as the ideas it expresses Experimenting with form and<. Each text in this Anthology uses form in a very specific way There are short stories poems speeches letters memoirs declarations collections of statements and essays Divide the class in groups to define these forms They do not need to come up with complex or formal definitions but ones that outline the generic structures and devices
