HSC English Workshop: Comprehension & Craft of Writing | lunedì, 06. luglio 2020

Ignite's HSC English Comprehension and Craft of Writing workshop will provide students studying the HSC English course (Advanced and Standard) with a practical breakdown of the essential skills needed for both Section I of the Common Module (Comprehension) and Module C of Paper 2: The Craft of Writing. The workshop will be run by Ignite co-founders: Jonny and Leila, who specialise in exam strategy for the HSC English course. Given the new structure of the exam, this workshop is a great opportunity for students to learn exactly what is required (and how to achieve it) for each of these sections of the exam.



The workshop will be split into two parts:

1. Comprehension (Section I: Texts & Human Experiences)

2. Craft of Writing (Module C)



Comprehension

During the workshop, students will be taught the most efficient way to achieve full marks in response to the various types of questions that could be asked in a comprehension paper. They will learn how to quickly identify techniques used by composers for different text types, how to explain the meaning of those techniques (and/or quotes) in relation to a given question, and how to structure a response for a given mark allocation.

Craft of Writing

The Craft of Writing session will be focussing on how to respond to different stimuli for an imaginative/persuasive/discursive piece of writing and how to structure a band 6 reflection . We will go over various examples and give students an opportunity to practice the skills themselves.
