Stage 6 Syllabus Rubric Area of Study - Key Points An Area of Study is the exploration of a concept that affects our perceptions of ourselves and our world. O explore, analyse, question and articulate the ways in which perceptions of this concept are shaped in and through a variety of texts. (Use of language) O explore and examine relationships between language and text, and interrelationships among texts. (Links or connections in and between texts) O examine closely the individual qualities of texts while considering the texts’ relationships to the wider context of the Area of Study. (Think about the individual ideas of the text but also connect them to belonging) O synthesise ideas to clarify meaning and develop new meanings. (look at all the ideas and come up with your own conclusions about belonging – EVALUATE)
The Area of Study provides students with opportunities to explore, assess, analyse and experiment with: O meaning conveyed, shaped, interpreted and reflected in and through texts (language and ideas) O ways texts are responded to and composed (different texts, audience, purpose, and construction) O ways perspective may affect meaning and interpretation (different ways of seeing) O connections between and among texts (similarities and differences) O how texts are influenced by other texts and contexts. (CONTEXT!)
Related Material: In addition, students will explore texts of their own choosing relevant to the Area of Study. Students draw their chosen texts from a variety of sources, in a range of genres and media.
Stage 6 Syllabus Rubric Belonging- Key Points These ideas should be at the core of your analysis. Use these dot points as a scaffold for your revision of The Crucible and your related texts. O explore the ways in which the concept of belonging is represented in and through texts. O Perceptions and ideas of belonging, or of not belonging, vary. O These perceptions are shaped within personal, cultural, historical and social contexts. O A sense of belonging can emerge from the connections made with people, places, groups, communities and the larger world. The next two points will allow you to demonstrate depth of understanding about the concept of belonging as you will move from identifying aspects of belonging within to identifying the social and cultural aspects of belonging that the text as a whole represents.
Within this Area of Study, students may consider aspects of belonging in terms of experiences and notions of identity, relationships, acceptance and understanding. O Texts explore many aspects of belonging, including the potential of the individual to enrich or challenge a community or group. O They may reflect the way attitudes to belonging are modified over time. O Texts may also represent choices not to belong, or barriers which prevent belonging. O Perceptions and ideas of belonging in texts can be constructed through a variety of language modes, forms, features and structures.
