Did you guys make notes for Discovery? Also what's a good related text for Life of Pi?
Thanks peeps
You can pick ANY text as your related text and it's good to be unique (not do a common one) so the marker knows you have skills in choosing and analysing an uncommon related text (instead of picking a common one and getting all your quotes online) and also they won't know the text so you can change stuff if you need to.

Main thing when picking a related text is for it to be closely related to your prescribed text and if you're doing 2 themes for a prepared essay pick one that relates to those two. For example I'm doing motorcycle diaries and my 2 themes are nature and human experience so I'm going to pick a related text that fits those two themes easily which means it'll be easy to relate to motorcycle diaries in the essay.

I have my first speech task on Monday, and I'm in the process of finding quotes and suitable thesis points.
The assessment question is: Embracing the opportunities we have to discover or rediscover ourselves is the key to self-awareness
." How is this point of view represented in your set text and one other text of your choosing? ( Max 4 mins- suggested word limit 650 words)

Our core is the Tempest, and I've chosen the Perks of being a Wallflower film. I've decided to address emotional discovery, self-revenge/ awareness and reconciliation. Does anyone have any extended ideas for addressing the question about the two text types?

Firstly, I would advise you to start preparing for assessment tasks earlier than 3 days before it is actually due.
Secondly, choosing texts that you are confident of talking about is important, I feel like you have chosen the related text before you are confident you can analyse it.
Thirdly, you can have two thesis addressing both parts of the question, one on how embracing opportunities we have to discover ourselves is the key to self-awareness, and the other is about embracing opportunities we have to rediscover ourselves, you can then specify the type of opportunities, or the circumstances under which such opportunities arise.

Unprovoked discoveries can prove to have the most significant impact on an individual. These discoveries can offer renewed perceptions of the past, awaken us to new perspectives of the present, and enable us to speculate on future possibilities.
