Nothing about readings in there.... "Other's perspectives" simply refers to critics and reviews. Not a Marxist or feminist reading.syllabus said:Module B: Critical Study of Texts
This module requires students to explore and evaluate a specific text and its
reception in a range of contexts. It develops students’ understanding of questions of textual integrity.
Each elective in this module requires close study of a single text to be chosen from
a list of prescribed texts. Students explore the ideas expressed in the text through analysing its construction, content and language. They examine how particular features of the text contribute to textual integrity. They research others’ perspectives of the text and test these against their own understanding and interpretations of the text. Students discuss and evaluate the ways in which the set work has been read, received and valued in historical and other contexts. They extrapolate from this study of a particular text to explore questions of textual integrity and significance.
Students develop a range of imaginative, interpretive and analytical compositions
that relate to the study of their specific text. These compositions may be realised in a variety of forms and media.
Basically, this all says: Don't use 'readings'. They aren't specified in the syllabus, and they're being warned against by the marking centre.marking centre said:For too many candidates critical readings about the text have been substituted for study of the text. In many scripts, the `readings' seem to be a barrier placed between the candidate and the text. Many responses suggested that candidates had prepared for the examination but not for the expectations of Module B. It was evident that candidates needed to be more aware of the requirements of this module as well as responding more thoroughly to the advice provided in previous `Notes from the Marking Centre'.
that was a dumb thing to say...u dont get marked down if u did three the just dont consider the third one as long as u answer the question and the rubrics you should get full markskisschasysunday said:i like speeches. question was straight-forward, marking is straight forward. i wish they said to use three speeches though. i always prepared for three, using Socrates, Goldman and then McAleese as a contrast to the others. So I didn't know what to do in the exam, as I didn't have techniques for McAleese, just a thematic contrast. But I used her's and Socrates anyway. Hope I do okay, Speeches has always been the reason I do well in Advanced.
To those that did three anyway, I'm pretty sure you get marked down, but not as much as you would if you did less than what was specified.
