VCE Voice...Beyond the Formula

Raise Your Voice: Crafting, Presenting and Analysing Argument

Date: Friday 21 April 2017

Time: 9am - 3.30pm

Venue: VATE Conference Room, 2/134-136 Cambridge Street, Collingwood

Join us as we speak to GetUp! Human Rights Campaign Director, Shen Narayanasamy, about how to make people listen to the issues that matter in our society today but also how the media positions the reader through different viewpoints and where those different viewpoints come from. Indeed, how can the power of the media be utilised to amplify the concerns of ordinary citizens in the face of a political machinery that oftentimes threatens to grind down the values we stand for as a nation? How does the world of business and power and counter-movements manipulate the media? How can we – and most importantly our students read this media critically and raise our voices and be heard? Shen will also focus on the intricacies of communication in a social media age, navigating our way through the potential and the pitfalls of the modern technological world, where fake news and confirmation bias and citizen journalists reign supreme.

How can we, as teachers, help steer the course with our students, harnessing critical, creative and caring action to build our communities? This day will also provide the opportunity to hear from experienced VCE English examiner, Karen Graham, as she details the Analysing and presenting argument outcomes as part of the new Study Design. Finally practicing teacher, Marjan Mossammaparast, will offer some ideas and strategies for the classroom.
