Event details: 2018 VCE VOICE - Beyond the Formula. The Comparative Essay: Ungainly Monster or Thrilling Life Form?

Bookings close:

How do we get beyond the lists for comparison which students borrow from study guides or teacher ideas? How do we break the “theme” prison? How do we develop students’ capacity to produce responses that aren’t dry and formulaic?

This workshop will be a half day session. Teachers will have modelled for them a range of innovative and practical ideas for working with students. They will consider the bigger ideas to support students in navigating a comparative manner of thinking, as well as exploring essay writing through sample responses.

The aim is to have a model of teaching which enables students to think deeply and develop analytical essays that are fresh with ideas and rich with the deeper understanding of the student voice, which is required by the VCE English Study Design.
