Select one of the three issues (one that you have not looked at in much detail yet).
Choose TWO texts: one WRITTEN PERSUASIVE text and one VISUAL TEXT and compare the two in the following task.
In a coherently constructed piece of prose, analyse how the use of argument and language in both the written and visual texts are used to attempt to position readers in particular ways. 600-700 words
You are effectively creating your own sample SAC in the style of the paper on Canvas.
TO SEE A SAMPLE PAPER:
1. Log in to Canvas (via internet: mhs.instructure.com)
2. Go to course modules section. There should be a blue banner – choose ‘Analysing and Presenting Arguments from the list.
2. Download ‘Sample Outcome 2 Task Paper’ – this is what the exam will look like.
There will be two components to the end of semester exam:
1. Comparative argument analysis (based on two or more texts at least one of these is will be a visual.
2.Presentation of an argument (a response to one of the three issues studied in the weeks leading up to the assessment)
Week beginning 22 May: three weeks prior to the exam (scheduled for 13 June), teachers will provide students with three common issues decided upon by the year level teachers.
Students are allowed to research material for the persuasive arguments.
Classwork will obviously involve practice argument and language analyses and points of view tasks set from these three issues.
The exam: ONE of the three issues will be set for the exam.
Only the print and visual texts will be on the exam paper. Additional material to support Part B will not be provided as students have had the three week lead up time to be conversant with the issues.
Since I am away:
Students should complete the following work from their red textbook ‘Analysing and
Presenting an Argument’
Read and complete the following tasks:
3.14, 3.16, 3.17, 3.19 (David Morrison’s speech)
p.37 VERBAL ATTACKS AND RIDICULE
