Which will hold greater rule over you? Your fear or your curiosity?

Prescribed Text & Module/Elective: Billy Elliot - Area of Study (Common Module)

Related Text: Lana Wachowski's HRC Visibility Award Acceptance Speech

Type of text: Speech

Analysis/Comments: My analysis of the speech can be found here.

Disclaimer: During the time writing this analysis, it was adapted to the (old syllabus) Module C - Texts and Society. However, Billy Elliot is still a prescribed text in the new syllabus (HSC English AOS/Common Syllabus). Approach this analysis with caution.

You technically can (nothing is written explicitly within the standard syllabus saying you can't use advanced texts) BUT it's not encouraged to used advanced prescribed texts as related texts as a) there are heaps of sources and analysis of them online, in class and in books which brings me to my next point b) it will be unfair on the other students who've actually used time to analysed their own related texts.

What beatroot mentioned was great. Also if you use a prescribed text, you will be pitting yourself against all of the advanced students who have studied and analysed the text at school. There may be also a chance that your HSC marker has actually taught the text and will raise their expectations and knitpick at your analysis. Its always much safer to pick a related text that is very uncommon and this way you can even be a little off in your analysis without the marker realising.

Prescribed text: Billy Elliot

Related text: The Kite Runner (comic version)

Type text: comic (visual)

Comments: Super great for a related text if you want to drive your essay in a way of comparing similarities because these 2 have some moments of say same objects (letter) but convey different meanings. I just chose the comic version coz it has lots of visual elements to be compared to Billy Elliot being a film. Definitely recommend trying this, got 18/20 for my essay for this in common mod.

Prescribed Text & Module/Elective: Texts and Human Experiences (Common Module)

Related Text: Negative Space by Tiny Inventions

Type of text (ie: poem, film, etc): Short film

Analysis/Comments: Brilliantly written and beautifully made stop motion animation. Themes that you can use for analysis include family, relationships, expectations, loss/grief and acceptance. This text works great with Past the Shallows, Kenneth Slessor's poetry, The Boy Behind the Curtain and Billy Elliot.
