Hi esheshseshsesh! I would suggest reading/watching all your texts, and start some kind of theme organiser for yourself. The easiest way is to do a quick google and see what main themes there are, and then assigning some kind of colour coding system so you can easily find quotes and etc according to thematic concerns!

For the argument analysis portion of the year, I suggest reviewing all your persuasive techniques/devices, and create vocabulary verb banks for analysis. I have a few here as a sample (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1640160119357907&type=3) but I'm sure you can make your own as well :)

All the best for next year! (And don't forget to take a break!)

Hey! For the summer holidays before the second term of year 12, I would get together a template essay/paragraphs for the text you have studied in term 4. Or if you prefer memorising quotes and writing analysis on the day, then possibly create a quotes table. By the time you get to trials, you will be ahead of other students who may need to prepare for that text from scratch. For example, I did 1984 and wrote 5 paragraphs on different themes over the summer holidays, out of which I can choose 3 on the day of the exam and mould to the question. Remember to mainly relax! Hope it helps :)

Hey,

I would recommend reading all of your texts twice:
-  once to understand them better/for background and creating a short summary of each chapter.
- twice to annotate/analyse them more deeply, search up and note down words you don't know used in the texts etc
Luke 9:25 "What does it profit them if they gain the whole world, but lose or forfeit themselves."

Matthew 6:27 "And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?"

Hey!!! I've recently started a blog for VCE students where I'll be writing weekly giving FREE advice on how to improve - especially in the holidays - to get a head start and truly improve your writing. If you subscribe - you get emails on your newsletter whenever I post. For context, I got a 45 ss and wrote an ATAR NOTES text guide (7 stages of grieving). Hope that helps, I'd love for anyone to check it out!

You should also be having a good shot at the holiday homework you've been set, as well as getting yourself organised for the main elements of the Units you'll be focused on for the year. You can post your efforts here for feedback.
