You did have to use the entire collection of poems for full marks. The way they wanted it answered was that you use ONE poem as the backbone of your piece of writing and link it with the other poems.Casmira said:I wrote 6 pages, it was fucking easy! very iffy question though, i almost thought you'd have ot do 1 poem but I did all 6
i linked them all with techniques/tones, did example etc..., I told my teacher she reckons I prob got 18+ if i linked them
If I remember the question correctly then yes, you had to use the entire collection, not just one or two poems.koopatrooper said:you cant be serious can you? we had to use all the poems???? God... there goes any chance i had of good marks.
Shit I only wrote one paragraph, I couldn't be bothered wasting time for 5 marks with knowledge of just two poems indepth. So I moved onto the next section.koopatrooper said:shit.... *runs away and cries*
Actually it only asked for ONE poem. We had a list of poems to choose from though.Casmira said:my teacher told me you had to do all 6 for decent marks, unless you analysed Dulce very thoroughly you'd get probably half the marks
my teacher really knows her shit well for poetry, she doesnt communicate it well because my english class has (should say had, no more english classes for me) a bunch of dumbshits in the back row pissing her off so she never came into the class calm
alot of english teachers are hsc markers, its the most popular exam hence they need as many teachers as possible
imo if you went a few paragraphs in ALL the poems, and then concluded it well (ie. tone of each poem) you'd probably hit the nail on the head, however doing a few poems but analysing them deeply you'd prob. get the marks as well, it says your prescribed poems (note; plural) as a WHOLE, you could of done 2 and say yep Last laugh/send off's main personification blah blah ...
haha i had hyperlinks.. >_< so ppl could click to view the poem...a contribution to an online HSC Resources site.
