Y12 Literature PREP – T1 Week 1

Greetings upon your return to our journey of literary learning!

I wanted to start by telling everyone who has sent me their reviews of Chinatown that you are awesome! It was great to see how quickly you got onto it after classes this week! Also, if you did it over the break, you are most certainly awesome, too.

The PREP for this week is as follows:

  1. Check the post for holiday PREP and complete as much of that as you possibly can.
  2. Read the chapter from the textbook on Film and take some summary notes.
  3. Download the study design from VCAA site and print the outcomes for Unit 3 &4 to put into your folder.
  4. Arrange your folder for class on Monday.

Here are the lesson plans for this week and for our first class next week for anyone who was away or wants to go over what we did -> Y12 Literature Lessons W1T1

Please keep doing your best to complete all of the set PREP tasks, and if you aren’t sure of something, email me or comment on this post ASAP, rather than wait to tell me in class.

Also, don’t forget that there will be a class at lunch on Thursdays for people to get reading or PREP completed. Or just for any general assistance or inquiries about ¬†class work.
