Product Description

The aim of this book is to help students with information and support through Area of Study 3 of the VCE English course: Using language to persuade. This study is important because it's essentially assessed twice this year: analysing the use of language to persuade in selected media texts on an issue in Unit 3, and again in the exam. As well, students will be writing (and possibly speaking) a point of view on an issue themselves in Unit 3. This book will help students develop two things: an understanding of how language is used persuasively in the media, and a flexible and coherent system to help them analyse an unseen article under stressful, timed exam conditions. The design of this workbook encourages students to write notes and responses in the book itself, so that as they progress through the study, they build up a resource that will prove useful later, when they need to revise. Many of the exercises and ideas have come from material the authors have presented in their own Year 11 and Year 12 English classes. Since they have been tried, they'll prove true when teachers use them. You can use this book in a number of ways. Teacher may use it, and set exercises from it, as the class proceeds through the study. Equally, the authors have tried to construct something that students can use by themselves. From the first pages through to the final, ‘exam-style' samples, students could work through it – using the online resources, and where appropriate – develop their own understanding, at their own pace.
