Vce literature essays - TNT Corlis
The new study design has opened VCE Literature to a world of ideas outside of the text. With a plethora of resources available, how do we choose meaningful and accessible literary criticism that will enrich our students’ understanding of texts? How do we then teach students to read and use this literary criticism to enrich their own interpretations? This workshop will provide some practical strategies to help teach views, values and contexts as well as approaches to using literary criticism in the classroom and the flipped-classroom.

Peter Pidduck has taught VCE English and Literature for many years now, and is currently Head of Senior English at Caulfield Grammar School, Wheelers Hill campus. While so much of his teaching is being squeezed through the lens of competitive study scores and league tables, he still believes that the teaching of literature matters beyond a bell curve. Peter urges students to recognise that to experience literature fully, there must be an awareness of the way words and their surrounding context interact, as only this can open the vicarious experiences that enrich and expand our narrow existence.
