Assessment Type 3: Comparative Analysis (WR5)

(Attachment)

The comparative analysis must be a product of independent study but it is appropriate for the teacher to advise and support in choosing texts to compare, and design a question or topic on which to base your response.

You will complete a written comparative analysis of two texts and evaluate how the language features, stylistic features, and conventions in these texts are used to represent ideas, perspectives, and/or aspects of culture, and to influence audiences.

These texts must be selected from within or across the following categories:

• extended texts

• film texts

In completing the comparative analysis, you must not use texts read or viewed in other parts of the assessment program. However, you may use texts that are similar in type and purpose.

How will you choose your texts?

To ensure that the texts have the necessary level of complexity to write up to 2000 words, you are advised to refer to the recommended list of novels and films at this link: https://www.sace.sa.edu.au/documents/652891/3533774/Recommended+text+list.docx/34084e56-f93b-4ce1-9255-4321c5649315

The following websites may also be useful in the decision process:

https://www.goodreads.com

http://www.imdb.com

How will you present your response?

The comparative analysis must be in the form of a written comparative essay.

Comparative Essay

Some sample questions:

1. In what ways do (names of creators) develop the idea of (name the idea) in (title of text) and (title of text), respectively?

2. The texts, (title and creator) and (title and creator), both explore the idea of (name the idea). Discuss the ways the creators have used language and stylistic features to present the idea and shaped the audience’s response.

3. Compare the ways in which (name of creator) and (name of creator) have explored different perspectives of the same ideas in their respective texts.
