Module A: Experience Through Language
In their responding and composing, students consider various types and functions of voices in texts. They explore the ways language is used to create voices in texts, and how this use of language affects interpretation and shapes meaning. Students examine one prescribed text, in addition to other related texts of their own choosing that provide examples of distinctive voices.
Elective: Distinctive Voices
This module requires students to explore the uses of a particular aspect of language. It develops students’ awareness of language and helps them understand how our perceptions of and relationships with others and the world are shaped in written, spoken and visual language. (Refer to the English Stage 6 Syllabus, p 30.)
language of film: visual and sound
One Night the Moon
Something that I keep grabbing onto that I read in one of my father’s books was that he feels like the perfect Australian – the perfect white Australian – would be someone who could embrace Indigenous culture as part of their culture, perhaps know an indigenous language and know the history of indigenous people and claim that as part of their cultural heritage by being born in this country. And I think that will be the new era of relationships between us for, not to just forgive and move on or whatever, but to actually embrace each other and belong to each other in a way that we haven’t before. So, I think the film is part of that, and certainly One Night the Moon is a part of that. It’s a shared history.
‘…she also serves to signal how white Australians might come to find some redemption and comfort with Indigenous Australians. We need to surrender to the lure and mysteries of the country, leave the safety of our parental culture, come into communion with the land and its natives and die to our colonial past’ Palmer and Gillard "Aborigines, Ambivalence and Australian Film"
