Context Essay-Written Explanation
What is a written explanation?
A Written Explanation is a short introduction to your context piece. These Written Explanations are intended to provide your assessor an indication of what they should expect from your piece.
In your written statement you need to:
1. Explain the
FLAPC
of your piece:
F
orm,
L
anguage,
A
udience,
P
urpose,
C
ontext

2. Explain how you are drawing on texts in your response
FLAPC-Form
Form
(
expository, creative or persuasive essay) explain why you chose this form.

eg. 'I chose to write in an expository style, employing conventions of format and style of a traditional essay. This allows me to express my ideas in a logical order while adopting a sophisticated tone.'
FLAPC- Language
Language
1. Think about what type of language have you used and why (formal, informal, sophisticated, simple first or third-person).

2. Consider language techniques (repetition, rhetorical questions, metaphors, symbolism etc).

Eg. 'I have chosen formal language in an attempt to demonstrate a comprehensive and thoughtful piece. Inclusive words such as 'we' and 'us' have been incorporated to allow me to connect with the audience. Furthermore, my use of first-person perspective aims to add credibility to my argument.'
FLAPC-Audience
Audience
You must select a targeted audience for your essay (newspaper readers, young adults, teenagers).

Eg. 'My piece is to be published in an anthology for VCE students familiar with the subject matter and texts. As they have familiarity with the concepts I discuss, I intend for readers to depart with a greater understanding and appreciation of the ideas in my written piece.'
FLAPC- Purpose
Purpose
Discuss the message you would like to send to your audience (your contention/arguments in relation to the prompt).

Eg. 'The purpose of this essay is to demonstrate that our individual identities are inseparable from the groups we belong to.'
FLAPC- Context
Context
Provide a brief discussion of the basic ideas behind the Context.

Eg. 'In this essay, I explored the idea that 'Belonging shapes a person's identity'. Every person is shaped by their experiences, and belonging to a group is something that can have a profound influence on a person's identity.
Explain your use of the
text:
Explain how you are drawing on the selected texts for ideas and/or arguments.

Eg. This persuasive text draws on the film 'Witness', particularly drawing on the tension between the unusual life of the Amish and the modern outside world.
