Module C: Elective 2 - Exploring Transitions
In this elective, students
explore and analyse
a
variety of texts
that portray th
e ways in which individuals experience transitions into new phases of life and social contexts
. These
transitions may be challenging, confronting, exciting or transformative
and
may result in growth, change
and a
range of consequences for the individual and others.
Through exploring their prescribed text and other related texts of their own choosing, students consider
how transitions can result in new knowledge and ideas, shifts in attitudes and beliefs
, and
a deepened understanding of the self and others.
Students respond to and compose a range of texts that
expand our understanding of the experience of venturing into new worlds.

Listening to Michael Jackson in Teheran by Ali Alizadeh
•This poem presents a clear disconnection between the persona’s cultural setting within a totalitarian society and his attempt to break free from its demands.
•The epiphanic moment of finding out he is not the only one who dares to “listen to Michael Jackson” is humourous yet full of insight.
•The poem will allow students to enquire into a defiant individual and group, and their “rebellious” transition into free thinking in the face of the Irani’s government’s oppression and excessive control in the 1980’s.

Article: From hunters to protectors: The Lion Guardians and a story of changing perceptions
In this article, a traditional African tribe’s customs about lion hunting are altered as they join a conservation group to monitor and preserve lions numbers, as the tribe faces an unprecedented decrease in the population of lions.
This practice served as both a rite of passage for younger males and as a vehicle to attain an improved status within their community.
For this tribe, there is a clear shift from performing traditional behaviours to gaining new understandings of the significance of preservation in terms of their own sustainability

This will make your workload much more manageable and you will have less texts you have to remember walking into the HSC.
Ideally you will need two ORTs
for each module that
cover all possibilities from the Rubric.
Use the table below to help you prepare your study notes.
