RUBRIC FOR THE AOS DISCOVERY
 “Students consider the ways composers
may invite them to experience
discovery through their texts and
explore how the process of
discovering is represented using a
variety of language modes, forms and
features.”
RURBIC FOR THE AOS –
DISCOVERY
 Students need to show their
understanding through the discussion of
their PRESCRIBED texts and a judicious
selection of a text of their own choosing
(RELATED MATERIAL)
 By choosing good related material
students can then clearly demonstrate a
sound or even complex understanding of
how the concept of DISCOVERY is
represented IN AND THROUGH TEXTS.
WHAT KINDS OF DISCOVERY?
 Initial discovery
WHAT KINDS OF DISCOVERY?
lost
forgotten

concealed
WHAT KINDS OF DISCOVERY?
 SUDDEN
 UNEXPECTED

 CAREFULLY PLANNED
WHAT KINDS OF DISCOVERY?
CURIOSITY
MOTIVATION
NECESSITY
WONDER
WHAT KINDS OF DISCOVERY?
EMOTIONAL
CREATIVE
INTELLECTUAL
PHYSICAL
SPIRITUAL
WHAT KINDS OF DISCOVERY?
Students also need to examine the
underlying assumptions about
DISCOVERY in and through the
texts
The texts exploring the notion of
DISCOVERY can be :
Confronting
Provocative
RESULTS OR EFFECTS OF
DISCOVERY
 NEW WORLDS
 NEW OR CHANGED VALUES
 STIMULATE NEW IDEAS
 SPECULATE ABOUT FUTURE
POSSIBILITIES
 NEW PERSPECTIVES
 NEW UNDERSTANDINGS
 RENEWED PERCEPTIONS
RELATED MATERIAL SELECTION
 Related is often the discriminating factor
between a student’s response really doing
well or not
 Related material needs to be of quality
and substance
 Texts which were previously on the HSC
list are always a good place to start and
point students towards if they request
some help with related material

SOME GUIDING PRINCIPLES
FOR RELATED MATERIAL
 Texts of the student’s own choosing
CANNOT be on the current HSC list
(anywhere).
 They should be showing that they are
widely read in a variety of text types:
therefore if their prescribed texts is a film,
DON’T do a film for their related material
 If they are doing a text from a book
series, television series or film franchise
then they can ONLY do ONE of the books,
episodes or films. No Harry Potter in
general or Lord of the Rings.
