The following is a sample of part of what I incorporate in a text response unit. This is an extract of a booklet that I made for teaching our Year 12 text, 'Burial Rites'. There are sections on each chapter, characters, themes and symbols. There are also essay planning grids and quotations at the back. The aim is for students to have most of what they need in one place, but also for them to annotate it themselves.
For the chapter section, students are set homework whereby they research different aspects of the chapter. During the following class we then share our ideas and collate it to form our notes for the chapter. Here are some sample pages. The black writing is what is printed in the booklet initially and the purple writing is what the students write, and what I have typed, from our class discussions.
