In a speech of 2.5 -3 minutes students must analyse their chosen text with regards to: •What the text says about belonging
•How the composer’s language techniques shape a sense of belonging or not belonging •How this piece links to their core text (As You Like It, Strictly Ballroom) •The ways in which their material has broadened and deepened their understanding of themselves and the world
Students will also need to submit a reflection statement of 200 words in hard copy on the day. Their reflection should answer the following: •‘How has your understanding of Belonging been enhanced by your study of your related text.’
A written copy of the speech and reflection statement must be submitted before the beginning of your oral. Students without a written copy will have 10% of available marks deducted for each day late.
