"winessing conflict through the eyes of others is important"
it is important to that we know about and document this history so that it's not forgotten and to prevent it from happening again i the future.
hearing the stories told by pam, rob and toni put the gravity of war into perspective. their stories allow us to see war through a different light other than the myths portrayed by government at the time.
Dear VCE 'Encountering Conflict' students,
This is a space for you to practise different forms of writing and responding to set prompts. When you write a piece you will need to indicate whether you are using The Secret River or The Rugmaker to inform your writing. You also need to provide a mini statement of explanation that outlines form, audience, purpose and context.
You will also be expected to read each others' work and use the comments feature and DIIGO (a web tool useful for conferencing) to provide feedback to each other. When conferencing you can comment about what is working well in the piece, areas for improvement and how you can see the prompt and nominated text influencing the piece. Due to this you might need to edit a post you have submitted so label each edit as post 1, post 2, etc.
