ENGL1100 – Introduction to Australian Literature83.6
This course was actually really interesting and provided a great scope of Australia both socially, culturally, and of course through literature. The novels were interesting, all Australian novels but all representing quite different things and written in different times. There is an overwhelming amount of set readings from the Australia Anthology though- if you do not keep up and GO TO TUTORIALS your final exam will be quite difficult. The way that the tutors speak about the set readings in the tuts is very useful, go to all the tutorials and take notes on anything and everything you can because there is about 40 set readings from the anthology and any one of them can be asked about in the open book exam.
Start up a study group and divide the readings during SWOTVAC, then spend the day together and go over all the readings and give each other notes to sticky note into the books to take in with you. Do the blackboard reading/blog post as you go, and use the information others talk about in the tuts/what the tutor says to inform you blog post and you will pass easily. Other than that there is also an essay which is interesting enough!
Textbook 100% necessary. Buy an old copy if you can as its expensive.
