If I were to suggest a related text - and what I used for my HSC throughout the year - I would suggest the short film Shelter. I think the fact is that the moral of the short film resonated well with me and I had a firm grasp of what the short film was trying to convey. In fact, Ive watched the short film so many times and liked it so much that by the time I went into my exam I didn't need to recall specifically preset techniques or quotes, since I could just pick whatever scene and analyse it on the spot.

I dont think its ever been used before, but i think its quite a nice choice especially if your aiming to go for a sense of discovery through emotions and emotional interactions.

PS If anyone needs some analysis of a few quotes for that short film, I can write them up, just let me know

You could pop it over on the related text suggestions thread for other people to check out.
I'll check out this film soon. Can i just google "shelter" and it'll come up or what?

I don't know about any of barack obama's speeches, but i found a speech by Ronald Regen regarding the challenger disaster which i reckon would be a solid related text!

Hey :)
Just wondering what robert frost poem would directly relate to the Speech on the Disaster Challenge?
I was thinking of maybe doing the 'Tuft of Flowers' but I wasn't sure if it was a very good choice...

Thanks!

It was a speech by American President, Ronald Regen regarding the NASA shuttle challenger, which exploded 90 seconds after being launched. He made the speech during a national address regarding the disaster.
Jamon posted a link to the actual speech above ^^^^

Okay, so im trying to find a related text for "wheather a discovery is unexpected or emerges from careful planning it can still reveal suprising consequences" Can anyone help??
Elyse-can you recconmend a good one from the list?
Im also looking for a text that has this in it, but also has other types of discoveries (something well rounded) to use throughout my hsc

Hi there :)

I'm doing Bill Brysons 'A short history of nearly everything,' that is basically a novel about various scientific discoveries and their impact on society. i think it could work well for your question, as it critiques the objectivity of science and instead champions that discovery is a much more organic and haphazard process. It does this by giving us the personal and more human side of famous scientists and their discoveries - like newtons 'discovery' of gravity and some other guys discovery of a tpe of bacteria in our gut - suggesting that discoveries are not at all predictable or measureable, as the nature of science is, but rather more spontaneous. Its a great text to compare the two types of disovery - planned and unplanned.

Hope this helps in some way  :)
