Discovery (AoS) MEGA THREAD
« on: January 16, 2017, 05:17:34 pm »
This thread will serve as a one stop shop for all the resources available on ATAR Notes for the Area of Study!

Asking Questions

- There are question threads set up for English Advanced and English Standard, where you can ask any manner of English question, including those related to the Area of Study.
- You can also start a new topic if you'd prefer to have your question separated from the rest, or if it is a little unique :)

Getting Feedback

- Our Creative Marking Thread is the place to post your Creative for some feedback from a Band 6 student!
- If you need an essay marked, you can post it in our AoS Essay Marking Thread. It can even just be a paragraph or two - Let us give you a hand!

Note that the above two threads are subject to our essay marking rules ;D

- On the other hand, if you just need some help setting up a Thesis or fleshing out your ideas, try our Thesis Statement Feedback and Discussion Thread.

Finding a Related Text

- We have a guide available on choosing the right related text, which is applicable not only to the AoS but also any other Module that requires a related text!
- For the AoS specifically, check out our list of suggested ORTs, you might even want to suggest your own!
