A lot of content on the rubric and the context; more on the texts would have been beneficial for a first time teacher..

Intertextuality dealt with only on a general level. There is some good information on The Tempest, but not very much on Hag-Seed. The links between the two texts and the ‘conversation’ is looked into only superficially, with only an examination of the opening scene, which is a very small part of the so-called conversation.

The resources and content are very useful and will add effectiveness to the teaching of either or both of the texts. As a QLD teacher, the focus on comparison is less useful for our assessment related to this module, however, we will simply pick and choose which resources and ideas to utilise.

I have not taught this course before and I was interested to see the difference between the new HSC course and the comparative studies of previous years. I am new to the Tempest and Hag seed and I appreciate the quality and depth of the information and resources presented in this course.

I found this course to be a little disappointing. I would have liked to see some resources provided as well as audio lectures or some form of audio associated with the powerpoints. The information did not quite hit the mark with how to go about really teaching this difficult course and did not offer any resource support for teachers.

This is merely a program with some quality resources, rather than a pedagogical approach to teaching the Module. Even with the resources, there is nothing new and Hagseed has been left alone. Atwood’s context has not been explored in a deep way which is relevant to character, setting, etc.

The quality of the course allowed for detailed understanding of the texts which informed my understanding of how to assess, contextualise and deliver the Tempest and Hagseed. The course detailed The Tempest and it’s context. Strong resources that linked to the Tempest.
