Analysis of Gwen Harwood's poems.
One of the most important things you can do to maximise your marks for the HSC is to create summary sheets with the integral information for each segment of a text. For example, if you’re studying Hamlet for Module B, you should have a summary sheet for each scene, or at the very least, for each Act. These will make revision much easier come exam time.
Creating summary sheets can also be a good way to consolidate your knowledge about a topic, and to find holes in your understanding which can then be filled. Below are links to two sample summary sheets for the poetry of Gwen Harwood (“The Violets” and “At Mornington”) created by a Matrix English tutor during their HSC year, and should provide a good standard to aim for with your own summary sheets.
