Text Response Essay
Essay topic: Clearly, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is an examination of the duality of human nature. Discuss. See Appendix 1 below for task sheet.
This developmental assessment framework was drawn from the Australian Curriculum English Scope and Sequence (ACARA, 2012). The sub-domains are from the Modes of skill and/or knowledge detailed in the scope and sequence. The Sub-Strand Focus from the curriculum was used for the strand and the capabilities are drawn directly from the Achievement Standards for Level 9. The AusVELS Elaborations come from the AusVELS English Curriculum (VCAA, 2013) and show a link between the two frameworks while also giving more detail about the capabilities.
