English Comparative Text Resources - Students

Our English Comparative Resources have been prepared by experienced senior VCE English teachers who have studied and taught these texts for many years.

  • Our Comparative Text Analysis Guide will cover all aspects of the Comparative Text Analysis components for Years 11 & 12 of the New English Study Design that has been implemented across Units 1 to 4.
  • Our Comparative Text Summary Notes delve into the heart of the text by detailing the key areas of the text. Our Text Study Maps are an exciting product for VCE English produced only by TSSM.
  • Rather than just summarising the key ideas of each text into notes (which we have also done), we have gone one step further to create a learning aid for more visual learners. The Text Study Maps are an A1 size concept map poster.

Exclusive benefits of our Text Study Maps include:

  • Accelerate and improve their learning.
  • Improve their recall of facts by up to 500%.
  • Mirror brain functionality.
  • Enhance their creativity and focus.
  • Incorporate colours, images and key ideas.
  • Target exam related topics.
  • Connect important concepts.
  • Be provided with a revolutionary new method of learning.

Text Summary Notes and Study Maps are issued with copyright protection and therefore cannot be reproduced in any format and schools are NOT permitted to upload these resources on the school intranet.
