The first week should be dedicated to revising and learning the basics of analysis. This will help you get the most out of the full analysis video tutorials down the track. Of course, this is just my recommendation. The course is yours after all!
If you're sitting on a grade of 5 or below, you should definitely read and watch all the material in
Read and watch the material in the order that is comfortable for you, but try to go sequentially. I've carefully organised the content in a way that is easiest for you to digest and understand.
If you're sitting on a grade of 6, you should go through specific topics which you are still a bit unclear about in
If you're sitting on a grade of 7 (Why are you here? Just kidding!) you should go through the Advanced Analysis content as well as anything else that you are unclear about before moving on to the Full Analysis videos.
In the video tutorials, I will show you exactly how to apply the analytical skills to real poems and prose extracts.
You will learn much more and much faster if you first attempt to tackle the texts by yourself. You'll be able efficiently discover specific gaps in your knowledge when you get around to seeing how I approach the exact same text.
You enrolled in this course because you want to improve yourself by doing something about your current situation. The next step is putting in the hard work to make those improvements become a reality.
The most important thing is practice. You must practise doing analysis.
To help you get as much practice as possible, I have created a set of exercises and mini-assignments for you to complete after every Full Analysis lesson.
