1. Background – What is a creative response task within an English course?
The creative response in this Communications course provides an opportunity for students to respond both analytically and creatively, in a creative medium of their choice, to a specific literary text.
2. The Task
You must produce one creative work and an accompanying rationale that addresses the following headings (see next section) of between 800 and 1000 words.
3. What is the rationale?
The rationale is a written explanation of the creative work as either a short essay or a series of well-crafted, paragraphs. It can take a written or non-written form depending on the choice that you make. It should address the following headings:
Creative/artistic intent
• Explain your own creative/artistic intent. Discuss the messages and ideas that you are hoping to convey through your creative response and how you believe your creative work delivers these messages.
Textual Influences
• Your explanation of textual influences should demonstrate your understanding of the text (the play) and explain how it has been represented through your own creative work. You should quote from the text to identify, analyse and discuss specific aspects of the play by which your work has been influenced.
Additional Influences
• Discuss any additional influences on the themes and ideas expressed within your creative work. For example, were they from reading or watching the text? Were they from class discussions about the text? Were they from relevant news items? Or, a combination of the above? Explain why and how these influences affected your creative work.
Significance of Medium and Materials
• Justify the choice of the particular medium and materials chosen by you. If the work is a narrative, point of view, setting, mood and choice of characters should be explained. If it is a poem, the style, imagery, language and other literary techniques used should be justified. In an artistic work, the language of music or design and visual expression should be used to analyse and justify your work.
You may also choose to offer additional information about your creative work. If you have any questions about this, be sure to discuss them with the teacher.
of between 800 and 1000 words.
4. What sort of creative work should I produce?
The scope for creative works is enormous. Suggestions include:
• a short story
• a diary entry
• a series of lyric poems (minimum of three), or a sustained narrative poem,
• a recreation of the style or thematic concerns of the author in a piece of your own, such as a short play, a story, or other creative writing piece,
• an artistic work such as a painting, photography, graphic design, sculpture, drawing, textile piece or floral/botanical sculpture,
• a performance piece of your own composition – performed either live or filmed. This might, for example, involve a dance piece or a performance with a musical instrument, or voice, or
• a short digital film or dynamic graphic montage.
Other ideas are also welcome, please see your teacher to discuss your proposal.
5. Suggested responses
These are some ideas that you might like to consider. You are not restricted to choosing one of these proposals:
• Select a theme that is presented in the novel and write a story or one act play that illustrates that theme.
• Continue the story of 1984 after the novel ends. What happens to the main character/characters next?
• Choose a key moment in the story. Create a visual representation of the scene created by the author.
• Choose a character from the play and write a poem(s) expressing their response to their situation.
• Write an excerpt from the diary of one of the novel’s main characters.

• Refer to the assessment rubric before commencing.
• Write your student ID number on all responses.
• Take time to plan, draft and edit your work.
• Answer all questions using well-structured paragraphs or essay format.
• Use formal language, complete sentences and correct punctuation.

• The ability to respond critically to text and to identify and analyse the use of literary devices and technique.
• The ability to evaluate and synthesise ideas.
• Imagination and originality.
• Proficiency in use of language.
• Control and mastery of the creative medium.
