Welcome to Ace-Resources

Ace-Resources provides potential teaching resources for senior secondary English ATAR and General courses in Western Australia. The site (including My ClassNotes) is currently under development. Much below yet to be organised.

Focus initially will be on reading material for comprehension and analysis activities, expanding later to right hand side margin content. I don't intend to differentiate between ATAR and General content. Most resources will be accessible to both courses with pitch and course relevance determined by the questions and activities.
