Having marked a few Question 4s, (this week’s homework) some of you have nailed it but some of you are getting a bit confused. Main issues:
- No quotes
- Vague comments – not specific enough to key quotes and the effects
- Talking in length about the headline and picture. You can mention the headline but don’t spend a full page on it.
- Not enough focus on language
Use the structure on the blog/green sheet to help, if not come up with your own structure.
Take a look at the following page provided to help you with key language/linguistic techniques. We will look at this in the revision sessions next week too.
Also those of you who didn’t hand in your books or homework – how are you supposed to improve if you don’t give me the chance to mark your work?
