1.How might you use the PEA structure more effectively to avoid describing/narrating ?
- understand the text clearly before starting to analyse.
- be concise on stating “Point” – “Evidence” and then “Analyse”.
- When analysing, remember to answer “to what effect?” – meaning how can you show analysis more and further in depth? to what you have already analysed a bit. What is the effect of having eg: high angle? why does it make them look powerful?
- Answer “so what?”
- Do not state or use points and evidence that does not provide more analysis – that will eventually go into description.
2. How might you use your thesis to organise your ideas to BUILD arguments?
- unpack and analyse in the form of:
- Make sure to be able to identity 1 or 2 themes when reading and understanding the text.
- Identify 2 or 3 thesis strands that supports the main themes and then use PEA.
- Build your analysis by developing your points and ideas.
3. How might you read more carefully for implied meaning by using visual or verbal word choices?
- read the text 2 to 3 times to understand the text while also unpacking the visual and lexical elements.
- for comic strips – read texts beyond class
- focus on the choices of word used in the text – analyse “why did they use that?” “how does that impact the understanding of the text?”
- looking into character vs characterisation
- if there is a character shown in the text, then there should be something that the characters represent or symbolise.
- find out what do the characters represent or symbolise? –> what is contrasting, ironic, humorous, exaggerating? within the characters and their actions or thoughts?
- Do the representation of characters have any impact on society? on the readers?
- Read essays written by others – to see what necessary changes i might need to make
- practise more comic strip and political text type paper 1 – with the feedbacks implied
- study the different text types, possible features and vocabularies of those text types that I can use in my essay.
- learn how to unpack visual and lexical elements more.
- Look into the work choice used by the author and its impact on the readers?
- improving PEA structure. –> To avoid narrating.
