Look back at the notes from yesterday’s revision day – there are some rough plans for past essay questions. You can find the post here.
- Choose one plan and read it
- Develop the plan and add quotations – between 5 and 7 is a good number (spend 5 minutes doing this)
- Write the essay (Spend 35-40 minutes). Remember: You do not need to write an introduction – dive in, answer the question and begin to analyse in your very first paragraph
- Check you essay – two minutes
Scan it in and email it to me at [email protected]
Tip: If you choose to answer a question that tracks the development or growth of a character. you should look at five stages of this character in the play
- When the character is first described by stage directions
- How does their first line of dialogue reflect them. Just as important – how do other characters react to the first line of dialogue from your chosen character?
- How does the character react to the inspector and when they are told of Eva’s death?
- How does the character act when interrogated?
- How has the character changed (or not) by the end of the play – focus on Gerald’s entrance and when the phone rings
