Watch Mr Bruff’s videos on BB.
As well as revising A Christmas Carol, please make sure you have learned the structure of Joe le Taxi. This includes pathetic fallacy, introduction of characters, shift in perspective, dialogue and mirroring.
For the Havana travel writing, decide:
What is the writer wanting to tell us?
Why does the writer want us to know?
What does the writer want us to feel about this?
These ideas will help you come up with three or so abstract nouns or adjectives that best sum up the writer’s viewpoints and perspectives on the subject.
Check back though your Joe Le Taxi and edit is specifically focusing on accurate punctuation.
Are your apostrophes used correctly for both belonging and elision (like doesn’t = does not)?
If you’ve used exclamation marks, replace them with powerful vocabulary.
A semi-colon links two closely related sentences. Could you use one?
Rhetorical questions can be used, but limit them.
Use the final section (18) to answer fill in the grid about Scrooge as a changed character. You have a basic, entry-level example of analysis here. I expect you ALL to be working far above this level. Use the analysis mats attached and all key words to really extend your ideas when writing about all 5 quotations and what they show.
You have your books and revision in the plastic wallet. Make sure you think carefully about the characters and themes. Keep referring back to context (when and why Dickens was writing).
Use Mr Bruff and GCSE Bitesize 🙂
Complete all bits of analysis on each sheet up to the end of sheet 8.
Learn the ideas in the revision booklet and fill in the information needed on BOTH sides of the quotation sheet.
