Transcript

  • 1. Objectives:
    • To understand the various linguistic and presentational devices used by writers in non-fiction and media texts
    • To understand the key aspects of this exam paper
  • 2. Weaknesses in Mocks:
    • Discussing language when you were asked to discuss presentation (and vice versa)
    • Not being focused and concise enough when addressing language and effect
    • Not exploring/ analysing THE EFFECT of a device (especially use of fact and opinion)
  • 3. Key questions:
    • Who produced text and what purpose?
    • Genre?
    • Who for (audience)?
    • How is meaning created?
    • How is it produced?
    • How is the ‘subject’ presented?
  • 4. Some themes from recent years:
    • Teaching as a vocation/ profession
    • Cooking
    • Migrant workers
    • Cars (adverts and reviews)
    • Reading habits
    • Mobile phones
  • 5. Task:
    • Think of a ‘theme’ and examiner might choose for this paper
    • Think of 2 or 3 texts that could be used to link to this theme
    • Be ready to feedback your ideas
  • 6. FEEDBACK!
  • 7. What do you know already?
  • 8. Presentational devices: Key word sheet…
  • 9. Presentational device pack:
    • A key revision document
    • You could create something similar yourself
    • Important to extend and develop your annotations so you focus on why the device has been used and to what effect
    • Let’s look at my example…
  • 10. A relaxed, smooth edged font style has been chosen. This effectively conveys the ease of preparation of the food dishes in the magazine; it suggests a friendly tone and indicates this magazine is for the general, everyday cook not a skilled chef… The light, bright colour scheme conveys the freshness and lightness of the dishes. This is particularly apt for the summer edition, and avoids dark, ‘heavy’ colours…
  • 11. Your turn… … try some annotations on the first text in your booklet.
  • 12. FEEDBACK!
  • 13. Now… … spend the next 15 minutes on the other texts in the booklet.
