Of mice and men pee

  1. 1. Of Mice and Men Answering the Literature question.
  2. 2. Types of Questions <ul><li>You will always get the certain types of questions in the exam. They focus on: </li></ul><ul><li>How the author crafts a character. </li></ul><ul><li>How the author develops his plot. </li></ul><ul><li>How the author highlights a theme. </li></ul><ul><li>How the author creates a setting </li></ul><ul><li>Occasionally you may get a writing in role question. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Common Mistakes How is Lennie portrayed in the opening chapter? Lennie is described as an animal in the opening chapter. This is an example of an G or F Level answer Here the person is able to come up with an answer to the question that is basic with no quotations to back up their points. An examiner might comment that the candidate shows a simple knowledge of the text
  4. 4. Common Mistakes How is Lennie portrayed in the opening chapter? Lennie is described as an animal in the opening chapter, ‘snorting water like a horse’. This is an example of an E or D Level answer Here the person is able to come up with an answer to the question with a quotation to show where they got their idea from. An examiner might comment that the candidate shows an understanding of the question with close reference to the text.
  5. 5. C Grade and above answers How is Lennie portrayed in the opening chapter? Lennie is described as an animal in the opening chapter, ‘snorting water like a horse’. This portrays Lennie as a horse which makes the audience realise he is strong like a horse but also lacking the mental capacity of a human. This is an example of an C or B Level answer Here the person is able to come up with an answer to the question with a quotation to show where they got their idea from. They are then able to tell the reader what effect that quotation has. An examiner might comment that the candidate shows an understanding of the question with close reference to the text, making judgements on the writer’s intentions.
  6. 6. Bonus Points These tricks get you higher marks ‘ snorting like a horse’ ‘ carrying in their lower leaf…’ ‘ large, pale eyes, with wide, sloping shoulders’ ‘ dabbled his big paw’ Simile Personification Descriptive adjectives Metaphor Commenting on the techniques used by the writer get you higher marks still.
  7. 7. Tricks of the trade <ul><li>Use part of the question when you explain your point. </li></ul><ul><li>Only take the part of the quote you need. </li></ul><ul><li>Your point should be no more than two lines. </li></ul><ul><li>Your explanation should be at least double this. </li></ul>An examiner will give you more marks for your explanation rather than your point.
  8. 8. Points you could have had… <ul><li>Lennie is described as an animal. </li></ul><ul><li>Lennie is shown to be childlike. </li></ul><ul><li>Lennie copies George. </li></ul><ul><li>Lennie depends on George. </li></ul><ul><li>Lennie takes orders from George. </li></ul><ul><li>Lennie looks up to George. </li></ul><ul><li>Lennie is shown to be huge in stature. </li></ul><ul><li>Lennie tries to please George. </li></ul>Take one of these points and add evidence to take it from an F to an E or D.
  9. 9. Explanations English is just like Maths in that the examiner wants to see your working. Your explanation is your working; it basically says ‘I came up with my answer because of this piece of evidence that made me think the author meant…’. Take the point and evidence you used in the previous section and add an explanation to take the grade from an E to a C or above.
  10. 10. Show me you’ve listened. How does pages 89-93 show that Slim is respected character? (10 Marks) 15 minutes. Hint: Remember to show your working and use part of the question in your explanations. Aim for between 3 and 5 quotes.
  11. 11. Mark each others’ work <ul><li>Give one mark each for the following points with a maximum of 3 marks.: </li></ul><ul><li>Slim stand up to Curley. </li></ul><ul><li>Curley backs down. </li></ul><ul><li>The men back up Slim over Curley. </li></ul><ul><li>Slim tells Curley what to say after the fight. </li></ul>Give one mark for a relevant quotation to support one of the above points.
  12. 12. Mark each others’ work <ul><li>Give up to four marks for explanations that contain the ideas that: </li></ul><ul><li>Slim standing up to the boss’ son shows Slim has the respect of the boss. </li></ul><ul><li>Curley backing down shows Slim is not to be messed with. </li></ul><ul><li>The men backing up Slim shows they will take on the boss’ son when Slim is around. </li></ul><ul><li>Slim takes control of the situation in the end, getting one over Curley. </li></ul>You may award 2 Bonus marks if the answer mentions any Language Techniques the author uses.
