introduction should be simple and succinctly the examiner thought you’re doing and how you intend to do it plan to use just five senses to do so as follows sentence one details for the text sentences two and three a summary of the text sentences four and five a restatement of the task sentence one is best remembered through the action and tag title author genre a genre refers to the type of text as a play a poem an autobiography a novel and so forth here then as a four sentence a fellow as a play written by William Shakespeare the name of the text appears in inverted commas and the author’s name is spelled correctly it will be ashamed to make an error and a very fast lane so remember appropriate punctuation and be sure you know how to spell the author’s name an opening which describes our phthalo by sharks bar would not encourage the examiner the Udacity is going to be one of the high standard the next two sentences should provide a summary of the text keep it tight all you need to do here is state the main events characters and themes here’s an example the text charts the growing jealousy of a general a sailor who becomes increasingly suspicious of and eventually kills his wife Desdemona the jealousy is engineered by the journals trusted aide a a girl who convinces his master of his wife’s deceit that’s it remember keep it tight don’t try to retail all the events of the

expand it to generate more complex paragraphs with sustained arguments but this Amin the foils t of one main point for the paragraph you might repeat the evidence and analysis steps so the paragraph becomes point evidence analysis some more evidence further analysis relate to task as you become more confident with the basic structure you would know don’t want to alter it to suit your own writing style let’s break at the pier structure down if you want a more detailed walkthrough of the pier process listen to the appendix podcast which contains this information alongside an example paragraph P or point is the first sentence or couple of sentences this will normally nor to the question mention the author mentioned one or two luxury techniques and highlight the section of the text you’re focusing upon the section you focus upon is the appropriate key event you have jotted down in the plan E or evidence as the next part of the paragraph the best kind of evidence is an appropriate quotation from the text if you’ve been revising using a sequencing sheet you would probably have a handful of quotes to sum up each of the key events if you don’t have a quote Bank this is something you could work on before the exam you should try to lead them to the courtyard using don’t simply plunk it down onto the page a leaden freeze might mention the author or the character for example Shakespeare tells us how good of use that Desdemona can finding an amelia declares if you can’t remember course and then the stress of Examiners possible you should try an accurately gloss which means

where you’re answering the question the purpose here is not to be what the key event you’ve chosen but to show its relevance in answering the question many promising higher critical aces make the mistake of merely showing hokey events are important to themes of the text rather than how they’re important to the question itself for example in the first paragraph of the plan examining the opening scene of a fellow Shakespeare creates the conflict through characterization showing us a gross personality and motivation as well as plot foreshadowing tragic events to come try not to rely on one simple point instead you should make a number of length points which expand upon an initial idea the rational point which opened your paragraph remember also to use critical terminology the terms which are outlined in the box and the questions people and the author’s name like seasoning through your analysis this prevents your lapsing into storytelling our order late as a quick sentence to close your paragraph this would just be a restatement of what the author’s achieved in relation to the particular point you made in the opening of the paragraph a better relate sentence would link in some manner to the next point you’re making a good plan allows you to do this it is easier to like one paragraph to the next if you have a good idea where your race is going Zach should forward activity 3 in all you have 8 minutes for each of your paragraphs this gives you a perfect activity for your vision which takes your knowledge of your text rather than rating entire basis you should try rating time paragraphs in response to AC questions from past papers pick a question from the extract of the question paper or a past paper quickly to say Dan one key event you would rate about kept yourself just eight minutes to rate a paragraph and be sure that responds to the task and the expiry lovin points about the texture picked at the end of the time you should review the paragraph and look for a point that contains the author’s name some critical terminology and the reference to the section the texture focusing upon an accurate quote in inverted commas which is led into an analytical of we a number of develop points in relation to the task and as succinct concluding sentence if you completed these peer paragraphs and small sheets of paper or even post cards you can soon build up a useful store of revision cards paired paragraphs that not only describe what happens in a text but fatally how the author has achieved a particular effect the third and final element of your critical AC is a conclusion you plan allows for three minutes for this the purpose of the conclusion is to summarize all your main points and to succinctly as possible provide your response to the question this should actually be rather straightforward merely harvest the ideas from your point and relate sentences and rewarding them if necessary length them together into a coherent argument the only other thing to remember to do is to mention the author’s name in your summation after all without the author they’ll be no texture study and no critical a sitter eight you mate at this stage be dreaming of such a situation hopefully however this podcast has helped you with your critical AC skills and at the very least stopped you worrying quite so much about how to tackle this part of the
