grouping texts

  • 0 votes

I know all the material for groping texts in AS but I'm not sure how to structure my answer. Do I analyse each text seperatly and then group them at the end or do i group them in a comparative way? And if so, how can I do that without sounding repetitive? Thankyou!

Group in a comparative way if you can! For example I have grouped texts A, B and E due to their use of imperatives etc

Thank you for your help. Should I show the differences too, do u think?

I think you should include some differences but maybe not for every text/group

Rach, it's really important that you discuss each grouping - say the differences for every grouping and how some texts fit better into a certain grouping than others. If you don't do this you won't be able to get full marks in assessment objective 2.

Make sure you also use linguistic terminology correctly and are aware of the context of production and reception.

Hope this helps :)

 My teacher said that you need to be systematic. In other words have a clear strucuture and analysis even though in the exam you are terrified.

For both questions, use frameworks as paragraph separators or different groupings. Mention if there are any problems, problematic grouping. It is okay to evaluate.
