THE GREAT GATSBY AQA

SECTION A: WRITING ABOUT SOCIETY 

INDICATIVE CONTENT

1. The question focus 

the focus is on rewriting the events that happen within the base text to place them in a new and creative perspective from someone different from the current point of view, therefore we are asked to re-cast the text into an account. we are asked to rewrite the base text/ the extract given from the point of view of either:

- an character within the base text that is explicitly mentioned within the book, someone that is included (jordan baker, myrtle, george etc.)

- an character that is not explicitly mentioned within the book, however someone that we know would be there (waiter, butler, news reporter etc.)

2. student choices

within our rewrites we are expected to make representational decisions around the use on different language levels like dialogue, speech, narrative modes and so on. whist producting the re-cast text that is witin the same broad genre as the base text ie prose fiction/nonfiction

for example ..

- the first person or one of the third person modes 

- to have
