At what point in the whole story your evidence originates from (bonus points for act and scene numbers). Much simpler than it sounds. Basically, you’re setting the scene for the quote, or painting an image within which your quote is said. You will need to include who it absolutely was said by, who it was said to, and where it was said (less important if said during a significant event in the text, that you simply should mention instead). The cause of contextualisation may be the tendency that is unfortunate people to make up quotes on the spot. Including the scene in which you found your evidence invites the marker to check you on the honesty. It also helps enormously in ‘giving a feel’ to the vibe that is general of quote, so the marker can easily see you’re deploying it appropriately rather than twisting it to mean the exact opposite of what the writer intended it to be (or at the least, didn’t intend it to not be).
Quote: Your hard evidence.
Taken straight through the text. Needs to be word-for-word, given the marker can check the quote in the event that you contextualise properly, and excluding or changing one word can give a sentence opposite meaning (like ‘not’, ‘no’, or swapping ‘if’ and ‘unless’). The length can range anywhere from 1 word to two paragraphs. The part that is only of essay (apart from techniques) that absolutely needs to be memorized.
What gives quotes significance and meaning aided by the potential audience. Similes, metaphors, imagery, personification etc. Absolutely vital. Having it is meant by no technique’s impractical to justify whatever significance you receive from the quote, which kills your linkage. Which, as you’ll come to get, kills your essay.
What the importance of the quote is, and just how the question is answered by it. I have started to believe, after much learning, tears, practice, failure, arguments, trial, error, and tutoring that a great 70-80% of marks are allocated regarding the quality of linkage. It will be the step that is final your way from words to meaning. This is basically the part that takes the practice that is most, and can rarely be memorised word-for-word to use on exam day.
Linkage often takes the type of: the utilization of (technique) helps make the audience feel (significance), and also this means they can identify with (your thesis). Because of this, (your thesis) is an especially relevant take on (the question).
Normally it takes several sentences to get this across if the technique is complicated, the significance is difficult to explain, or your thesis together with question are awkward to slot into a single sentence. Use as many sentences since you need, as this is where your marks are coming from.
It's obvious that the significance and your thesis closely have to be related. It goes without saying that your technique has got to be justified in giving the value it does. The usage repetition, for example, does not mean Hamlet is a post-colonial play. Make it logical.
Do. Not. Neglect. This. Ever! It is the difference between a 60 and an 85, or a 90 and a 98. Too much rides on your linkage for you yourself to ignore it. Practice it. Many, often times. Then practice it a few more. It’s an art and craft to understand, not a fact to once memorise you can get it right, it does not ever go away.
Needless to say, there are lots of variations in the bolded sentence. That is just something to rehearse with, and maybe fall back on when you get stuck.
6. Reference to question: Statement that your particular thesis answers the question. It had been mentioned in the linkage section. I’ll show it again: because of this, (your thesis) is a particularly relevant take on (the question). This really is what most people mistake for linkage, and then don’t actually link. In reality, this will be simply the icing in the cake. Don’t ignore it, though. You don’t need to justify the web link amongst the thesis while the question here in very first sentence.</p– you did it
This paragraph structure should always be fail-safe. It’s exactly the one I useful for every paragraph I wrote in the Advanced English HSC exam.
Practice Body Paragraph (easy)
The numbers are there any to exhibit what stage of this paragraph it’s up to
(1 for Thesis, 2 for Context, etc. – refer to the original list)
Practice question: How does your selected text communicate the concept of belonging?
Sample text: Call Of the Horizon (Jaksic, Sydney Herald, 2/08/09)
Brief synopsis: Interview of Ernie Dingo on where he wants to travel morning
(1) Call Of The Horizon communicates the concept of belonging as a kind of attraction towards a destination that is particular. (2) this might be evident within the subject’s dialogue with the writer, as he says (3) ‘Don’t tell the Kiwis, (but) I would personally get back to New Zealand tomorrow.’ (4) The usage of a hypothetical in ‘go back again to New Zealand tomorrow.’ (5) implies his readiness to go there despite the accompanying difficulties of embarking with a day’s notice, while the aside of ‘don’t tell the Kiwis’ recognises that such a feeling of a belonging to a foreign country, for an Australian, is unusual. (6) Therefore, the article manages to use the unit so that you can depict belonging as a readiness to be in close proximity to or perhaps in a location.
Practice Body Paragraph 2 (harder)
Practice question: how can your selected text communicate the basic concept of belonging?
Sample text: Harry Potter and also the Deathly Hallows (Rowling, 2007)
(1) Rowling depicts the most sense that is obvious of as belonging in the community; quite simply, the city recognising and accepting the protagonist. However, she also shows the thought of belonging as being a necessary part of a storyline’s resolution. (2) it is shown in the immediate reaction from others following the resolution of Harry and Voldemort’s climactic duel. (3) The narration of ‘Harry was an part that is indispensable of mingled outpouring of jubilation and mourning, of grief and celebration’ is depicted entirely through (4) sustained focus on Harry, through the adjective of indispensable, between two wildly juxtaposed states of emotion. (5) The sentence, although dominated by evocative imagery, keeps Harry’s ‘belonging’ as its focus; this is certainly, belonging within the emotion displayed by the characters that are secondary therefore ‘belonging’ as a part of the climax associated with story. Rowling consequently integrates Harry into two different states of ‘belonging’: the esteem given to him because of the story’s other characters despite their emotional state, and his integrated belonging in to the story through the emphasis positioned on him in its climax. (6) this provides a multi-layered notion of belonging in the narrative as shown by Rowling.
in this instance, the importance associated with quote is taken from its point in the story, which happened to end up being the climax. You are able to use the significance regarding the quote from anywhere, as long as you fix your linkage to attain that significance.
If you took the linkage out, this paragraph would still appear normal enough in an English essay:
(1) Rowling depicts probably the most obvious sense of belonging as belonging in the community; easily put, the city recognising and accepting the protagonist. (2) this can be shown in the reaction that is immediate others following the resolution of Harry and Voldemort’s climactic duel. (3) The narration of ‘Harry was an indispensable area of the mingled outpouring of jubilation and mourning, of grief and celebration’ is depicted entirely through (4) sustained focus on Harry, through the adjective of indispensable, between two wildly juxtaposed states of emotion. (6) this provides an idea of belonging inside the narrative as shown by Rowling.
….which is fair enough, however the paragraph would have more of a 15/20 in place of 18 or 19, that you simply must certanly be shooting for.
Why wouldn't it get a lesser mark? It leaves questions unanswered.
1. How does the technique help the reader comprehend the idea of belonging?
2. Just how would be the states of emotion juxtaposed? Could it be done through Harry's perspective? Is the description of every state of emotion different? Etc. This really is a technique/link that is free begging.
3. What specific feeling of belonging are we shooting for? Harry belonging among other characters, or Harry belonging inside the text? Sure, we place it in the thesis statement but that does not mean we proved it.
