Your home learning is to find a written or pictorial text (or even a moving image such as a television advertisement) and identify the author’s perspective. Make reference to the language choices that have been made. It may be helpful to refer back to AA Gill’s panda article so you can see how his language choices help the reader to clearly identify his perspective.
Write your paragraph in the comments box below, clearly identifying the text you have chosen, and I shall give you written feedback and a mark out of 20 using the GCSE criteria.
Use the following to guide your analysis and evaluation:
I know I am working at…
– grade C if I perceptively and precisely analyse how language is used to convey the author’s perspective.
– grade B if I show imaginative insights into what the author implies.
– grade A if I analyse, with flair and sophistication, how the writer uses language to convey his point of view.
