Which questions in the Merchant of Venice paper do you feel most confident in approaching? What about the one(s) that you’re least confident with?
Choose a question (or questions) that you’re still not sure about and do further research in how to answer it. I would like to see evidence of your research tomorrow, either on the blog (below) or in your exercise book.
Remember, the questions will have the following focus:
a) Focus on a character from the given extract
b) The play-in-performance question – how should the extract given be performed?
c) A theme or repeated idea (e.g. love, prejudice) elsewhere in the play. Use CRISP to structure your answer.
To help you with your research, I shall send you a copy of the examiner’s report from November 2013, as well as exemplar responses, to your academy emails. BBC Bitesize, for all its benefits, is still based on the AQA exam (I think) so do be careful with what you take from it. You can, of course, type what you want into Google (the following tabs may help: Edexcel, GCSE English, Unit 2, Shakespeare, Merchant of Venice).
