    2. It has helped me to understand what the examiners are looking for in the answer to partc). Understanding this will hopefully help to answer the mice and men side of the paper. This can be a chance to boost my grade up by just a couple of marks with to days help. To help myself I will read ove the book and the play once more to get it refreshed in my mind.

    Today’s lesson will help to prepare us for question c because we practised on spotting lines and comments that represent characters in certain ways for example in the extract we looked at i found lines that represented George as a angry stubborn man but also caring. from looking at themes might help to because were using crisp to find more details in the extract

      Thanks Joe, though you seem to have mixed up the different parts of the lesson: George (Milton) was in the OMaM starter you answered, while the main part of the lesson was finding key scenes for themes in Macbeth and then using CRISP to structure an answer to q.c). Mr Legowski

    Today’s lesson has helped us prepare for answering question C. By doing this we were able to go through main points to talk about ‘CRISP’. This will help us to develop a well structured answer in our exam. The lesson also helped by familiarising ourselves with the scenes of Macbeth and what their significance is within the play. It’s a good way to remember to make sure that our answers have as much detail in as possible.

    Today’s lesson helped us prepare for answering question c. We did this by using the writing technique of ‘CRISP’ which allows us to give a more developed answers. By going over both mice and men and Macbeth it helps us to remember information which which will help when completing the exam. For example we can remind ourselves of the relationship between George and Lennie.

    Today’s lesson can not only help us with Macbeth and his story but we can also use the CRISP structure in other types of writing for different subjects for example, Of mice and men. We should be able to make links to the text easier and understand characters and their relationships more, as well as making many links to the text and quotes from characters.

    1) I couldn’t find the plans to mark.
    2) Today’s lesson will help me to answer questions about Of mice and men,as we used the CRISP technique which stands for characters, relationships, ideas, significance and plot. This will help us to structure our answers. I also think it will help us to decide whether or not the extract we choose to write about is the best one possible in the context of which we are writing in, (based on the question we are given).

    1) The plans appear to be missing…
    2) In our lesson yesterday we focused on the CRISP technique, specifically in the play Macbeth. This allowed us to be more thorough in discussing the relevance of each character within a certain scene. The ways in which it will/should benefit us when answering Of mice and Men related questions, is that there are multiple questions revolving about characters and their relationships, such as the friendship between George and Lennie.

    In yesterdays lesson, we learnt how to apply the CRISP technique to Macbeth. This opened further discussion and understanding of how to relate the theme with the characters and relationships. This helps with recognising how to examine a text and understand the themes. However, the lesson was based on Macbeth, not Of Mice and Men, so that could be draw back.

    Yesterdays lesson will help us to answer exam questions in a structured way to make sure we get all of our points down with explanation. The ‘CRISP’ method of writing helps us link themes together and make further developed points. It will help us refer back to the extract for accurate quotes to link in with our writing to get higher marks on our answers.
