Due: Week B, after Mocks
Year 11, I’ve been impressed that you’re starting to experiment – for the most part – successfully, with more ambitious punctuation.
To get the ‘sizzle’, as Mr Bakewell calls it, you have to incorporate more than simply the ‘Review’.
1.Using memorable quotations, famous lines (or twisting them) – as practiced in class.
2.Extended metaphors – as practiced in class.
4.Amusing anecdotes (stories).
5.Starting with an imperative ‘Think about it…’
6. PERSUADE. ( P=Power of 3 E=Emotive writing R=Rhetorical Qu. S=Say Again (Repeat) U=Undermine the opposition A=Anecdote (tell a story) D=Direct Address E=Exaggerate)
For the assessment, you should be researching your attraction thoroughly; I was disappointed that there were still students unsure of where they would be reviewing!
You should be sequencing your review (structure) – look below at some areas that you could cover.
The journey to get there. Your first impressions. Whether you’d return.
Who the ideal audience(s) is/are. The cost. The staff. What the service was like.
The food (if applicable). The overall experience. The rides / attractions. The clientele.
Come to the lesson having considered (and drafted ideas) for numbers 1-6 above, as well as the research and sequence of your review.
