2 pages is enough if you have normal handwriting, altho i'll be honest and say that i somehow managed to write 3 and a bit, probs cos I was writing huge, like 5-7 words a line maxa) stupid time management. Took section 1 too slow, and wrote too much for the 2 markers, picture, i just said sailence+position of the letter "place" indicates that a connection to place leads to belonging for an individual, image furthers' this idea by snipets of different landscape
e) what did people write for e? i did last two and only got 2 pages down on it :'( :'(
I like the Brooklyn one but , i said how the author uses lots of juxtaposition to show how belonging+identity go hand in hand, like she belongs to elisnnocrothe and so her identity is based around that, but in Brooklyn she is just a "ghost"
and for the Jack one, i just said how a deep connection to place is needed for a holistic sense of identity, but jack realises he is "lost" and hasn't peeled back the "exterior of society['s]" he's visited and so doesn't have an identity as the "huge hungry world" demands alot of understanding to develop a connection to place
how many marks you recon? say i included some more techniques, this was just the main point, can anyone suggest whats needed for 5 marks, thanks
b) what did you put for this......cause it was how are personal insights into belonging conved..... at personal insigts...i just said relaxed language and examples help convey it, and because each speaker draws a conclusion that helps convey...i was unsure
gl tmrw, hopefully jeane eather doesn't release anymore news statements.....
they usually expect 1.5-2, bare minimum of 1 page
Yeah um if you named and explained your techniques you might get 4-5, I only see 1 technique in there so hopefully you said stuff like metaphor/personification/symbolism or whatever with those examples. Personally I said in Jack's, anaphora + tricolon of "Again... again.. again" + accumulation of places "Australia, Asia" etc. + personification of huge hungry + alliteration/plosives of bb whatever the phrase was... etc. similar idea as you -> like overwhelmed/consumed by the wider world + lack of a significant/strong connection to a single place. Brooklyn, changing tenses etc., imagining the future/past + negative connotations/lack of emotions associated with the present, ellipses indicating thought/reflection or whatever, repetition of over and over, etc.
b) I said first person + connotations of family or familiarity/personal indications/observations or something e.g. neighbourhoods, Dad etc. = personal
