Textual integrity is probably the most IMPORTANT requirement in Module B. And you should not even be using the term 'readings', rather personal insights.kooltrainer said:so i dun get it... why do people talk about textual integrity in their essays? are they essential?? is it one of the requirements for module B??
i thought u just need ur own reading and someone elses then finish ...... . . .. . how does textual integrity relate to module B?
You are about right. "Textual integrity" is that cohesion of both thematic elements and techniques (characterisation, allusion, language ect.) that grants the text significant/resonant qualities.i posted this in another thread about textual integrity but here it is anyway...
we had a huge confusion thing at school about textual integrity and after a lot of discussion by the teachers, they explained it to the whole grade
textual integrity is a word coined by the board of studies. it is used in a way that describes the text as a whole, the entirety of it, how all the elements add up to make a text good.
A composer cannot "use textual integrity", or "establish textual integrity". Rather it is what the responder draws from a text after critically examining it.
So a speech, like any text, will have textual integrity, if all the elements add up to an integrated, substantial whole... look at the words - textual integrity - how well the elements of the text (techniques, ideas etc.) are integrated and the quality of those elements and the integration
i hope that made sense...
also, we were told to avoid using the term unless it was specifically asked for in the question
