    Paper 6 Essay: Never Let Me Go: Due Monday, May 4 (you may submit earlier

    This week, you will take a break from reading to write.  You will be writing an AICE essay based on parts 1 and 2 of Never Let Me Go.  This essay will be used as evidence for determining your grade for Cambridge; therefore, it is imperative that you do your best and that you do not plagerize your work.  All assignments submitted to me are saved on my computer, so I can easily compare one essay to another.  Simply write based on your reaction to the prompt and your understanding of the novel.  If work is copied, it will receive a zero with no chance to resubmit another essay.

    The essay will be double-weighted in the gradebook.

    The essay attached is a close read.  Before you write, I would advise you to reveiw a close read sample essay for A Level that was given to you in class, or go online to the Cambridge website and find a sample paper for a close read (question b) for A Level Literature 9695, Paper 6.

    Also, you can rewatch the attached Youtube video.  The link will also be place on Google Classroom.

    Remember at A Level, you are exspected to have more in depth discussion of  selected quotes from the extract.  Analyze the quote on as many levels as possible, such as characterization, tone/mood, linking the passage to the novel as a whole, connecting to other interrpretations, to major concerns, etc.

    Next week, we will resume reading the novel.  If you are behind on your reading, this is the perfect time to catch up!

    Assignment for Week of Monday, April 13- May 17

    I hope you are enjoying this novel!  If you have trouble understand the text, I encourage you to reach out to online sources, like chapter summaries, etc.  However, do not use the summaries to complete the study guides.  You will be writing two essays on this novel: one at the end of Part 2, and another when you finish the novel.  It is essential that you have thoroughly read the assigned chapters before you write your essays.
