The Great Gatsby Quotations Table
While you lot have been busy writing essays, I’ve been using the quotations that you’ve gathered to make a quotations table for ‘The Great Gatsby’ – something that will help with future essays and revision.
Remember, though, that you need to be able to INTRODUCE these quotes, so don’t think you can just rely on this – it will, however, make looking for quotations much easier.
Below are links to exemplar essays on ‘The Great Gatsby’. Now, these essays are for A-Level, so are of a very high standard – however, do look at them carefully, as this will give you an idea of what high quality critical responses should look like.
The third link is particularly interesting, as it shows an A grade and a C grade essay – think about the use of vocabulary, the references to other texts and the use of critical terminology in the essays, as well as how you can use these to improve your own work.
For those of you having to complete the NAB resit, remember it is taking place on the 13th of this month, i.e. next Wednesday.
I’ve attached a booklet full of tips and exercises for revision – this is for EVERYONE. You might have passed the NAB, but there’s still a close reading paper for the exam, too.
