Worksheet Overview

To achieve the highest marks in the exam, you need to analyse quotations closely.


Try to zoom in on different parts of a quotation to explore the connotations of words. 


For example, in the quotation:


"Gloomy tunnels lead out of the dugout to left and right"


magnifying glass ...you might zoom in on the word  "Gloomy"  - the connotations might be dark/depressing/miserable


magnifying glass....and zoom in on the word  "Tunnels" - the connotations might be small/cramped/claustrophobic


You should also ensure that you choose quotations carefully - which quotation illustrates your point the best?


Now have a go at the following questions, which will help you to analyse quotations more closely and choose the best quotations to support a point.
