    I wouldn't have said he doesn't belong anywhere because he essentially is the magnet and soul fragment who has a strong presence that gives hope to each and every ranch worker but also maintains a strong balance/control/order in the ranch and everyone seems to like him. And you could rephrase 'him leading to a successful path' to him rejuvenating, replenishing hope into the lives of those tame ranch workers and allowing them to see their goals as potential achievable goals. Additionally, how he is presented as a godly figure who is extremely versatile and fluctuative as he is adept to all situations...Steinbeck reveals no disability/negativity or weakness about Slim suggesting...
    Oh no... I don't even know what that rephrase sentence means oh god I'm so bad at English :/ I just thought that since his face was ageless and he stood in the doorway I could try to come up with an alternative interpretation so like he could befriend anyone so he not belong anywhere hahaha god what was I thinking in the exam :'(

    I wrote about the heirarchy on the ranch but only really mentioned Chapter 4, where all the "weak ones" are there, and explained why each one is seen as less important, and then mentioned how Curley's Wife is still more important than Crooks and quoted her saying she could get him hanged, and that Candy was more important than Curley's Wife because he said how he'd tell. Aasdfasdfg I don't know can we just skip to August 22nd please.
    Almost exactly what I wrote! I included how Slim has power because he is skilled and a likeable member of the bunkhouse, yet even though Candy describes Crooks as a 'hell of a nice guy,' and the 'broken harnesses in the process of being mended' indicate he is also skilled, don't lead to him having power, showing racial issues in American society 😁

    Does anyone know what last years grade boundary for English Lit was in terms of raw marks? I know it's out of 162 but I'm wondering what an A would be.

    yeah same for some of part (a) i put that the 'about' shows he knows what he's doing and takes control but for Bob is impatient and angry due to the 'red rooster'
    and yeah same for part (b) about the Maycomb is goverened by racism but i backed it up with the fact that AT the trial Mr Dolphus Raymond says to Scout 'you folks won't tell on will you' - then related it to when it says Jem has grown up by 'breaking the remaining code of childhood' but Maycomb hasn't - 'they will never, never understand' then I went into saying Miss Maudies view contrasts this of the 'baby step' do you think that's ok it happened at the trial so techincally she's using the trial to get him to explain, but it isn't specifically the trial?
    I think part (b) wasn't specifically asking you about the trial.... simply attitudes towards the court case throughout the whole novel so even if it isn't specifically the trial, Miss Maudie's "Baby-step" idea relates to the trial's aftermath

    Can I make a recommendation that we change the subject to poetry? We seem to work very well together, and today's exam is in the past; there's not much point in discussing it. It's likely that we all did a little bit better in the exam because of this thread, so let's use this again to our advantage for Thursday's exam.

    If you absolutely must talk about the Unit 1 exam then start a new thread, this one should now be dedicated to getting everyone prepared for poetry!

    was this the question that was like how do you respond to the end of the play?

    i wrote about techinqyes used at the end like the telephone ringing 'sharply' and the characters coming to realisation with the 'guilt' on their faces. I also mentioned the curtain falling down resembling a gulittin, which symoblises the end of their time etc...
    YES! I thought it was on about the language a Priestley used for the ending and throughout the play :'( Do you think it will still get marked?
