    Thank you! Don't worry I won't I've just noticed your question about evaluating- I think this is when you make a 'theory' on what the reader might usually think about something, and then in your analysis you say whether the language/point made agrees or contradicts with what the reader might usually think. Hope it helps, I'm not sure if it's the real definition
    Thank you

    hopefully it is the Putnams :crossedf:

    and i dont think it will be Danforth, he was done a couple of years ago i think, unless they decide to do it again

    i think it may be a question on a theme, maybe justice?
    I havent seen any danforth questions on any pastpapers?

    Some people have said OMAM will be the Natural World, but to be honest, I'd have no idea what to write.

    Can you make a question for them?
    I did earlier:

    a) Read pages 55 to 56 from "A tall man stood in the doorway." on page 55 to "You the new guys?" on page 56. How does Steinbeck present Slim as someone of importance in the passage?

    b) In the rest of the novel, what is the importance of Slim to the story?


    30 marks.

    "Slim is the least loneliest character on the ranch. How far do you agree with this statement?"
    Not sure about Erix

    same! or the class system and the economic depression, I suppose the question would have to relate to growing up by all children and then that could be linked to the aftermath of the wall street crash and maybe even racial intolerences towards atticus forcing jem and scout to grow up more quickly

    I'd be very grateful if someone answered this!
    I guess you could, as long as your point links the actual question with the novella. Try not to go off topic though! Good Luck for tomorrow- scared :/

    Ironically I did a small paragraph on Slim yesterday, can I get some feedback on it please

    When we are first introduced to slim there are a number of words which infer Slims supremacy, nobility and power. Words like "majesty - royalty - master - prince" are used in conjunction with his introduction, this infers to the reader already that Slim is a character that is greatly looked up to and respected. The author uses Slim to create a father figure on the ranch, this is because ranch hands sprang from ranch to ranch as a result leading lonely lives, therefore Slim almost creates comfort for the ranch hands as they feel like they can talk to him. The author does this to emphasise the effects of the Great Depression as men attempted to work towards the American Dream they were forced to lead lonely lives with no family and no friends, only the men they met on ranches, furthermore Slim is used to fill the void in the lives of the ranch hands as he is a strong figure who is highly valued, just like a father. Moreover from the use of those four words in the description of Slim the reader can infer that Slim is not like other ranch hands as we the reader later find out in the play. Additionally, at the time of the Great Depression size and strength were very important. "A tall man stood in the doorway" .........

    - btw I added the ellipses at the end because I did not know how to explain the quote, any ideas?
