    I am doing Sheenagh Pugh and Carol Ann Duffy for Poetry, and Dancing at Lughnasa for the play.

    I am so freaking scared!
    Dancing at Lughnasa is giving me the heebie jeebies because I don't know how to approach the essay questions on it!
    and also the assessment objectives?
    how can I ensure that I am hitting all of them accurately
    I need an essay structure for how to answer Dancing at Lughnasa questions
    SOMEONE HELP ME!

    The questions for Dancing at Lughnasa are always going to focus on a particular extract and USUALLY ask you to draw on something elsewhere in the play.

    It's difficult to say a definite way of structuring your answer but I would say focus heavily on the extract in relation to the question remembering to include
    -Context e.g the prominence of Catholicism
    -The fact it is a play e.g stage directions


    And then move from the extract to a connection to the rest of the play.

    Hope this helps a little!
