Hi all!

Kinda new to this, so if I have done something wrong, please do correct it. Anyways, I have written 1 point for a categorizing texts essay. Could one of you lovely people give me some feedback, and if I finished it off like this, what grade would I get?

Thanks!!!!!!

Hi,

I'm doing AS English too. Just wanted to know what exam board you follow before I feedback? Just in case any content differs from one specification to another. I don't want to give you wrong info that's all. But in general I would say that you seem to be going in the right direction but your intro was too vague in my opinion. Try to elaborate on what the individual specific purposes are before expanding on them on the main body of your essay. Don't just say it is to persuade them to "do something"...what is it trying to persuade the audience to do?

Hope that helps

The coursework is really enjoyable, we had to write satirical newpspaer article in the style of some guy, and now we're writing our own piece. I got a B in the first one, it really isn't like work at all, its more fun than anything!

For your groupings essay, we tend to do our groupings in terms of 'frameworks'. The different frameworks are:
- Grammar
- Pragmatics
- Discourse structure
- Graphology
- Phonology
- Semantics
- Lexis
- Register

So for example, if 3 texts have an interesting discourse structure you could say they're linked by their use of discourse structure. If they have different discourse structures you would say why (using Genre, Audience, Purpose), and compare and contrast them throughout
