    My first year doing higher english and so desperate to pass with a decent mark. Just wondering if you have any tips for the close reading and critical essay ( doing The Cone Gatherers). Also wondering if I should do reflective or creative essay as part of folio.
    Thanks

    I did The Cone Gatherers! :] But it was like 8 years ago, so I can't remember very much... except for all the biblical allusions. I might be able to help you though if you come across passages and feel like there's something important being said but you can't quite articulate it.. It's a really good text for close reading if I remember correctly.

    Are you a creative writer? Have you ever written stories before? You should give it a try and you'll soon find out if you've got the patience for it.

    In the cone gatherers I have alot of quotes highlighted, but there's a few I'm not sure if there's any need to remember.
    last year I done for Nat 5 a reflective essay and this year I have a couple of ideas for it. But, I feel if I can get an outline for a story I could do okay...for me its just thinking up an idea!
