    does anyone have any ideas on what extract might come up for OMAM?
    I reckon:
    -the ending scene
    - Candy's dog's death
    - Curley's hand crushed

    I can't think of anything else it would be

    No clue, but the extract part usually has some obvious things to analyse, so I wouldn't worry about it!

    My friend's convinced that it's going to be that passage with Aunt Clara and the giant rabbit, and then the part B question will be Lennie and the American Dream. I really hope it isn't that.

    If the question's on masculinity as the original post suggests, then I'd guess it would be the first meeting with Curley or when his hand is crushed?

    Perhaps the shooting of Candy's dog could be the extract, with themes of loneliness or relationships as part B?

    But of course, it could be anything!

    Has anyone good any advice on how to set out your answer to extract question in OMAN? As in is there a certain layout you can follow (eg PEE) because my teacher hasn't really helped us in that sense.

    oh dear, if your friend's predictions were true I'd literally give up right there and focus all my time on AIC
    I'm hoping for the scene where his hand is crushed tbh but not masculinity for the main theme Brutality on the ranch was SO GOOD for last year's y11 :cry:

    Yeah it's PEE. Only talk about language in extract, not context

    If Masculinity came up for OMAM what points would you make??
    I honestly hope it doesn't, because there are questions where there's so much more to say.
    Probably:
    - High heeled boots - how Curley wears them and Slim doesn't need to.
    - How Slim is presented as the ultimate figure in masculinity and respected so much as a result - every major decision made in the book has Slim's advice, his hands are described as 'Godlike', etc.
    - Curley's insecurities about being small and as a result picking fights with bigger men. As being tall is generally perceived as more masculine, it could show how much masculinity matters to him as he gets into fights just to prove he's better than them.
    - Not sure, but possibly their obsession with the brothel?

    Saw someone post something really great in another board, but can no longer find the thread. The gist was:
    Point
    Evidence
    Explain
    Effect on the reader
    Alternate interpretation
    Link to context
    Link to original question
