    6 should be alright (including an intro and conclusion)

    4 detailed ones. The intro and conclusion don't have to be that long

    With the OMAM, my teacher says not to do an introduction or conclusion! It only wastes time! He says to do 6 detailed paragraphs with 6 separate points!

    I'm doing AQA English Literature on Monday, and I'm going to do about 6 paragraphs,
    Some advice:
    - When you write about the poem, do P.E.E.Z. paragraphs:
    - Point - What are you going to talk about?
    - Evidence - Quotation (Related to your point).
    - Explanation - Explain in detail about the evidence, what it implies, and what it means.
    - Zoom - Zoom in on one particular word, and its effect on the reader etc.

    & don't forget to talk about the effect on the reader, because you can't get more than a D!

    In your response don't forget to talk about the form, language, imagery, tone, subject matter, and any poetic devices, and their effect on the reader.

    Yeah, either way 5 or 6 detailed main points is good!

    Yeah, so for section B you have to analyse your quotes properly with linguistic features but focus on the context of 1930s America!

    Then you should be fine! Mine are about half a page each (if that) but I've got quite big writing! Don't worry!

    Hey Guys,

    For section B ensure that you pick out quotes that you are able to juice alot of connotations and analysis from. make sure you are not retelling the story and ensure that you are referring back to the question and to the writers intentions and his overall message.
