Advanced Higher English DissertationWatch
Hi, we got told that comparing poems did better last year marks wise and they are also better as it would be easier for teachers to track progress. Hope that helps.
But, if you really want to do a book it's better to focus on one and back up with secondary sources as the word count is only 3k and you might struggle tighting it up because doing comparatives were better with the old AH english word count which was 4,000-5,000?
I was a bit disappoited having to change my dissertation topic. I also had to chose two books that were easy to read and analyse in a short space
of time (since first drafts are due). I think you could do a lot with The Color Purple and To Kill a Mocking bird; many different angles you could take. But I've always heard poetry is easier to write about, but that isnt an option where i study AH.
Your topic seems good though!! I am almost certain there's someone in my class doing racism, so I'll see if I can find out what books they've read
