I am doing an Inspector Calls at GCSE right now Our teacher gave us a writing frame with the following: intro, 3 PEAL paragraphs and a conclusion. Write an intro which breifly explains what the play is about and present your main points on Eric in a sentence or two. Then give your first point, and make it quite open, not something like 'Eric is shown as childish', but instead, 'Priestley presents Eric to be an immature and etc etc character

I studied An Inspector Calls and to make it easier, I watched character analysis videos on YouTube and versions of the play which give a general idea about the character of Eric.

write about Eric's development in character from the start of the play through to the end for the overall essay structure. depends on the question tbh but its likely to be about that

The vaguest question you could get is: How does Priestley present Eric? Maybe they'll specify it down, e.g. in Act 1, 2 or 3.

The most specific questions you could get would be along the lines of: Explore a moment in which Eric 'does something' (e.g. argues with a family member, gains a new understanding, etc)

Anyway, if it's on Eric, you can basically guarantee you will need plenty of quotes from him - and since he is basically not even there in the whole of Act 2, you know you will probably end up talking about either: 1) When Eric opposes his father over Mr Birling's decision to fire Eva (there are loads of nice quotes for this in Act 1). Or 2) When Eric has a heated argument with both Mr and Mrs Birling in the middle of act 3, before they realised the Inspector could be a hoax. Or finally 3) When Eric continues to defend Eva (with Sheila) but Mr and Mrs Birling pretend everything is back to normal when it is revealed the Inspector is fake (near end of Act 3)
