    It threw me a bit as well. Technically you could come at it from every viewpoint if you make it work.

    What did you guys talk about? I did the intro, then into what stage the child was and why, then talked about Micheal Halliday functions, Piaget and cognition theory and Bruner with social interaction and CDS and a bit of Chomsky

    I did Piaget, Chomsky, Halliday, Bellugi and McNeil question development and Nelsons NASM functions with a bit of Genie but I feel like it was all a bit underdeveloped :/

    Oh wow it sounds good, we weren’t taught about Bellugi, Mc Neil or Nelson 😂

    I only just realised afterwards that I could have debated it... rather than spending 10 minutes trying to find instances to support the claim in the transcript (

    In the comparison I compared the metaphors, representation of patriotism for the British demographic (reference to V.A.D.s in text B during an extremely jingoistic time and the interrogative title of Text A) and also the themes in both of a ‘battle’ (in text A they discussed fighting in a supermarket and also used the superlative ‘louder’ to suggest competition, and text B graphologically separated the women immediately through “women to women”, i related it to context of suffragettes and that as this text was evidently mid-war, and women didn’t get the vote until 1918, the writer might be highlighting the predicament in women battling one another when they should be fighting for their own liberation) I thought section A was nice!

    I wouldn't worry. Different places teach different ways to approach the questions. My teacher even said that my college teach section A differently to other centres and its one of the best performing English departments so it's clearly doing something right. I was always taught to have a paragraph to compare audience or purpose, two paragraphs to compare different subject representations and 2 or 3 comparing use of languages. I'm sure whatever you've been taught to do is good enough to get you your grade.

    Yea i think each college teaches the subject differently, luckily our teacher has a way of teaching that seems to get her class the top grades but we shall see I think the Q threw a few people off. Good luck !!
