Unraveling the mysteries of AO3...

Baldwin:
Let's talk about something important. (sees Lemmon pouring coffee). Put that coffee down. Coffee's for closer's only. You think I'm fuckin' with you? I am not fuckin' with you. I'm here from downtown. I'm here from Mitch and Murray. And I'm here on a mission of mercy. Your name's Levine?

Jack Lemmon
: Yeah.

Baldwin:
You call yourself a salesman, you son of a bitch.

Ed Harris:
I don't gotta listen to this shit.

Baldwin:
You certainly don't pal 'cause the good news is you're fired. The bad news is you got all you got, just one week to regain your job, starting with tonight, starting with tonight's sits. Oh, have I got your attention now? Good. 'Cause we're adding a little something to this month's sale contest. As you all know, first prize is a Cadillac El Dorado. Anybody want to see second prize? Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is your fired. You get the picture? You laughing now?
1.
WHAT
does AO1 mean?
2.
HOW
do we hit AO1?
3. WHY
is AO1 crucial in jobs?
Q on dramatic tension rewrite...
"In this bit, it is all scary as Baldwin's guy shouts a lot and uses harsh words to show his unfriendly relations with others:
"You call yourself a salesman, you son of a bitch?
" The question is asked with a violent feel behind it, and this shows the conflict in the office".
CAN
you use 2 discourse markers?
CAN
you use the tech term: tenor?
CAN
you research and the use the term: "male chauvinism"?
"At the start of the clip the girl asks a question, "
What are you so afraid of?
" This shows that she is taking charge of the guy and bossing the man around, which seems unusual, with the questioning voice showing this..."
CAN
you use at least 4 terms
to bring in some of your AO1
terminology?
CAN
you research and use the term:
"subversion of stereotypical gender
norms"?
HOW
is the interchange structured?
Hint: research 'turn taking'.
AO2: "Show detailed understanding when
analysing the ways in which structure and
language shape meanings"
1.WHAT
is AO2 all about?

2.HOW
can you ensure you hit AO2?

3.
WHY
does AO2 nearly always combine
with AO1?
Q. on relationships....
HOW
would this text affect you if we changed the
form
? AO2 is all about justifying the form and how that adds to the audience's reception to the piece.
HOW
does the fact that it is drama within a video-game affect the emotions?
AO3: "Explore relationships between texts
and analysing the importance of contextual
factors in their production and reception"
1.
WHEN
in your essay should you use AO3?

2.
HOW
are 'production' and 'reception' different?

3.
WHAT
kind of connections could we make between texts? HINT: Think about your other AOs!
Many a vanished year and age,
And tempest's breath and battle's rage,
Have swept o'er Corinth; yet she stands
A fortress formed to Freedom's hands.

Lord Byron 'The Siege of Corinth'
Q. on war...
Hint: Corinth is in Greece, the
Ottomans are trying to capture
it in the poem!
HOW
would a modern reader interpret
this poem? Does this differ to how an
18th century reader would interpret it?
HOW
would a British multicultural audience (re)interpret this clash between Islamic Ottomans
and Christian Greeks?
CAN
you bring in any context about the Ottomans from the documentary?
WHY
is the learning of such specialist vocabularies prized by employers?
Byron makes the city of Corinth sound like a female to make us feel bad for the Greeks:
"yet she stands/ A fortress formed to freedom's hands.
" Here loads of words are used to draw sympathy like "freedom" which is worth prot..

Use of discourse markers to highlight links between sentences.
AO2:
Analyse the structure of the text(s)
Explore different audiences and interpretations
Analyse stage directions as creating meaning

Use historical context to inform reading of the text
Every point has a comparison to link text
