Transcript of Adrian Mole vs Bart Simpson
Bart vs Adrian
describing how things are the same (or similar)
describing how things are different
Sometimes there is no black or white, but shades of grey when it comes to comparing and contrasting
How will my essay look?
Write this scaffolding down in your books:
introduce the 2 texts - give a brief overview of their plot
Say how they are the same/different
give an overview of your essay
2. DEFINE YOUR THEME
3. COMPARISON OF THEME
4. CONTRAST OF THEME
re-cap your essay
re-state your argument
How well do you know the protagonist?
A protagonist is the main character.
This is a good word to use in your essay.
Differences and similarities between Adrian Mole and Bart Simpson:
Draw the Venn diagram in your books and fill it in.
Differences between Adrian and Bart:
Bullied at school
Keeps a diary
Thinks he's an intellectual
Is an only child
Has 2 sisters
Get in trouble at school
Have a best friend
Parents are still together
Parents are getting divorced

10 years old
You will need to look for difference and similarities in how
of the following themes are represented:
having a crush
The Simpson's: Season 13, Episode 11
'The Bart Wants What it Wants'
Watch this Simpson's episode.
Don't forget - you need to compare and contrast the novel to this episode, so you will have to take notes as you watch.
DON'T FORGET TO WRITE DOWN QUOTES!
PLOT: the storyline (what happens)
SETTING: where the story takes place (e.g. in a school etc)
CHARACTERS: the people who are represented in the text
THEME: the central topic, subject or concept that the author is trying to point out
Now that you have (allegedly) read the book and watched the episode...
Draw up a table in your books.
List things that are similar and things that are different.
Both boys mourn the fact that their 'love' is with someone else
Both boys have a best friend
Pandora and Greta both live in big (affluent) houses
They hate their best friend while he is going out with their 'love', but are friends again afterward
The boys' families hang out with the girlfriend's family
Both ask adult males for advice
Both dads are lower-class (Adrian's doesn't know who his MP is, and his shabby appearance embarrasses Adrian. Homer gets slapped with a riding crop at the Preparatory School fair for pointing rudely)
Pandora goes to Adrian's school, Greta goes to a different school
Pandora and Adrian meet in class, Bart saves Greta from a bully
Bart never has a crush on Greta
Adrian fantasizes about Pandora (p.36), Bart never does
Bart goes out with Greta before Greta goes out with his best friend Milhouse
Bart never fantasizes about revenge on his best friend, Adrian does (p. 23, 25,50)
Bart's parents are together and love each other. Adrian's parents are divorcing
Ned Flanders (next-door neighbour) isn't trying to seduce Marge (Bart's mum)
Don't Forget to TEEL!
Write a sentence describing what your paragraph will be about e.g. your opinion about the similarities/differences between the main characters
Explain what your topic sentence is about
Give an example (evidence) from the text ('text' here means both the novel and the episode)
Write a sentence that explains your example
Write a sentence that connects this paragraph to the next paragraph OR rounds off your argument
Here's one I prepared earlier...
In primary school
Not academically intelligent
Doesn't keep a diary
This is what you will be in, if you don't hand in a draft next week!
