Transcript of Deduction (2 hour) Tuesday A2 Lang and Lit and Friday AS Lit

A tale of deduction
and subtext...

Going for the A?
In Search of the Subtext...
Going for the A?

Going for the A?
Q.
CAN
you unravel the
subtext
behind this
famous photo of an Afghan refugee?
Try to be a detective to work things out:
religion,
age, ethnic heritage
economic outlook etc...
Now let's zoom in on the topic, as Socrates does:)
Q:
CAN
you use
deductive logic
to pull out
subtextual
details about the friend next to you, just like Sherlock?
E.g. "bites his nails, may imply stress!"
Be nice:)
So
HOW
do we track down those elusive
subtextual
meanings? Well,
we rely on the technique of
deduction.
..(and Sherlock Holmes, of course:)
Slumdog (Millionaires!) and Deductions...
Now we have learnt
HOW deduction
works, lets apply it to language, and start generating
subtextual
understandings of Slumdog Millionaire...
As you are
deducing
the
sub-text
, can you also show
HOW
you have made these
deductions
using your terms? E.g. lexis "waited" has connotations of patience, implying his love for Latika is everlasting...
Going for the A?

So much for the theory....
Now we have demonstrated
HOW
we may use deduction to generate clever
sub-textual
readings, lets apply this to your exam text(s) by writing a PEEC paragraph...
To chase those A*'s,
CAN
you refer to the effects on two different types of reader in your paragraph? E.g. Liberal or Conservative, Masculine, Feminine
.

A 60 (ish!) Second Recap...
With all this knowledge of
deduction
and
sub-texts
flying around, let's just have a 60 second learning time-out:)
1.
WHAT
...(
deduction
and
sub-text
)
3.
WHY
...(jobs)
2. HOW..
.

Putting your (peer!) marking hat on...
Almost there! Now let's start to assess the quality of these
sub-textual deductions
by marking your friend's work:)

Looking how far we've come:)
Now we've broke new ground with
deduction
and
sub-texts,
it's time for one small assessment check.
1.
WHAT
...is deduction and sub-text?
3.
WHY
...do we value
the skill of deduction?

2. HOW..
.does deduction
work?
Going for the A?
CAN
you find and tweet one website for the class to sharpen up their spelling, punctuation and grammar?

Will tweet reminder...
HWK:
CAN
you redraft your PEEL paragraph in light of feedback
CAN
you tweet a SMART target from today's lesson?
CAN
you write your own PEEL paragraph on...with
immaculate
spelling, punctuation and grammar?
Today's lesson will all be about
deduction
and
subtextual meanings,
so let the questions commence:)
Q.
WHAT
is this doc?
Q.
HOW
is the doc used by the examiner
(and me!)
Q.
WHY
is this doc important to our careers?
Q.
HOW
does "subtext" fit in with all this?
