LANGUAGE HOMEWORK GRADE 7

LANGUAGE HOMEWORK GRADE 7

Dear students

Today as a homework, you have to write the answers of the following two questions in your notebook:

  1. Within these parts, there are a number of sections told in different types of literary text. For example, The chapter headed ‘Letters, Emails, Facebook, Texts (pp 160-7) includes Jack’s letters of apology to Mr Tushman and Julian; Mr Tushman’s reply; a letter to Mr Tushman by Julian’s mother (Melissa Perper Albans); Mr Tushman’s reply to her; John and Amanda Will’s reply to Melissa Albans; messages between Jack and Auggie. Discuss the use of such different forms and how they enhance the framing first-person narrative.
  2. Discuss one of these quotes in relation to the section which follows. e.g. Part Four opens with a quote from Antoine de Saint Exupery’s The Little Prince. Discuss in relation to Jack. Part Five refers to Bernard Pomerance’s The Elephant Man; Part Six is Shakespeare’s Hamlet. How do these relate to the action thematically?
