Mrs Birling An Inspector Calls Model Answer

(1)
A Grade 8+ Model answer for the character of Mrs Birling. To achieve a high mark in the exam, students need to create a convincing, perceptive argument about the character where they can thread a critical stance through their response. The thread through this response is - could we pity Mrs Birling for her bourgeoisie, supercilious attitude instead of the initial dislike we have for her. After reading the model answer and assessing it using a bronze, silver gold differentiated task, students need to plan their own response and add in the higher level terminology included: hubris, allegorical, supercilious, proletariat and bourgeoisie.

Macbeth model answers - betrayal

(0)
Three answers that show different levels of the mark scheme, for the theme of betrayal. I have asked students to read all three, highlight the sections that are analytical and explain what makes 2, better than 1 and what makes response 3, better than 2. There is a bronze, silver, gold task and PYT for challenge. I have also demonstrated that the theme questions should be explored in an evaluative way, as done in response 3, where the answer explores the type of betrayal too.
