Mrs Birling An Inspector Calls Model Answer
EnglishGrade5

Mrs Birling An Inspector Calls Model Answer

(0)
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.
