A2 Eng Lan/Lit nta6 synoptic paper

Hi,

I am due to sit the above in a couple of weeks time and seem to have a mental block about analytical frameworks. I am told that we already use these and have been doing so throughout AS and A2 but I am really struggling with the concept itself. Does anyone know what is actually meant by this terminology. The exam is a test of my ability to compare unseen texts and then evaluate the analytical framework used and it is the latter aspect of the paper that I cannot seem to get to grips with. If anyone can simplify what this means I would be most grateful.

Hias far as Im aware this question is similar to the 2nd question from the first paper (NTA1) where we had to analysis our own writing from the previous question (i did the healthy eating leaflet- just to make sure we are talking about the same papers!!- SPEC A), we had to do the same for the the 3rd question on paper 5. We will be basically given 2-3 texts could be about anything we then have to draw information from them to produce our own piece of writing, the 2nd questin is then analylisis what you have just written.
The key is to stick to your frame work - context, genre, language, form, semantics etc.
We have been told its not essential to do this in any particular order.
What Im basically trying to say is DONT PANIC you've already done 2 very similar pieces already!!!

I'm doing exactly the same as you ... one of the most important things to remember when writing an analytical commentary is to identify the audience, purpose & genre of the texts given.

Look at the discourse, phonology, graphaology, literary & linguistic devices etc.

And always keep the question in mind when your writing!!
