April 20, As I think that the best way to learn to write an extension essay specifically for Ways of Thinking: After the Bomb is to be shown an example, I will once again be using one of my own pieces of work to explain how to structure a full marks essay.
Firstly, although writing essays for Advanced English can sometimes feel as though you are ticking a series of boxes and indeed, there are aspects of truth to this statement as the syllabus sets a very specific criteriaExtension 1 asks you to extend your own research and reading and provides you with more time during the examination to carefully craft your own unique thesis.
This becomes especially important if you are studying ATB, as English teachers are very well read people and will be able to recognise the work of a student who has put in that little bit of extra effort.
By this I mean completely immersing yourself in the period of time you are studying to truly understand the ways of thinking. This can be done by reading philosophical papers and books from that time, as well as watching films and TV shows either set in that era or made within that era.
You will need an accurate and detailed historical understanding of the years between and Obviously, this period spans several decades in which philosophy, social conditions, political tensions and national concerns in the various countries of the world changed dramatically.
Yes, it is true that an underlying anxiety regarding nuclear weapons, domestic containment, grand narratives etc. An HSC marker will be looking to reward an essay that is able to make comparisons AND subtle distinctions between the concerns of different composers, characters and countries.
Breaking down the Syllabus: It develops their understanding of the ways in which scientific, religious, philosophical or economic paradigms have shaped and are reflected in literature and other texts. Each elective in this module involves the study of at least two print texts, relating to a particular historical period, that demonstrate the influence of particular ways of thinking on literary and other texts.
In addition, students explore, analyse and critically evaluate a range of other texts that reflect these ideas. Students explore the ways that values are inscribed in particular texts and how they are reflected by texts.
They consider whether and why texts are valued in their own time. They also consider why and by whom those texts are valued today.
For example, mention specific philosophers and their ways of thinking, and then go on to explain why this influence a composers representation of a particular paradigm in their work.
Internalising the significance of this point will be the key to writing a good essay. Make sure you are able to articulate why this is true of the particular texts you are studying. A fantastic way to do this is to mention the recognisable and enduring struggles of the human condition that are reflected in the work and be specific, e.
OR to say that texts are valued today by showing exactly how things have changed. If you can, try to extrapolate this subtle link between the things that change and the things that remain constant as a part of the human experience.
How to write an Introduction: In this way, by drawing upon a multiplicity of competing discourses, composers seek to capture a variety of post-war struggles.
For example, if you are discussing philosophy, it is obvious that you are talking about the philosophical paradigm. In paragraph one, you want to introduce your discussion of your first major paradigm issue. As with most Extension One paragraphs, you should probably try to integrate discussion of two texts, or at least make some sort of comparison between two of your texts to show the marker that you are conscious of existing similarities and differences: Comparatively, Samuel Becket explores the absurdity of the human condition through his use of stage position humour.
Paragraph Three Paragraph Three is often a good place to introduce your next major idea and text. Use this paragraph to draw comparisons or highlight stark differences in authorial intentions and ways of thinking: Towards the end of the movie, Thornhill is pursued by a crop duster flown by unseen operatives who make several attempts on his life.
Thus Hitchcock seeks to capture the futility of struggling against post-bomb societal constraints. In this way, resurrected from the depths of self-doubt, Plath highlights that although transformation from a state of impotence to agency is fraught with anguish, societal constraints upon identity can be figuratively shed.
Drawing upon clashing expectations and ideas, composers explore the conflicts of an absurd postmodern reality in which individuals strive to reconcile their identity with prevalent social constructs. I hope this guide and example has been of use to you, good luck!After The Bomb.
