Schedule Warm-up: Video Othello Summative Exam Written Commentary Advice As with an essay, you should prepare and plan your commentary. This means getting to grips with the passage or poem by underlining key words, making notes, highlighting connections, marking

how it divides into sections. . . . Then, on the basis of this preparation, you should plan your approach to the commentary so that it presents a coherent interpretation, not just a series of unconnected points. (University College Written Commentary Advice Introduction Framework for the main body of your

commentary. Situate the passage within the work as a whole, e.g. beginning, end, after or before a particular key moment. Do not retell the plot at length. (University College of London) Written Commentary Advice

Introduction In situating the passage, and on the basis of your preparation and plan, you should also formulate in a brief but open way what you think it is about, what its theme or role is, as a key or framework to your commentary. For example, it may be a turning point in the narrative or key exposition of a character. In this it can be helpful to say something about the mode of the passage. For example, is it

narrative or descriptive? Is it humorous or satirical? (University College of London) Written Commentary Advice The Main Body of the Commentary Concerned with the passage or poem as a whole, but also show the development through the passage or poem. Appropriate structure for writing a commentary may be to follow this

development. Pay attention to the compositional structure of the passage or poem: does it divide into sections and, if so, how? What is the compositional movement through the passage or poem? Written Commentary Advice The Main Body of the Commentary Illuminate the theme or themes (or mood or

emotion) that the passage or poem illustrates and explores. How is it presented? How does the theme develop? How do contrasting themes relate? Is the theme typical of the story as a whole? (University College of London) Written Commentary Advice

The Main Body of the Commentary When you refer to the passage or poem, this should be done clearly and succinctly by reference, for example, to first, second etc. paragraphs or sentences (for prose), to first, second etc. stanzas and lines (for poetry). You do not therefore need to quote large sections from the text. (University College of London)

Written Commentary Advice The Main Body of the Commentary Theme may be linked to characterization. Consider what is revealed about a character & how this is done Relate this to other aspects of the passage too. Pay particular attention to questions of narration: what is the narrative viewpoint and does it shift? What is the role of the narrator?

Is there direct or indirect interior monologue? Whose words are these the characters or narrators or authors? How does irony function in the passage? What is the role of dialogue or description? (University College of London) Written Commentary Advice The Main Body of the Commentary Look for any key and repeated words/motifs,

and for any tropes. What is the significance of the key words or motifs? Is there any use of imagery? Are there any metaphors or similes? What is their significance? Are they standard or original? Are there any other tropes exaggeration, paradox etc.? Written Commentary Advice

The Main Body of the Commentary When looking at style in terms of lexis and syntax, you should consider what kinds of word are being used and their register. Does one particular part of speech play a particularly significant role? Are there a lot of adjectives or verbs? Is the lexis conversational? How does the choice of words relate to characterisation? In terms of syntax, pay attention to sentence type and structure. Are there questions or

exclamations? Is the syntax simple or complex or convoluted? Is it ornate? This may relate to Written Commentary Advice Conclusion A brief conclusion to round off your commentary enables you to summarise the way that you have illuminated what the poem or passage is about and how it

works. (University College of London) Summative Commentary: Othello 20 minutes to annotate Strongly suggest creating a simple outline Rest of the class time to write commentary and essay are the same structure!
