Spend time writing a plan for at least three of the questions below.  I would suggest using mind maps and then sharing them with a partner.  You can also take pictures of them and upload them to your blog. For part A of each question – which specific quotations from the piece will you use […]

Love and hate are presented in Julius Caesar by the characters: Calpurnia, Cassius, Brutus and Antony. I also believe the theme of love in Julius Caesar is honourable love and that In Julius Caesar ‘there is a thin line between love and hate’. There are similarities between love and hate as I feel Cassius’s jealousy […]

Text response coursework Dear John Humphrey’s, You wrote an article in 2007 titled “I h8 txt msgs” and you argued “how texting is wrecking our language”.

I was high up in the stands when I heard the roaring announcement come from the tannoy echoing the demand for all year nine hundred metre finalist to head towards the track. As I stood up to make my way to the track I felt the adrenaline rushing through my blood, my heart began to pulsate at an accelerating rate and my legs began tremble beneath me. It felt as if I was descending from the peak of Mount Everest when making my journey towards the track, as each step I took required a heftier exhale than the last.

I finally arrived when Mr Taylor began assigning us to our chosen lanes. Around me I felt the ambience of the crowd build up in volume as they began to cheer for their favourites, the ambience around contestants changed as they began to converse amongst each other about if they thought they could win and who they thought could win; I remember a conversation in particular involving Kaine Doyley and Tobi Adaje when Kaine said to Tobi ‘ I’m scared of Razzaq I think he might win’. My own state of mind started to change as I began to motivate myself with encouraging words like ‘come on Razzaq. you can do it. no one is better than you. And your the best’.

It was time, we made our movements towards the starting line and was told to get set, those were the final words that were heard. ‘Bang!’ the gun has been shot and the race has begun. I’ve reacted the fastest so I’ve gained an early lead. My legs and feet are moving rapidly and my arms are pumping ferociously in a horizontal motion. I’m looking from the corner of my eye to see if I am in the lead and to see who’s next to me but I see no one and I start to pull away from the pact and the lead is becoming apparent, I start to motivate myself again as I now know I win this. I  hear the booming cheers from the crowd for me urging me to win and to run faster. The end is near all I have to do now is maintain it and ill secure a gold medal, but I can feel myself slowing down and getting tired I tell myself hang in there, the race is almost ever however I see Montel Williams coming through and closing the gap between me and him so I know I need to push myself to the very end. The race has now ended and I have won.

Well it has now been nine years since and I can finally say you were wrong. Texting hasn’t ruined our language; in fact I believe it has saved it […]
