IB DP Language A Language and Literature – sample text analysis – extract from Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Before you read the “spoiler” bullet points below take a careful look at the text. Imagine it is a text you are using for your DP Language A Language and Literature assessments: the individual oral or the HL essay and analyze it accordingly.

Some elements of the text to consider:

  • The length of the extract and whether or not it is the right length for the individual oral
  • A possible global issue for the individual oral
  • How the use of positive adjectives switches quite quickly to negative ones near the start of the extract

(A note to my own students: we will study this text later in the course and it likely you will only use it for Paper 2. Regardless, this is still worthwhile analysis practice).
