IB DP Language A Language and Literature – sample text analysis – Disney letter

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, the HL essay, or Paper 1 and analyze it accordingly. (This text would not be appropriate for Paper 2).

Some elements of the text to consider:

  • The images on the top and bottom of the text
  • The year the letter was sent
  • The formatting of the letter and the extent to which it conforms to the characteristics of a business letter
  • How the letter responds to the idea of a woman working in the Inking and Painting department
  • How the letter dissuades the applicant from coming to Hollywood to pursue a career.
