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 name and date at the top of the image – the text is clearly a classroom handout
- The use of the sandwich to represent an essay and what type of audience this image is suited for
- The sparse amount of detail in the diagram – enough for it to be recognizable as a sandwich but not enough detail to be distracting
- The spaces in the diagram which could be for students to make notes and plan an essay
