This guide has also been written specifically to assist GCSE candidates who are taking the OCR, WJEC, Edexcel and AQA exams in summer 2015 and summer 2016. If that's you, then I can show you why I think having To Kill a Mockingbird as one of your set texts is good news. A clever, yet clear book, the story lends itself well to being unpicked in essays. Read my analysis and essay writing tips and get ready to truly understand what the author wanted to say on racism and prejudice and about how people act when they feel under threat. It is not simply a tale about an innocent man put on trial, but a sustained look at how a community behaves. I can explain why using a child as narrator is a brilliant move, because it strips away adult prejudice to show situations for what they really are. Discover how to write clear, well-structured essays that merit a high grade. Studied the Gavin’s Guide way, To Kill a Mockingbird will make you think, yet won’t leave you overwhelmed. Interested? All you need is a few clear hours and an open, curious mind. Why a Gavin’s Guide? It is likely you have browsed online or gone to a bookshop and discovered that there are a fair few study guides on this book already. Many of them are useful reference points for summaries of the plot and the characters. Few, if any, explain or analyse in as much detail as this guide does how Harper Lee manages and organises our response as we read. Yet, it is understanding this – and being able to communicate that you do to your examiner – that will mean you can achieve your very best. This is a complete guide – it has more than 175 pages. As a private tutor I help individual students improve their grades. Now I would like to extend that support to you! With this clear guide, available in both book and Kindle formats, I can help you: *Get to grips with the plot * Grasp what motivates the characters to act as they do * Improve your essay technique * Explore key Harper Lee themes, including racism, aggression, education and class-divide. *Give your very best under exam conditions. I am also ready to answer any further questions you may have on the text, via my personal email. This is a free service to buyers of my book.show more
