For example, in my essay I am going to talk about: The use of music and how it builds tension

The inclusion of new characters and their storylines Example 1 - The Station Master, and his crush on the florist. Example 2 - The two elderly artsy people Ill talk about how these two new, smaller sub-plots add another layer to the film, possibly for the enjoyment of the older, adult audience members.

emotional moment in the novel the novel Use a quote if Quote / possible and explain Evidence the tense / emotional + Explain moment in detail Example of a scene where music creates Moment in a stressed or tense atmosphere (same or the film similar scene to novel) Explain the effect whats happening and Evidence

First body paragraph Second body paragraph Third body paragraph A conclusion ESSAYS ARE LIKE HAMBURGERS Introduction

BP1 BP2 BP3 Conclusion ESSAYS ARE LIKE HAMBURGERS Your introduction should be similar your conclusion. They summarise the information in your paragraphs. They keep the essay

together (just like burger buns). Your body paragraphs are part of the whole essay (or burger), but they each have a different idea (or flavour)! STEP FIVE: PLANNING Mapping out your essay lay out your topics clearly: An introduction

First body paragraph - USE OF MUSIC Second body paragraph - ADDITIONAL CHARACTERS Third body paragraph - SLAP STICK COMEDY A conclusion STEP ONE: DRAFTING Introductions For a comparative essay, your introduction needs to introduce the following things:

Your reworded essay question. The AUTHOR of the novel and the TITLE of the novel The DIRECTOR of the film and the TITLE of the film The three differences you will talk about.

Your introduction should touch on the three ideas you will explore in your body paragraphs. This means you explain each of the three differences in some detail. STEP ONE: DRAFTING Introductions Your introduction needs to begin with your main contention. That is your rewording of the essay topic. Then state and briefly explain your three points that support this contention on the topic (the elements you decided on in your planning stages).

Your writing should flow nicely! STEP ONE: DRAFTING Introductions REMEMBER: Your introduction needs to begin with your main contention. That is your rewording of the topic.

Reworded essay topic. Points ONE, TWO and THREE (which will be explained in separate body paragraphs) STEP ONE: DRAFTING Introductions We have reworded our essay topic. (STEP TWO / Reddish section)

We know what each paragraph will be about. (STEP FOUR / Orange, colourful section) 1st paragraph on MUSIC 2nd paragraph on NEW CHARACTERS 3rd paragraph on SLAPSTICK COMEDY = Ready to write our introduction! INTRODUCTION: EXAMPLE #1 The Invention of Hugo Cabret,by Brian Selznick, is about a twelve year old boy living in Paris in 1931. Both of Hugos parents have passed away, and he has been left in the care of his uncle who operates and takes care of the clocks at the train station. The novel has been since adapted into a film entitled Hugo, directed by Martin Scorsese. Even though the graphic novel and the film share a similar plot, they also have many differences. In

his adaptation, director Martin Scorsese implements a number of alterations to bring the novel alive. In his effort to create an entertaining version of the novel, Scorsese incorporates music, introduces new characters, and uses a lot of slapstick comedy.

INTRODUCTION: EXAMPLE #2 The Invention of Hugo Cabret is about a twelve year old boy living in Paris in 1931. Both of Hugos parents have passed away, and he has been left in the care of his uncle who operates and takes care of the clocks at the train station. The novel has been since adapted into a film entitled Hugo, directed by Martin Scorsese. Even though the graphic novel and the film share a similar plot, they also have many differences. Elements such as dialogue, sound and visual

imagery, humour (or lack of), and purpose given to certain characters all convey the differences between the two texts. Judging by this persons introduction, what will their be the focus of their body paragraphs? STEP TWO: DRAFTING Body Paragraphs Your body paragraphs must include: A topic sentence (identifies your main point) An explanation Some evidence

A linking/concluding sentence (some more information on this) (quote from the novel, clear description of a page of the novel or scene from the film, etc.) (back to the essay question) We all know the TEEL structure by now! STEP TWO: DRAFTING Body Paragraphs Writing Topic Sentences

The Equation: REWORDED PART OF ESSAY TOPIC + PARAGRAPH TOPIC So my essay will use the following: Paragraph One: Reworded essay topic + My element (music) Paragraph Two: Reworded essay topic + My element (new characters) Paragraph Three: Reworded essay topic + My element (slapstick comedy) STEP TWO: DRAFTING Body Paragraphs A sophisticated paragraph has more than one piece of evidence, and detailed explanations.

You can also change the order of your evidence and explanations to create variety in your writing. Switching back and forth is good! For your essay, aim to have at least two quotes/ pieces of evidence per paragraph. STEP TWO: DRAFTING Body Paragraphs A scaffold to use (element of music): One of the elements

that Martin Scorsese incorporates into his film adaptation of Hugo is music. Throughout the film, the soundtrack is used to ___________________. A strong example of this is during _______________________. Here, the audience is made to feel ____________________________ because of _______________________. Another example of the use of music is ______________________. Through the use of music in this scene, the audience is inspired to think about ______________________ and to feel

_____________________. As highlighted, music is one of the elements that Martin Scorsese incorporates into FIN
