Have a look at the following text. For focus, we will use only pages 2-3 and 4-5:

Start by thinking:

  • Who wrote this? Why?
  • What is the message?
  • By which medium is the message communicated? (what is the mode?)
  • Who is the audience? What is appealing to them?
  • What is the (intended) effect on them?

Your exam will come with two guiding questions designed to guide you to a particular aspect of the text. You should use these questions to help you but you should address aspects of the text outside the questions too. Consider:

To what effect has image been employed in the text?
