Step By Wicked Step- Simple Answering Techniques

Hello my lovely students,

I know that SPM is really just around the corner and some of you are bored to death when you have to read and reread all the notes that I gave to all of you previously in my extra classes. However, some of your friends came to see me just now and asked a very interesting question on how to write a simple answer for the question on literature component (Step By Wicked Step). I hope this sample will help some of you, especially for my students who are quite weak in finding and providing evidences from the novel.

So basically, I showed my students this simple template. 

If the question wants you to give one character/moral value/theme/event, give ONLY one and support your answer by giving 3 simple elaborations/evidences from the novel.

e.g.: Choose one character that you like and give your reasons why you like the character.

Your answer  should be something like this:

Character I like : Claudia

Why do I like her? 
a) She is a kind girl.
Elaboration 1
During her father's birthday party, Claudia wears her green pyjamas given by her father's girlfriend, Stella. She decides to do this because she feels that the guests in the party are very rude when they refuse to talk to Stella. They act like Stella is invisible and Claudia feels angry because Stella is actually a very nice person.

b) She is loyal to her mother.
Elaboration 2
Claudia is a very loyal daughter. She knows that her mother hates the fact that her father is happy with a new woman in his life so she pretends that she is unhappy when she has to go to her father's house. Claudia also refuses to accept Stella's kindness because she wants to show that she is loyal to her mother.

c) She is mature and wise.
Elaboration 3
Claudia feels that the guests for her father's birthday party are very rude. They do not want to acknowledge that Stella is her father's new love by giving her a cold shoulder during the party. Claudia is very angry with all those immature adults so she decides to give all of them a lesson by wearing her new green pyjamas and showing it off in front of the guess, hinting that Stella and her are very close. The guests are ashamed so they start to treat Stella nicely after the incident.

So, you have the points and the elaborations. You next step should be writing them nicely in paragraphs.Your answer might look like this.

     From the novel 'Step By Wicked Step' by Anne Fine, I like Claudia from the story the Green Pyjamas. I like Claudia because she is kind, loyal and she can be very mature and wise.

     Claudia is a very kind girl.  During her father's birthday party, Claudia wears her green pyjamas given by her father's girlfriend, Stella. She decides to do this because she feels that the guests in the party are very rude when they refuse to talk to Stella. They act like Stella is invisible and Claudia feels angry because Stella is actually a very nice person.

     Other than that, Claudia is also a loyal daughter to her mother.She knows that her mother hates the fact that her father is happy with a new woman in his life so she pretends that she is unhappy when she has to go to her father's house. Claudia also refuses to accept Stella's kindness because she wants to show that she is loyal to her mother.

     Lastly, Claudia shows that she is very mature and wise. Claudia feels that the guests for her father's birthday party are very rude. They do not want to acknowledge that Stella is her father's new love by giving her a cold shoulder during the party. Claudia is very angry with all those immature adults so she decides to give all of them a lesson by wearing her new green pyjamas and showing it off in front of the guess, hinting that Stella and her are very close. The guests are ashamed so they start to treat Stella nicely after the incident.

     From these three reasons, I choose Claudia as the character I like the most. Claudia shows that she is a good daughter to both her mother and father and she is also kind enough to accept Stella as her future step mother.

There you have it! A simple answer for you to use. I would like to remind all of you that this is not an A script answer. This is just a simple sample answer to help you gain enough points and I hope you would at least write something simple like this rather than not showing any attempt to answer the question, ok? :)
