    A Kestrel For A Knave.

    3 star(s)

    Billy does not seem to have a good future ahead of him. His life looks very bleak. To get a bit of money Billy does a paper round. He gets on his bike every morning and delivers papers from his local newsagents; except this morning, his brother, Jud, took Billy's bike. So this causes Billy to be late for his job. As Billy collects his papers he steals some chocolate, showing he is hungry. Billy stales quite a lot, but only food and drink, I think he does it because he is always hungry and doesn't get enough food at home.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Compare the way Mrs Casper, Mr Sugden and Mrs Farthing treat Billy in

    "In conclusion, it is obvious that each character reported, treats Billy in a different way. All characters except Mr Farthing, but especially Mr Sugden either physically bullies Billy, or severely threatens to bully Billy. However, if Mr Farthing bullies Billy, it is for his own good, and to build up his confidence."
