Sadly not that type of peeing. The PEE we’re talking about is all about backing up your genius insights into GCSE English language texts with evidence. By doing this you’ll show that you understand the text fully and can prove it.
PEE stands for Point, Evidence, Explanation.
To write effectively about your GCSE English language texts you should first make a point. Let’s take John Steinbeck’s book Of Mice and Men as an example.
Curley’s wife is regarded as provocative by the men – this is your point. Then provide the evidence – in this case a passage from the text. “She ‘ain’t concealin’ nothing…she got the eye goin’ all the time on everybody,” says Whit – this is your evidence. Then explain or expand your point. Whit’s comment clearly suggests that Curley’s wife is too flirty – this is a male judgement of her which does not consider how she feels. This is your explanation or expansion.
You’ll find lots information to help you PEE in our English Language Quotations and Analysis titles. Use them as part of your GCSE English revision and learning.
