These are the Google slides with the information about narrative technique. Remember that the assessment in Text and Context is an essay.
While reading Fatelessness, you should be making notes on the narrative techniques applied by Kertesz.
Here is another link with more detail explanations of the techniques. I suggest to print this document and keep it in your Lang and Lit folder to accompany you during reading or study sessions.

Your test will have the following components:
Is composed by 3 key elements:
Ahh the body! Where your argument resides. This is where you prove your thesis wrong or right! by providing the proper examples.
A topic sentence for each paragraph: Basically this means that you should have like a mini intro to your paragraphs. A topic sentence is a sentence in the beginning of the paragraph which clarifies to the reader what you intend to discuss in the paragraph.
Well structured paragraphs: this means you should jump form one idea to another which has nothing to do with the previous one in two consecutive paragraphs. Your transformation from one idea to another should be flawless, else you will seem confused to the examiner.
Well argued ideas: Don’t just state your ideas; provide analysis, examples, comments and anything which shows that you’re not just stating the obvious but are discussing something you fully understand!
Be convincing: Try to convince people that what you are saying is right! This would help you to write strong essays in general.
Reread the whole of your essay, realize what it is you argued all through your essay, then conclude your ideas in one small paragraph in the end.
