This is a three-part resource for students undertaking the NSW HSC Advanced English Module A: Textual Conversations.
A generic essay plan shows students how to compose an essay suitable for Stage 6, progressing them from the simpler PEEL/TEAL models of Stage 4 and 5.
A sample essay for the prescribed texts The Outsider and The Meursault Investigation answers the 2020 HSC question:
In textual conversations, the later text is often seen as a shadow, lacking the originality and power of the earlier.
To what extent is this statement true of the texts you have studied in this module?
- There is also a second copy of the essay, marked up to show how it follows the plan, and with five short questions which require students to engage critically with the essay and its form.
If you’re providing each student with a copy, please remember to buy a licence for each copy. Our products are priced to make this possible. Thanks for supporting teachers who write!
