This is a three-part resource for students undertaking the NSW HSC Advanced English Module B: Close Study of a Text.


1. 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.


2. A sample essay for the prescribed text, Great Expectations, answers the 2019 HSC question:

Almost anybody can be reformed, but not everybody can be redeemed.

To what extent does this view align with your understanding of Great Expectations?


3. 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.
