This is a three-part resource for students undertaking the NSW HSC Advanced English Module B: Critical 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, Jane Austen's Emma, answers a sample HSC assessment question:
Emma begins far from perfect and ends up a little less than perfect.
To what extent does this statement align with your understanding of the character development in Austen’s novel?
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.
