This is a three-part resource for students undertaking the NSW HSC Common Module Texts and Human Experience.

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, The Merchant of Venice, answers a NESA question for this module.

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.
