This is a three-part resource for students undertaking the NSW HSC Standard English Module A: Language, Identity and Culture.
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, Contemporary Asian Australian Poets, answers the 2019 HSC question for this text choice: Poetry relies primarily on symbolism to create cultural tension. To what extent do you agree with this statement?
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.
