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, The Castle answers the 2019 HSC question:
Film relies on dialogue 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.
