For aaaaages now we have wanted to share with you a REAL essay that we wrote in a high school exam and deconstruct it, so you or your teen can see EXACTLY what you need to do to get a good grade, and we finally have!
Click on the button below to download this easy to read two page document that deconstructs a REAL essay Clare wrote at high school
For this essay Clare wrote about two famous poems by Wilfred Owen. Not into poetry?! Do NOT let that stop you from reading this document. No matter what type of essay you’re writing, the essay techniques we look at in this document are applicable to any essay on any topic — regardless of the subject.
We have included warts and all — all of the typos and grammatical errors — so you can see that any essay you write in an exam does not need to be perfect to be really good!
Remember you can email Clare a sample of something you or your teen has written and we will provide you with personalised feedback within 3 days (for free of course!). Just email the sample to firstname.lastname@example.org 😉
Happy essay writing!
