Structuring essays and answering the question

More helpful resources from the VCE Advantage vodcast series.

In these two vodcasts Joy Whiteside, Teacher Librarian at Overnewton College, guides students through the important steps to writing an essay that is clear and well structured and explores aspects of the language of questions: do you know the difference between questions that ask you to compare and those that ask you to contrast? Can you discuss and also evaluate a point of view? (with reference to the State Library of Victoria’s Ergo site).

The vodcasts are available via the VCE Advantage link on the merspi front page,  directly from the merspi YouTube channel and through FUSE for all schools – search for them by title.

Use them to support students who are struggling with essays and alert your teachers to them. Great for students at lower secondary levels too.
