This booklet is aimed at preparing students for text response essay writing in English. Suitable for students in Years 10 & 11, aged 14 & 15. They can use it to write an essay in response to any book, poem or film. The same format has been successfully used for essay writing in Australia and New Zealand. It is based on the TEEL format of Topic Sentence, Example, Explanation and Concluding thought for each body paragraph. 🙂
