External Prep. in Short Stories
Through looking at short stories, we'll practise essay writing. This block will give you lots of practise and opportunities for feedback in getting ready for practise exams. This is an opportunity to sharpen your essay planning and writing abilities. In addition to the practise essays completed in class, a plethora of material will be made available to support you
We will review essay format, close reading, unfamiliar text, and visual text analysis. Think of this as a crash course that is helpful even for students who are not intending to sit the externals.
