Basic Essay Paragraph Structure

Having an essay paragraph structure is crucial as this helps keep you on track while writing and ensures that you’ll be covering all the bases. A good option is PEDAL (Point, Explanation, Detail, Author’s purpose, Link to the wider world) which works effectively for NCEA level 1-3.

Versatile Evidence from Text

To ensure you are well-prepared for a range of questions, make sure to memorise and gather evidence from your film or text that can be applied to a variety of different questions. By collecting around 10 quotes, you can reduce the risk of running out of supporting evidence when answering questions.

Researching Relevance

When relating/linking the themes in the text to the wider world, make sure you’ve done your research on their relevance to modern-day society, history, and the human experience. A substantial part of your grade (particularly between merit and excellence) is determined by your insight.
