New page created - Practice essay questions for Part A.
Over the last few years I have worked on creating a bank of possible essay questions to allow my students to practise and prepare for Part A style questions. My students have been using these to aid their revision in the run up to the exam. For each question they review the knowledge needed to answer that question by producing a mind map using their notes and the textbook/blog. They then produce a detailed plan in direct response to the question. Some students will then go on to write out the full essay; others have used it to practise writing an effective paragraph or a conclusion. Whatever approach you decide to take it is important that you practise incorporating both the knowledge and specific essay skills required for Part A.
