Approaching a theme essay at IGCSE

This is  a lesson borne out of a need to give back a mock exam essay to my Year 11 class.

The focus is on trying to avoid students simply listing a series of events or characters who relate to the theme and to develop an awareness of the level of objective analysis required in writing an essay such as this.

I hope it might be helpful.
