  7. How to Write a Band 6 Discursive Writing Piece for HSC English Module C

    "One of the biggest changes in the new HSC English syllabus is the introduction of a new writing-focused module, aptly named ‘The Craft of Writing.’ Common to both Advanced and Standard English, this module assesses a student’s ability to craft effective pieces of writing in relation to a given audience and purpose. Unlike the other modules, the focus here is not as much on what you’ve written but more so a combination of what you’ve written and how you’ve written it." [click here to read more]
