You don’t need to be a witch to write good essays. You will need to, however, gather your notes and ideas, put them on trial, and – if necessary – curse them. By the end of this course, you will have notes that will survive any trial, either in the courtroom or the exam room. During this course you will also use these notes to develop your answers to a range of essay questions. This course prepares for the HSC Advanced English Paper 1, Section II.
