2 or 3 of the children in my Y9 GCSE English Lit. group are producing evaluative/analytical essays demonstrating most/all of the criteria of a highest band response. Would you share advice on how you advance the progress of pupils of this high calibre during essay feedback lessons? I don’t want to limit them or waste their time with more of the same, you know? Do I ask them to make comparisons between another text? Or do I ask them to consider a reader response from a particular political/historical perspective? Any wisdom gratefully received.
