I am a Primary School Teacher with a child in Year 13 currently studying Eduqas Religious Studies. Last year, her teacher, who has now left the school, gave her essays A's, telling students that their analysis and evaluative essay (Part B questions) do not need a specifc structure, but rather just 'for' and 'against' paragraphs and a conclusion. This year, a new teacher, who previously taught from OCR, insists that students must structure their answers in PEACH (Point, Evidence, Analysis, Counterargument and How- meaning how this counters the previous point), students must also explain their points with knowledge and she does not give any marks if an answer does not follow this structure of PEACH. There is no standard exemplary essay that we can find due to the change in the curriculum, and this teacher does not reinforce the previous teacher's method of essay writing, including the use of examples. In the textbooks, there are examples, but they are not exemplary. However, even these do not appear to be structured in such a way. Would really appreciate any ideas or information about how an answer should be structured, and if knowledge is important in an evaluative essay or not. Thank you.
