I’ve improved the FCE Essay “pack” – the powerpoint is now available in pptx format – I’ve changed some of the special fonts I was using for images.
Step 1: Give out, both the “How to Write FCE Essay”and “Three Steps, Writing An Essay” handouts. Ask your students read them carefully.
Step 2: Ask your students in pairs to underline the key words and think of some synonyms or phrases for them.
Step 3: Now ask your students to brainstorm ideas – including the 3rd note.
Step 4: As a class select ideas for the essay and ask the students to think of useful phrases for each of the 5 paragraphs.
Step 5: Now go through the powerpoint – encouraging the students to underline phrases in the model essay and to take notes – highlighting the importance of each step in relation to the assessment scales.
