Tudor essay question: - Intro: Define, criteria, arguments and judgment - P1: Arguments in the support/on the factor of the question (3 x PEEL paragraphs) - P2: Arguments against the question (3 x PEEL paragraphs) - Conclusion: Repeat your judgement and arguments that

support America source question: - Provenance: PEE - Tone: PEE - Arguments/context: PEE - Overall value America essay question: - Intro: Define, criteria, arguments and judgment - P1: Arguments in the support/on the factor of the question (3 x PEEL paragraphs) - P2: Arguments against the question (3 x PEEL paragraphs) - Conclusion: Repeat your judgement and arguments that support Grade book revision: Now that we understand the structure we need to have a think about sustained arguments: 1. What is a sustained argument? 2. How do you ensure you have a sustained argument throughout your answer?

TASK: You are going to be split into one of 3 groups and You will either need to write an introduction, paragraph or conclusion to the question on the next slide. We will all need to agree on what the judgement is going to be! Grade book revision: The question we are going to work on is: To what extent was foreign policy successful in the years 1485-1509? You will now work collaboratively in your groups to write your part of the answer on the desks and then will put the desks together to see how well we have created a sustained argument Introduction: You need to define, criteria, arguments and judgement Conclusion: repeat the judgement and use the

arguments in support TASK: Paragraph: PEEL structure. Make sure you think about the judgement and link back to the question!
