This is a PPT helping KS3 students to write a Compare & Contrast type of essay (eg. for poetry). There is a preparatory lesson to understand what types of essay can be used for this Compare & Contrast task, with an explanatory video, but also with the acknowledgement of the Block Method using the Temple of Knowledge formula (from 5 paragraphs, downgraded for KS3 to only 4). The second lesson, they will have to start focusing on completing a Venn diagram, which will then be reflected in their PEEL paragraphs, following the Block Method. I hope you will find it useful.You can spend a number of 3-4 lessons using this PPT for writing the essay.
For KS4, see my upgraded version (coming soon).
