The framework was not an original idea but the worked example is. This is a teacher written essay, written in the simplest, most straightforward style. It is not elegant or advanced, but good to illustrate a structure for those who have to learn how to write good essays. An examine essay requires two or more different perspectives given equal weight. It does not require one perspective which is evaluated.
this is the title and introduction:
Examine ways in which childhood can be said to be socially constructed
Childhood, seen as a separate existence from adulthood has not always existed. Similarly ideas about childhood: its length, characteristics and how children are regarded vary from place to place. When a characteristic such as childhood varies between cultures and at different times it is said to be socially constructed. This essay will examine the ways in whether concepts of childhood are entirely socially constructed
