How to use a model essay

Advancing Writers & Improving Writers can use model essays differently

Advancing Writers :

– can get more exposure to the style & language use in the model essay.
This can help them work on flair & find their own convincing voice in writing

– (Also refer to tips for Improving Writers below)

Improving Writers :
– should not try to memorise complex phrases or sentence structures that some model essays present. Memorising adds stress and your grammar could get mangled as you try to reproduce what you memorise

– should pick out points & counter-points; ideas & illustrations that you can re-express clearly and grammatically

– should learn from how the writers of model essays move from point to point, or from point to counter-point and back (i.e. their transitions) such that they avoid contradictions and avoid just simply sitting on the fence
