Improving Year 12's extended writing

From Muddleton Manor to Clarity Cathedral: improving Year 12's extended writing through an enhanced sense of the reader

Mary Brown recognised that her A-level students were finding extended writing difficult, particularly in terms of guiding the reader through the argument with appropriate ‘signposting'.
