This blog post is a first – a request from my students about a resource I used today. I have used Dale Banham’s how to write great History mat a few times with my exam classes. They have found it a great help in formulating sentences and structuring their answers. Today. my Year 12s requested that I put it on my blog so they can access it easily. So a massive thanks to Dale Banham for creating this resource – it has been invaluable to my students and has made a huge impact on the quality of their writing and given them confidence to write effectively.
