Let’s face it, we all want our students to write powerful paragraphs in their Hospitality HSC Examination. This resource has been developed to assist students to develop their confidence in how to write a powerful paragraph instead of just waffling in essays. This resource is a step-by-step approach utilising the DPEEL writing techniques and NESA Examination criteria. These resources have been scaffolded with explicit answers to paint a clear picture for all students attempting this challenging part of the examination.

As a current hospitality teacher, it can be a struggle to get those ‘ah ha’ moments with students when responding to extended response questions. Therefore, these resources were created to combat this and I am sharing these bright and well-scaffolded resources with you. I hope you get some ‘ah ha’ moments with your students too. I use this DPEEL writing technique with my students and find this is the best way to improve upon their grades quickly. In this pack, it details the entire process and provides you with explicit scaffolded questions that are not from past HSC Hospitality Examinations, but hopefully, if my predictions are correct will be in future ones eg COVID-19 impact (Shhh). These two sample essays have been highlighted/colour coded reflecting the DPEEL technique, industry examples, and hospitality terminology while considering the impact on the four hats (worker, customer, workplace, and PCBU). Remember this is essential if you are striving to achieve a Band 6 result in the HSC. This pack includes a self-reflection checklist and peer marking template to encourage students to write their best essays. This resource pack includes the following:

  • Teacher instructions
  • Resource #1 Poster – writing powerful paragraphs using the DPEEL technique
  • Resource #2 Performance band descriptors
