Death and Afterlife: Improve your Essay Technique

Please comment on each section of the essay with your feedback. What is good about it, needs work, could be improved and how, how does it meet the requirements of the mark scheme and your general thoughts?

‘Everyone deserves to be saved and go to Heaven’ Discuss.

Tom Sherrington Rosenshine’s Principles and Curriculum Design: What’s the connection?
