Teacher essay summary

3 star(s)

Overall a good essay that covers the main ideas of communication. The second half of the essay is better than the first with more detailed descriptions. As the title refers only to description, and not explanation, the depth of writing is adequate to satisfy this.

It would benefit from a greater range of examples of health and care settings.

To extend the writing, the essay could discuss the communication cycle or SOLER behaviours.
