Modelled introduction to AoS essay.

Belonging is essential to an individual's well-being and it allows people to develop a sense of self. These ideas can be examined in Skrzynecki's poetry, 'Ancestors', 'St Patrick's College' and 'Feliks Skrzynecki'. In addition, The Shawshank Redemption, a film by Frank Darabont and Looking For Alibrandi, Melina Marchetta's novel explore these ideas further. In particular, this essay will discuss, through the text's forms and features, the importance of belonging to place, culture and social group in asserting an individual's identity and fulfilment.
