Good Draft sample PEEL Plan

Hero: Yasmin ahmad

Summarize the main points of each PEEL component. Write in dot points; your ideas do not have to be in full sentences. Your lecturer will look for CLARITY in your points.

Why #2: Provide a compassionate lensed on the challenges and celebrations experienced by various races in Malaysia

Why #3: Encourages fellow Malaysians to focus on our shared values

Example

Film: Talentime

Scene: Mahesh found out that his late uncle was in love with a Malay woman. His uncle regretted his decision for leaving his girlfriend for family. Uncle advised Mahesh not to do the same thing.

Link

  • Inter-faith relationships especially between a Muslim and non-Muslim: taboo topic

Bad Draft Sample: PEEL Plan

Hero: Yasmin Ahmad

We don’t want you to write paragraph for a draft! Focus on main ideas for each PEEL component.

Body Paragraph #1

Point

The first heroic value that can be found in Yasmin Ahmad is that she is compassionate.

Explanation

Her work revolves around depicting the realities of Malaysian life. Through her films and commercials, she provided a compassionate lense on the challenges and celebrations experienced by various races in Malaysia. This is a good thing because it encourages fellow Malaysians to focus on our shared values.

Example

In her film, Talentime, where it features a group of Malaysian students who are preparing for a talent show. In Mahesh’s story arc, he found out that his late uncle fell in love with a Malay woman. His uncle regretted his decision for leaving his girlfriend for family and advised Mahesh not to do the same.

Link

This scene is significant because it covers inter-faith relationship struggles in Malaysia. Since this type of relationship is largely taboo in Malaysia, especially between a Muslim and non-Muslim, this scene depicts a human response to a difficult situation. It encourages viewers to be compassionate with fellow Malaysians who are in such situations.
