METHOD:

Question Analysis
1. Choose an essay title from the list below. Consider what you know about the topic and how you feel about the question.

a. Make a full analysis of the title. What are you being asked to write about? What type of essay is needed to complete the task successfully?

b. Do some general background research on the topic. This will help you decide if you find this interesting, if you can understand the type of sources you will need to read on the topic, and also if you can find enough material available to write an essay of this length. You may want to choose another title if this first research stage highlights possible difficulties for you. Following this procedure will help you understand what you need to do and will ensure you complete the task effectively.

Research Procedure
2. Then if you are certain you have decided on the essay title make a list of things you need to find out in order to answer the question fullyyour general research will help you do this.

3. Conduct in depth research. This is research which should give you the information to write a critical and analytical answer to the question, not simply give a general overview of the topic.

4. Make sure you keep all the reference information of anything you use as you will need to include it in your final reference list (bibliography).

5. Use both paper-based sources and web-based resources.

Writing an Outline
6. Using your research, formulate a rough outline of how you will answer the question and how you will sequence the ideas so that you form a cohesive, coherent and effective argument.

7. Once you are happy with this, write everything out using the outline template given to you.Your outline must be clearly organised into sections according to the demands of the essay title. Each section must have a clear topic sentence, with notes indicating the kind of information you expect to put into each section. Check that it has covered all the aspects of the title.

8. You mustinclude citation and a complete reference list (bibliography) using the Harvard Reference system. It must be your own work. Plagiarism will be penalised.

Outline to Essay
9. Now, using your outline, write your introduction. Refer to your class notes for information on writing effective introductions. Your Introduction should be between 150 and 200 words.

10. As we go through the term, you will have classes on many different aspects of academic work, which you must apply to your essay. In order to achieve success, you must show that you have absorbed and are at least starting to apply the patterns, concepts and approaches of UK academic work which we have covered throughout the ESUS modules. Your essay must follow the rules of extended cohesive and coherent academic writing, including an effective introduction, clear signposting and a complete concluding section. Your essay must show powers of analysis and not be purely descriptive.

11. Write the assignment, making sure that all source material has been used safely and is appropriately referenced.

12. Remember to check your work for mistakes.

13. Your work should be word-processed and double-spaced. Please use a?Ariala? or a?Times New Romana? font size 12. Use the word count facility on your PC, not including your title page or reference list.

The following advice will help you to produce a strong piece of work:

STRUCTURE:
Your work should be appropriately structured, with a clear introduction, well-organised main body and clear closing paragraph. When you have decided on the ideas you will use in your essay, consider very carefully the most logical order you will present them in. Clear a?signpostinga should be used to make it easy for your reader to understand where you are and where you are going.
Do not use sub-titles: clear transitional language should lead your reader from one section to the next. The structure of the main body should follow the organisational statement (route map) you offer in your introduction.
TASK ACHIEVEMENT:
Your work must be complete and address all aspects of the title fully. You should show that you understand how to analyse the question in order to plan and develop a relevant and appropriate answer.

ACADEMIC CONTENT:
Remember that you are required to develop each point in an analytical/critical manner: engage your critical analysis and do not simply state facts. Also, the points YOU want to make must be supported with evidence from source materials wherever possible: this is academically researched work, not simple personal observation.

LANGUAGE:
The titles demand a range of language and structures associated with academic argument, perhaps associated with making useful comparisons, analysing causes and consequences, explaining change and development or expressing opinions and offering solutions.
You will need to check your work very carefully for academic style and sentence grammar, as well as word-form errors and use of appropriate sentence connectors. It must be easy to read your work without too many places where your meaning is unclear.
SOURCE MATERIAL:
Remember: sources should only be used to support the points that you make, and should not just be lifted and pasted into your work without clear connection with your points, or without appropriate acknowledgement.

PRESENTATION:
Your work must be word-processed in a?Ariala? or a?Times new Romana? size 12 font and double spaced.
Your work must have a title page which contains the title in full, word count (not including the title page or list of references), date of submission, your student number, course, and tutoras name.

please do not include graphs and diagrams and include more data evidence. all citation included for every source.
