R‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ead, read, read! Make sure you read key ideas from essential and recommended class readings. Try to also go beyond the class reading list to demonstrate wider reading and independent research. But don’t just drop in citations for the sake of it – make sure you demonstrate that you understand what you’re citing and it backs up your argument. Make sure your essay has a clear structure. Make an essay plan beforehand so you can make connections between the different points that you wish to make. Introductions and conclusions are important. Intro – to set out what your essay will do; and conclusion – to draw out its main points. Evaluate and critically discuss. Try to go beyond description and think about having a coherent argument running through your essay. Go beyond generalities – make sure you back your points up with examples (including quotations)– from your reading (and you could also include contemporary issues relating to globalisation that might be relevant to your argument). Try to avoid jumps between paragraphs – try to include transitional sentences so that your essay has a clear and logical flow. Don’t directly cite the lecture slides (which might be great smile but they are not published sources!). Proof read your essay thoroughly before submitting it: Try to not to lose marks for simple spelling and grammatical mistakes. Be consistent with your referencing and be sure to include a complete bibliography (which is not included in the word count). Don’t name the title of the article/book in the text itself. Just the date/author is fine in the text and the full title/details can go in the bibliography. Some Sources to use: Murray, Warwick (2006/2015). Geographies of globalization. Routledge.
