SHOW KNOWLEDGE OF LECTURES, RECOMMENDED READINGS AND READING PACKAGE.
Showing knowledge of the lectures and course readings is essential to pass. This knowledge should be more than descriptive (i.e just citing the lectures or parts of a reading) You need to go further and use your knowledge of the literature to build informed arguments and analyse the issues raised by the question. Readings will provide you theories, concepts, arguments, findings and lessons from history. You need to analyse them and use them to organise your discussion. On the other hand showing knowledge of lectures and readings does not mean that you cannot have a sceptical attitude towards them. Do not be afraid to disagree or challenge the readings perspective, but be prepared to support your ideas with informed arguments.
EVIDENCE, EXAMPLES, FIGURES,
‘To be convincing any academic argument must be an informed argument. This does not mean that you have to cram every fact and figure that you have acquired from your reading into the body of your essay. It does mean, however that you need to support you major claims and arguments by showing the reader the evidence upon which they are based. Much of this evidence may be open to several interpretations, so you should try to demonstrate why the particular argument you are making is preferable to other interpretations. Usually one or two good examples will suffice to demonstrate a generally accepted point of view, but a more contentious argument will require more detailed information’. (Essay writing and referencing guide, School of Management, 2009-2010, pp 4)
Do not rely in one source. Compare and contrast perspectives. ‘The more you depend in one source the more likely you are to simply replicate the ideas those authors offer. The more you advance in the degree the more widely and deeply you will have to read in order to address the issues raised in assignments’. (Essay writing and referencing guide, School of Management, 2009-2010, pp6)
