        Push yourselves to move from ‘essay’ to ‘blog’ style.  You have an opportunity here to speak in your voice and draw from your own experiences and examples around you.  Thinks of a journalistic, almost conversational style when writing – backed up by readings and quantitative data, of course
–          Make sure to interpret quantitative data correctly and connect data to the point you are making.  Think ‘What is the message I need the reader to take away from this table, graph etc?’
–          While it is fine to mention quantitative data in text form, as part of a paragraph/sentence, try also to use graphs, tables, charts.  This is a more effective way of presenting the data and shows clearly how you are meeting the requirements of the assessment
–          Pay attention to the links with module material.  You have all shown good understanding of key concepts in the module. Try to make these links clear and direct, by naming concepts that we have covered, and defining them using readings from the reading list
–          Consider focusing your blog on a particular line of argument rather than covering all angles. It is often better to develop one clear argument convincingly than to include too many ideas that you don’t have space to fully explore.
