Essay writing guide
To write a good essay you need to organize your thoughts and ideas. Preparing an outline,
diagram or mind map enables you to see connections and links between concepts. Start by
analyzing the question, and identify relevant keywords. Think of all the synonyms that may be
related to those keywords, and consider narrower or broader terms. Create a mind map to
visually organise your keywords, terms and subjects. Also, look at the assessment rubric if one
is available. Note the emphasis on the weighting of the marking.
