13. Essay Writing Guide : Students : The School of Historical and Philosophical Studies : The Faculty of Arts : The University of Melbourne

Essay writing guide for students in The School of Historical and Philosophical Studies, The Faculty of Arts, The University of Melbourne
Sara Hammer's insight:

Catagory 3: This refers to an essay as claim or hypothesis testing but idea of debate is tacit.

 

This has some great research related ideas about essay research and writing but they are not well labelled. The section "documentation and organisation" actually deals with the idea that students must go beyond the generalisation and look for evidence.
