In-Class GP Essay-Writing next week.....

To hone your skills in producing a script during simulated exam condition, and to reflect more accurately your actual ability in tackling Paper 1, I will be conducting an in-class essay-writing exercise next week. To help you in advance, I'll be disclosing the question here:

"All forms of discrimination are undesirable." Discuss.

To enhance your performance next week, you are strongly advised to:
1) read through the lecture notes on "Discrimination" and do your own additional research
2)brainstorm your own points and examples
3)study the question carefully; any key words or phrases you need to take note of?
4)Hint: Don't just focus on the types of discrimination in your essay; be able to tell me exactly WHY each discrimination is desirable or undesirable. In short, avoid organizing your essay according to the types of discrimination; rather, organise according to points, i.e. the reasons WHY certain discriminations are desirable or undesirable.
5)revise your essay structure and the skills we have learnt thus far (e.g. elaboration, rebuttal, etc)

Note that you will NOT be able to refer to any notes or engage in discussion with your friends during the writing, which will be done in pen and paper.
You will start immediately when the bell signals the start of the double period, so be punctual!

If you feel utterly lost and need some guidance to start you off, feel free to drop me an email. It'll be preferable if you can ask specific questions with regard to the essay.

Best of luck and enjoy the long weekend!
