(Professional writing tips:
*Structure: Remember to follow structure: Explain the scenario before you give your arguments, and write one topic Per paragraph. See: Professional Writing Skills: Structure In any essay you write, always EXPLAIN the argument or topic first, using supporting quotes. Assume your reader does not know the case of Kitty Genovese. Then, in a separate paragraph critique, apply, or assess.
*Structure: The first sentence of paragraphs should include signposting.
*Content: Aim at writing SUFFICIENTLY. Give details and specific examples. Avoid general statements.
