/ write an essay ... !?
- find a topic of your interest
- think of a suitable working title
- collect appropriate material
- propose the structure of your report/paper
- and then write it out, revising the structure when appropriate
- don't hesitate to ask advice of your tutor or your collegues
- as a recommendation, add a brief annotated bibliography
and, finally, follow yourr own intuition and judgement, that is
do not write something to please either your supervisor or others,
but only when it satisfies your own intellectual curiosity / interests / standards!
