4.1 Using structuring devices in your writing

In addition to structuring your writing (in the style of an essay or a report, for example), you also must convey the overall logic and progression of your argument – this demonstrates your critical thinking. As you gain experience, you will develop your own particular writing style. Here are some suggested ways that can help to structure your written assignments, and help the reader to follow your arguments and overall flow of logic, as they progress within your writing:

  • use context and examples
  • use themes
  • link and signpost.
