By Andrea Hall in WGU Students: ECE/Elem/Special Ed · Edit Doc -Don't try to find the information in the COS, you can waste hours and hours there. Find outside sources that help you make your specific points. -Do the tasks in whatever order is easiest for you.
-Break each essay into parts, the graders don't care too much about cohesion between part A and part B. -"Discuss imperialism" means "explain how and why" (I spent a page discussing in and got it sent back--the first time they said "not enough info" and so I added even more, then they sent it back again and finally told me they wanted "how and why"). -"Diffusion" doesn't mean spreading out, it means "influence on" so "discuss the diffusion between your society and another" doesn't mean compare how the two different societies expanded, it means explain how your society had influence on the other one. -The word "justify" means give factual evidence.
