The Definition of "To Discuss":
- 1. Write a coherent paragraph.
- 2. Write full sentences (no arrows, no abbreviations, no drawings instead of words – if you use a diagram, it needs comments in words).
- 3. Give definitions for the phenomena you are discussing.
- 4. Show how the data illustrate these definitions (or give examples to illustrate them)
- 5. Mention other aspects of the phenomenon that are perhaps not in the data you are given (give examples).
