Begin reading and collecting research materials early. This is a long-term project and should reflect extensive reflection on a selected topic.
Consult The TA or professor if you encounter difficulty or uncertainty in developing your ideas. We are here to help.
Make the essay focused and consistent. Keep your reader in mind and remember that you are trying to convince them of your argument. Be sure each of your points has a clear purpose and that it fits cogently with points that come before and after.
Avoid circular logic
Avoid making either whiggish or presentist assumptions about the connections among historical events
Your argument should take both intra-institutional and extra-institutional factors into account. That is, keep in mind that the context for your topic is constituted by both what was happening in the field of psychology and society in general at any given historical point. Making the connection between these interdependent contexts and your topic will sharpen the critical historical perspective of the essay and thereby strengthen your argument.
