    Hey,

    So i have this question,

    I really do not understand this, could any shed some light with what my teacher wants?
    For this type of question what I would do would be first to introduce why we need to increase participation such as the more chances people have to be involved in political processes the more likely they are to vote in big elections? Feel that the true meaning of democracy, 'demos' - people and 'kratas' - power is being put into action in the truest sense of the word.
    Then I would go on to talk about the different methods in turn used to increase political participation talking about how it can be seen to increase political participation and in what ways it won't be that effective.
    Then I would come to a conclusion about which of those methods you perceive to be the most effective, possibly ranking them from least effective to most effective based on analysis you've given in the main body of your essay.
    Hope that helps, sorry if that wasn't very clear.
