    Hi I'm struggling on perception and aggression, how do you structure your essays?
    The structure depends on whether the question is parted or not. If you have a parted question where part a is outline and part b is evaluate then the structure I'd follow would be this
    Part a) outline a direct theory about perceptual organisation
    1.introduction:
    perception refers to..
    gibson's theory of perceptual organisation states (briefly state what the theory says about perception)
    2. Explain how Gibson says perception works. So talk about sensory input etc
    3. Go in to detail. Gibson suggested movement is an important part of perception (explain)
    4Gibson states that the optic array is... ( talk about optic array)
    5. Gibson also introduced the concept of affordances in perceptual organisation... (Explain)
    6. Conclusion: summarise all main points
    Then for part b you evaluate so talk about things that support the theory and things that don't support it.
    Does this help?
