are you struggling with how to plan or what to actually include? because im in year 13 doing rs so i can help with both
to plan a good structure i use is 'DISC PEREL RJ' which is basically:
introduction:
D:define all key terms
I: implications of the question
S: key scholars
C: conclusion (what you agree with and believe)
paragraphs:
P: point
E: explain
R: refer to scholars on the other side of the argument
E: explain
L: link to question
conclusion:
R: refer to everything mentioned
J:judgement

scholars you could use for the question are: descartes, plato, richard dawkins, aristotle, gilbert ryle and a few others but those are the key people to use
if you need any more help just let me know :smile:
Could you go more in depth with your structure please? What do you mean by "implications of the question". How many paragraphs do you do? Could you use this question to precisely outline what you would include.

I'm really struggling with the structure. Thx.
