What is the title of your NEA / what area within geographical literature is it based upon?

So basically it’s like evidence / relevant literature (information) relating to your question that could help you prove and back up your arguments once you’ve done your data collection

I’m doing it on Ancoats.

So as I’ve started my intro, do I introduce the literature and talk a bit about it then use them later for my arguments?

Yeah pretty much, the introduction had things like the specification links and.. well introducing your project, then you do your literature review - we got told that the literature should be a strand, linking together all the sections - it could be reasonings for why you do what you did in your methodology, why you might have got the results you did in your data analysis etc.

Yep make sure you reference as you go along! (I use the website citethisforme as it’s easier than producing the references manually :giggle:)

I have just one more question! I don’t understand what it means by using geographical concepts and models.

Basically, 'geography stuff' relating to your project. Any research you do etc.
A geographical concept could something like longshore drift at the coast, or the formation of a glacier,
This website for example shows many models on urban growth: https://www.s-cool.co.uk/gcse/geogra...ban-morphology, just like diagrams to illustrate how something works and why

Haven’t done the final word count yet but I’d guess somewhere in the region of 7000 words?
As long as everything you say is relevant then the word count doesn’t matter (as long as it’s not too low!)
