Referencing

Next Video: Guided Practice- Advantages & Disadvantages Essay

What is referencing? It's simply replacing repeated nouns with pronouns or determiners! But, like hedging, it is another skill that students often forget. However, overlook it at your peril, because failing to reference will seriously damage your score for Coherence and Cohesion. In fact, I would say that a lack of referencing is probably the number one reason why students fail to climb higher than a 6 in this area. Plus, we will also talk about using synonyms correctly in your essay (that's a little bonus from me to you!)
