How can I use evidence from the course to discuss this topic?) b) Critical thinking and reading skills (Ask yourself: Am I thinking creatively about the issue? Am I regurgitating, or putting the ideas together in an interesting way?) c) The application of key course concepts, readings, and lecture notes to the analysis (Ask yourself: Have I conveyed the knowledge I gained in the course? Do I reference appropriate concepts, authors, readings, and lecture ideas to answer the question?) d) Coherence and organization of argument / clarity of expression (Ask yourself: Does my response make logical sense? Have I organized my thoughts in a coherent way, using smooth transitions and concise expressions? Have I proofread sufficiently? Is the tone of my writing compelling and appropriate for academic writing?)     “we experience consumer society as something natural. But it’s not” – Juliet Schor
