DSE Geog Essay拎高分嘅要訣同框架
Geog essay嘅題目一向有分2 part- 第一part通常會以"describe", "explain", "account for"同"give an account of" 為提問語，而第二part通常就會以"evaluate", "discuss"同"assess" 為提問語。 🌟第一段- Introduction🌟 ⭕️呢段唔使寫得好長，簡簡單單，straight to the point就可以。我嘅做法就係會定義一下題目第一部分嘅關鍵geog term/ 做一個簡單嘅引入。 ✳️geogaholic 範例：[14DSE Essay- Describe the physical environment for the practice of nomadic herding in the Sahel.] The Sahel is in the northern part of Africa and southern margins of the Sahara Desert. It is located in 13°N - 18°N of the Equator. Its physical environment for the practice of nomadic herding is described as follows. 🌟Body paragraphs (1st part of the Q) x6🌟 ⭕️因為essay嘅總分為12，所以就咁除2，就會知道其實每part應該寫6個point (亦即6段)。當然，唔一定寫6個point先攞倒滿分嘅，但前提係你每個point都寫得好好 ⭕️每段嘅結構離唔開呢幾樣野- 標識語 (e.g. "first", "second", "last")，topic sentence (概括你嗰段嘅main point+扣題)，flow (一步一步咁推論到個結果) (適當時用geog term+例子)，concluding sentence (optional，有時間嘅話先寫) ✳️geogaholic 範例：[15DSE Essay- Account for the major factors affecting the spatial distribution of the iron and steel industry in China before 1978.] First, raw material was one of the dominant locational factors that affected such a spatial distribution of China’s iron and steel industry. During the period before the 1950s, the availability of raw materials contributed to the coastal development of iron and steel centres. There were localized raw materials in Anshan and iron ore was available along lower Changjiang region...... 🌟過渡段🌟 ⭕️呢段好重要！係提示marker你會開始講題目第二部分嘅points架！ ⭕️一個好嘅過渡段應該做倒承上啟下。當你諗倒第一部分同第二部分有d咩關係 (e.g. problem-solution)，就可以好快組織倒應該點寫啦。值得留意嘅係「啟下」嗰度應該做埋第二部分嘅geog terms定義 (如有)同畀立場 (如適用, e.g. "discuss" 嘅題目) ✳️geogaholic 範例：[13DSE Essay- Describe the physical environment for the practice of nomadic herding in the Sahel. Discuss whether arable farming is a better way to increase food supply in the region.] In order to increase food supply in the Sahel under the unfavourable physical environment for the practice of nomadic herding, arable farming has been put forward as a way to achieve such an aim. I believe that it is not a better way to increase food supply in the region despite its advantages. In theory, it has the following advantages. 🌟Body paragraphs (2nd part of the Q) x6🌟 ⭕️同第一部分嘅做法一樣～ ✳️geogaholic 範例：[16DSE Essay- Discuss how these tectonic activities bring opportunities and challenges to the region] Last, the Himalayan region has the world’s largest freshwater sources, which is favourable to the development of an alternate energy resource- hydroelectric power. With the steep terrain and fast- flowing mountain rivers and melting of glaciers feeding the large river systems in the Himalayas like Brahmaputra River and Indus River, it is favourable for the development of HEP. 🌟尾段- Conclusion🌟 ✳️geogaholic 萬用template (impacts/ problems + a measure's effectiveness): All in all/ In conclusion, there are a lot of problems associated with (the phenomenon/ the thing concerned). Although (the measure) may be effective in..., it also has a number of limitations. ✳️geogaholic 萬用template (relative importance of different factors in leading to sth): All in all/ In conclusion, (Factor A) has a high importance in... due to (reason) while (Factor B) only plays a minor role.
