1. If you're writing an essay on the concept of ethnicity and identity in South Asia, there are a few things to consider before you sit down to write:
1. Understand the assignment.
What are the essay requirements? How many words? Format? Due date? etc.
2. Familiarize yourself with the topic.
• What is ethnicity?
• What is identity?
• How do ethnicity, identity, and South Asia intertwine?
3. Do an online search using keywords: ethnicity, identity, South Asia, etc.
4. From your online research, take detailed notes from relevant sites and begin to develop a direction for your essay.
5. Based on your notes and the topic at hand, write a one-sentence thesis statement that you will support throughout your essay. see: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/588/01/
