Unit 4 requires candidates to integrate evidence of research and background reading as well as the more expected critical opinion. You need to start making relevant notes from essays, articles, blog discussion, radio interviews, autobiographical or biographical information for the texts/ideas you intend to write about. The aim is to use pertinent (but brief) references to your research in your essay to illuminate your argument.
