1. Be sure you answer the question that you are actually assigned to
answer, not a closely related question, such as "write all you know

+2. Try imagining you're explaining the philosophical material to a fellow
+ undergraduate student who has taken a philosophy class, but not this
+ particular philosophy class. Thus, you should explain thoroughly all the
+ concepts that you could not expect such a student to already know -- all of
+ the new concepts introduced by the authors we've been reading in this
+ particular class.
