Do you have to use quotations from sources in your essay?

For structure there are a few tips you could use: If you follow the P-E-E format you should find it quite easy. 

Introduction-Mix the question into your introduction as you introduce the topic your disscusing or arguing.

P= Make a point or give your point on the topic

E-Bring some evidence that proves your point

E-Explain how the evidence proves your point and then expand on it from there.

L=Link, so if you're doing a looooooooong essay then you of course are going to be making lots of points, so you link each one so they flow together.

Conclusion: Briefly sum up the answer to the question in a few sentences.

Then you proof read and edit and make sure you've spoken about the points/issues that relate to the question and help answer it. Before actually writing out your essay its a good idea to make a mini mind map/spider diagram so you know what you are going to mention.

Its just general info I've mentioned but hope it helps anyway :)
