It's a good idea to try your essay on family members by reading it out

 

Mine is written as a task, rather than an essay title/statement. So it says: 'Produce a short report that summarises and critiques a newspaper article'. (1500 words)

The article is supplied. It is on crime rates in Scotland.

Guidance says to critique the article using data in a govt report.

So there's 3 things to use: the article, the govt report, and module material on how media reports crime and can misrepresent data. 

Format = report (but no abstract needed)

Process words = 'summarise' and 'critique'

Thanks for adding this Deborah! Hope you can also attend this weeks session.

Is this recorded because I couldn't attend?

It was recorded but I can’t see myself the link. In FAQs says it is available the day after on the YouTUbe Channel but don’t see the actual recording. There are other videos about essays though. They seem good. 

I hope it helps. :) 

Hi!

Thanks for putting the link. But I tried to enter it and then a message comes saying: Authorisation Denied. Anyone else with the same problem?

Hi Veda, 

I just wanted to say thank you for putting the link up. I had found it previously and you have to down load Adobe Connect if you haven't already got it, but it is very helpful to know there are people on here who do put up links for those (like me) who might have trouble finding them. 

Thank you again

Angela

I'm so glad I was able to attend. You did a great job Isabella and Karen. The most important thing I think I took in, is .... Read the question and understand the question. Do this before answering the question. Derek
