Important Notice: A minimum of 12 different references is required for this essay. Be careful using the Internet – it offers information, sometimes wildly inaccurate, while also not necessarily providing a strong critical analysis.
The use of encyclopaedia-style Web sources (e.g. http://www.wikipedia.org/ and www.thefreedictionary.com) is NOT acceptable at this level of study and any instance of using such references will attract a fail grade.
To receive a Distinction grade or above, you will need to draw upon academic journals, texts and high-quality references, and exceed the minimum standards.
Students must submit their academic essays in a Microsoft Word document electronically via Moodle. Essays submitted in any other format will not be marked and will receive a fail grade of zero. It is also required that essays include a list of references at the end of the essay (in alphabetical order by author surname) which is presented in a recognised Author/Date referencing system. This must be part of the essay document, not a separate file (see http://www.canberra.edu.au/library/research-gateway/research_help/referencing-guides).
You MUST write in the third person for all assessment items in this unit. For example, rather than writing ?In this essay, I discuss??, write: ?This essay will discuss??. Writing in the third person is a formal writing skill which you must practise while undertaking this unit. If you do not write in the third person your essay will attract a fail grade.FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THIS TOPIC GO TO
