Important and critical Notes research modules: (Read and follow carefully)

 

  1. Always keep in mind the need for evidence of multiple perspectives and critique being provided.
  2. Use the upper end of the word count.
  3. Add within paragraph citation support for the claims documented. This will also help expand the reference list and show wider reading.
  4. Avoid paragraph that have no support for claims documented.
  5. Add counter argument to the main themes ( support with frequent and varied academic citation support)
  6. Your work on the paragraph must be interesting and informative but very importantly rigorous. This is done by adding a to academic citation support for claims documented.
  7. Think deeper and deeper, add information, establish further literature, theory, suggestion etc..
  8. Have multiple perspectives within each paragraph in evidence. When this style of writing is also supported by critique that outlines the limitations of various issues being addressed, this further strengths that post.
  9. Reduce the content relating to examples. Avoid using a lot of words on example information but the words need to be about research methods. A single very, very brief example to highlight a number of theoretical points would be more than enough. It is very important to show your interpretation of theory you have read (again, supported with varied and lots of academic citations).
  10. Ensure PLAGIARISM free as it is detected for all assignments.
