Language and Concepts
All students attending will prepare one 20-30 minute presentation on a research paper which will involve some in-depth reading on a particular topic. They will complete a 3,000 word essay on the same topic as their presentation. The choice of topic will be discussed with the module leader. Each student will work on a different topic. The module leader will give feedback on each student's presentation in order to provide guidance about the essay's organisation and contents, but will not provide feedback on drafts of the essay itself. The presentation is mandatory but will not be marked. The module will be assessed by the essay, marked by the module leader using a percentage score. The deadline for submitting the essay will be April 25 2012.
