Final write-up: Hints and tips
 Remember to establish the context of
your discussion (you have to write as
though the reader does not have the
target article in front of them)
 Focus on the most salient things (don’t
cover everything in the template)
 The write-up requires reading beyond
your focus article; be sure to signal this
extra reading in your paper
+
Final write-up: Hints and tips
 Tenor of paper is academic; includes
paying attention to in-text citation and
APA referencing conventions, and
bibliographic conventions etc.
 Include sub-headings to help structure
your paper effectively
 Leave time for your group to work on the
full draft--your paper should have one
“voice”
+
Some pitfalls to avoid
 Not reading enough beyond the focus article
 Re-description alone; must include analysis and
evaluation
 Not discussing things enough
 Treating your paper as a question-response type of text
 Being too literary (e.g., avoid including life narratives for
each focus article author).
 Treating limitations as grounds for the dismissal of a
study
+
Two samples….
+
The presentation itself
 6 groups @ 40 minutes each = about 4 hours plus
changeovers and breaks etc.
 Aim at 30 min of talk and leave10 min for discussion; be
sure to generate provocative questions for your audience
 Bring your PowerPoint presentation on a thumb/flash/jump
drive (along with back-up copies)
 Presentation should focus on your critique and evaluation
of the research design of the study, not on re-describing the
study
 Address the 3-4 most interesting things you found in your
critique—don’t take everyone through your entire paper
 Not everyone has to speak, but everyone must be involved
in designing the final presentation
+
Recap on final assignment
components to be submitted by
or at the final session
 A digital copy of your final paper;
including all group members’
names and email addresses; email
it to me:
micheleknobel@gmail.com
 A digital copy of your PPT
presentation
+
A “good” powerpoint…
 Has on average only 4 points per slide
 Summarizes key points being made
 Doesn’t include big chunks of text
 Isn’t read from the screen
 Makes use of good contrasting
colours
 Doesn’t have gratuitous
images, video clips or sounds
