  1. 1. + GCRD 6353: Research Seminar in Curriculum Studies Becoming Critically Informed Consumers of Peer Reviewed Published Research
  2. 2. + Where are you currently at?
  3. 3. + 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
  4. 4. + 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”
  5. 5. + 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
  6. 6. + Two samples….
  7. 7. + 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
  8. 8. + 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
  9. 9. + 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
  10. 10. + Course website https://sites.google.com/site/ourmsvu pages/summer1-2013 There are 3 exemplars of typical final papers posted here.
