GENERAL ADVICE ABOUT THE ANALYTICAL WRITING
When preparing your analytical writing for the portfolio, bear in mind the following
1. Don’t try to cover too much information.
You are much better off analysing one issue/topic/event in detail than trying to cram
in three or four issues into 750 words. We are looking for depth of analysis. Many of
the analyses I marked last year tried to cover two or even three issues so they
weren’t able to go into sufficient detail to get really good marks on the ‘Analysis’
2. Back up all of your claims with evidence.
This means you need to do lots of research. Avoid the passive voice (e.g. ‘It has
been argued…’) in favour of the active voice (e.g. ‘Smith (1999) and Bharat (2001)
argued…’). Be specific rather than general (i.e. don’t say ‘Many states responded…’,
say ‘A number of European states, such as Greece, Germany and Portugal,
responded…’) and provide references to your source material. There is a good
online tutorial about using evidence available through Monash University at
3. Don’t rely too heavily on internet sources.
I suggest a 60:40 split in favour of academic sources and this still stands. ‘A wide
range of literature’ (as it says on the rubric) is about half a dozen academic sources
per analysis. This means journal articles, books and book chapters. You can support
this with internet material, and/or use news media or internet sources as material to
analyse, but internet sources should not form the basis of the support for your
argument. Online journal articles and e-books are not internet sources.
4. ‘Reflective’ does not mean random personal musings
While I encourage you to place yourself and your own voice in your academic
writings (to use the first person, e.g. ‘I argue…’) to be reflective does not mean to
write about your opinions or beliefs. You still need to make an argument. Don’t start
sentences with ‘I think…’ or ‘I believe…’ and don’t over-do the personal context (i.e.
keep the amount of background information brief, avoiding long rambling
introductions e.g. ‘After my tute in Week 4 I got to thinking about nationalism on the
bus on the way home and I was wondering about how my national identity is
perceived by others, although obviously I’ll never be able to know about that unless I
ask everyone I come into contact with. But anyway it made me think about
nationalism and so that’s what I decided I would write about.’ I made that example
up, but you get the picture…). To be reflective means to challenge the conventions
of thought within the discipline and to be prepared to challenge even your own
assumptions and common sense ideas about how the world works.
Adapted from ‘Language and Learning Online’
need to think reflectively improves your ability to read critically and analyse course
readings, ideas presented in class and everyday experiences. As you write you
clarify your own understanding. The process of thinking and writing reflectively helps
you to lay philosophical foundations for your academic career.australia代写accounting assignment essay 论文 作业australia代写accounting assignment essay 论文 作业australia代写accounting assignment essay 论文 作业
