You are required to produce a portfolio of three critiques (of not more than 750 words each) of the articles provided by your tutor (see below). Each critique should be of a different academic article and apply a different mode of critique i.e. each article will be predominantly critiqued using either a ideological, theoretical, or methodological critique. Although you will be expected to evidence your argument by referring to relevant reading, the emphasis in this assessment is on critically evaluating the specific articles using the techniques discussed in lectures and seminars rather than introducing different viewpoints.
In addition to the generic marking criteria in the SASS Undergraduate Handbook 2011/2012, the critiques in the portfolio will be assessed against the following criteria.
1. The ability to demonstrate a clear understanding of the article by using your own words.
2. The ability to apply each of the three types of criticism: ideological, theoretical, and methodological, appropriately.
3. The ability to produce a reasoned, coherent and consistent argument.
You must use the referencing convention that is detailed in the School of Applied Social Science (SASS) undergraduate programme handbook.
