The critical summary is the first assignment in the semester portfolio to address an issue relating to social inclusion. These serve as the basis for all future assignments (i.e., the oral presentation, business report and persuasive essay). Note: group members need to collaborate on the assigned social inclusion issue to carefully choose aspects that complement one another. The critical summary will commence the exploration of sources addressing this issue and will apprentice learners into research skills necessary in the university.
Summaries should be written using complete, full sentences and integrate academic vocabulary as necessary. Each summary should be concise (i.e. 500 words not including citation) and adequately summarise and critically evaluate the main points of the text.
To maintain the word count limits, students will have to distinguish the most significant and relevant details and organise language statically.
