Throughout this subject (and your Core First year subjects more generally), you must use the APA 7th referencing system. The library reference tool may assist you, and can be located here: http://www.lib.latrobe.edu.au/referencing-tool/. Given the nature of this assessment it is not anticipated that you will use no more than 2-3 additional references beyond your chosen article.
You are being marked on your ability to summarise information from your chosen article.
You do not need to repeatedly reference your chosen article as your marker will be aware that the information has come from this source. Take careful note of the information below related to academic integrity, however, as this also applies to plagiarism.
This assessment should be a piece of individual and original work. Naturally, you will discuss this task with other students and your Workshop Facilitator whilst you are in the process of developing an understanding of how you will undertake the activity, but each student is expected to submit an individual essay.
