Discuss Schooling Identity and Society

Order Description

POSTER: (800 – 1000 words plus graphics, diagrams, visual design elements)

AO (841 x 1189mm)
A1 (594 x 841mm)

You will create a hard-copy poster that connects educational disadvantage with identity, schooling and society, drawing on two sociological factors presented throughout the course (SES, Indigeneity, religion, ethnicity/race, gender, sexuality, space and place). The primary consideration should be to effectively communicate the required levels of sociological understanding based on in-depth knowledge of course readings, lectures and other materials.

Posters will consist of visual (pictures, graphs, charts and diagrams as appropriate) and textual (written) information. Students will put the written component (800 1000 words plus references) of their poster through Turnitin. Posters will draw on the appropriate academic literature (including course readings) to demonstrate a clear and logical explanation of their two chosen sociological factors, and the intersection of these factors, as they connect to educational disadvantage. Poster will also draw on chosen factors to indicate connections between identity, schooling and society. Students will demonstrate their understanding by showing their poster and answering questions about their poster in their tutorials.

Students are assessed on their ability to communicate – visually and through written text:
the impact of their chosen sociological factors on educational disadvantage the dynamic resulting from the intersection of their chosen factors
to demonstrate a clear and coherent exposition of sociological knowledge and concepts relating to schooling, identity and society at an intermediate
their ability to design a poster with visual appeal and logical organization
and their ability to follow academic writing and referencing conventions.
