Assessment Task: Part 2
One of the intentions of this subject is to engage you with a particular line of thinking (or at least a
series of questions and challenges to the current political and economic order) throughout semester.
This thinking will be disseminated through a series of readings, approximately one per week, and the
tutorial conversations that are sparked by these readings. Each week, as you attend your tutorial, you
will be asked to bring one paragraph that summaries a key point from the weekly reading and/or you
view on it, of around 150-200 words.
This part of the assignment is to be a “chain letter” comprising your paragraphs – issued week by week
but collated here and edited to effect a flow between the various passages. It might also be expected
that your views evolve because of the tutorial discussion and so this may also be a cause of edit or
reconsideration of your material, which is reasonable.
This piece will therefore be total 1800-2200 words in length (8 x 150/200 words plus intro and
concluding paragraph). Refer to all resources attached to this file.
