Choose five of the six topics presented below. Prepare a short, integrative essay (500 words or 2 typed, double-spaced pages) for each of the five questions you have selected to answer.
Each essay must include direct references to the material presented in the assigned readings for this course, and may also include references from the course Supplementary Materials Lists and/or other readings you have done to support your analyses. Please label each of your five essays with its appropriate question number (i.e., Question 1, Question 2, etc.) so that your tutor is clear about which of the six questions each of your essays is referencing.
When you have completed this final assessment exercise, keep a copy of it for your records before submitting it to your tutor for marking. If you are mailing your responses, attach a “Tutor-marked Exercise” form (available on myAU) to it. As with all assignments in this course, the preferred method for you to submit this final exercise is through the Assignment Dropbox (Final Assessment Exercise) on the course home page. _______________________________
