Digging Deeper

Students of this course are to present an in-depth project dealing with a topic connected to English for the Social Sciences. All in-depth projects have certain stages of work.

  • First comes choosing a topic you find interesting.
  • Then comes finding information about the topic – that is, doing research. Doing research is like hunting for buried treasure. You can never be quite certain of what you will find.
  • Finally the results of the work are presented. This may be done in a variety of ways. It could be a written report or an essay of some kind; it could be an oral presentation, or perhaps a website that the class can visit. Exactly how it is done will differ from project to project.

You will find possible topics for such in-depth work after each main part of your textbook - on pages 148, 231-232, 355-356 and 427-428. There are resources for all of them here on the website. 

These topics are not meant to be definitive. It may be that they simply start you off in a certain direction. It is your treasure hunt.
