If you want to select your own text, please note that your seminar leader or Sanna as module organiser must agree that you can use this text. So please contact him/her before you start writing your assignment. If you want to select your own text, please keep in mind that this text must be scholarly and relevant to this module. We recommend that it is no longer than a book chapter or a journal article.
When you write your assignment, remind yourself of the feedback you received on both formative assignments and try to apply what you have learnt.
