||The project will be carried out in pairs. Only in exceptional cases and with the teachers' consent may the project be done individually.
The project will consist of a critical analysis and assessment of the positive and/or negative contribution of an event or person (no longer living) to English-speaking culture and society. The project should NOT be a mini-biography, list of accomplishments, history brochure, etc. (i.e. Wikipedia-type information).
The project task will consist of: (i) an oral presentation to be done in class (dates to be published on Moodle); (ii) a 500-word abstract, including five keywords and a bibliography of all sources used (print and electronic); (iii) a print-out of the Powerpoint used for the presentation. Specific details and instructions will be provided in class and on Moodle.
Students should be aware that the faculty uses a computer programme (Turnitin) to detect plagiarism (i.e. copying the work of others, whole or in part, including copying and pasting), and the use of work handed in previously by the same student or by another student for a different subject or purpose. Any evidence of plagiarism will result in a zero mark for the project assignment.
