The Investigation

Remember this is not a thesis essay. Approach the topic as though you are going to present to an audience that wishes to be informed, not have a particular argument proved. You will be required to explore, evaluate, reflect and question.

Unlike the thesis essay, where you are the lawyer defending a case...

In the investigation, you are the detective asking the questions...

the assignment
The Assignment

You are provided with very specific criteria for each section of the assignment. The assignment requires you to work independently and thoughtfully. Exploring your topic may prove more difficult than proving a point.

Read the assignment sheet carefully.
