I want type of document is Reflective essay
You will be required to write an essay which reflects on how nineteenth century Australian history is relevant to contemporary Australia using three examples from this unit.
Word Length: 800 words
This Assessment Task relates to the following Learning Outcomes:
Identify the historical forces of the nineteenth century which shape Australia today.
Interpret different kinds of historical evidence, including visual, textual and material.
Communicate effectively in oral and written forms.
This is meant to be a ‘think piece’ so a reference list is not necessary. I’m not looking for a perfectly constructed essay for this task. This is not to say I don’t expect it to be well-written but to signal that it is a different sort of task than a research essay where the primacy is on your research base. Here I am looking to reward ‘thoughtfulness’, ‘perception’, ‘insight’ and critical and creative reflection. You can include references if you want as footnotes (say you use something from the reader, you can just put MHIS201 Reader and page number).
I choose These three examples
a. Dispossession (AH)
b. Settling the Land (AH)
NSW Supreme Court – Colonial Case Law
