1. Starting position: (This is one of the replacement tasks instead of Group Contribution.) Before you do any work on this project, write a 150-word reflection about the assumptions you currently have on the issue. If you can’t identify any assumptions, write about what you currently think and why. 2. Collection of 4 primary texts, which make a range of assumptions about the issue. For written and visual texts, include the texts themselves in your portfolio, with correct APA referencing. For published multimedia texts such as films or webpages, reference them correctly and include a full URL where your reader can access the texts. One of these texts should be by an Indigenous Australian. 3. Critical reflection of 150 words under each text, explaining why you chose the text and how it supported or challenged your own assumptions on the issue. At least one of these texts should be from an Indigenous Australian perspective. 4. Final position: (If you had been working in a group, you would have reflected on the texts found by your group members as well as your own, in order to deepen your critical reflective thinking. To compensate for losing this opportunity, you will write a longer reflection and may choose to reflect on additional texts beyond the four included in your portfolio above. This is one of the replacement tasks instead of Group Contribution.) Write a critical reflection of 300 to 400 words in which you question the assumptions underlying your four texts and if/how your position has changed. (Include additional texts if you would like to add extra perspectives, though this is not compulsory. If you choose to include any, add full references under the reflection.) What perspectives do these texts offer you? How have your ideas developed and changed during the past five weeks? 5. Critical reflection of 500 words on the unit overall, examining how your thinking has changed over the semester. What have you learned? What are you satisfied with and what would you like to have done better? In what ways have you changed your attitudes to yourself as student, to your discipline, and to issues that you have been studying? Then reflect forward on where you would like to take your communications processes in your future studies and professional life: what processes will you build on in your future studies and what will you do differently?
