WRATD, Cash for Comment and BAGAG?

Subject: Case studies?
Topic: FAQs Major Assignment

Date: 27 May 2011 9:11 PM

Q: Should I use all three case studies – WRATD, Cash for Comment and BAGAG?
A: One case study to illustrate your argument is fine – remember you only have 2000 words. You can also use the case studies creatively – meaning that you can apply citizenship theory to the BAGAG case study – or risk theory to WRATD case study etc. Remember its the way you mine the case studies for meaning that is important! Always go for quality – not quantity!

Q: So just for clarification, the theories that we are to choose from and discuss in the essay are basically the topics in the study guide?
A: Yes, but start by developing your contention/argument – this is vital.
Once you have done this then look to select the theory that will evidence your contention.
The theory options are: ‘ethics’ in Topic 1 – and then theories presented in Topics 3 – 7 (Citizenship/communication/risk/stakeholder and democratic/community engagement).
Cherry pick from the theory – by which I mean select the bits that most powerfully support your contention. Some contextualisation of the theory will be necessary – but make sure you don’t become overly descriptive and lose your thread.
Following this evidence your contention with ‘empirical’ knowledge– so look to the three case studies (Topics 3/4/5/) to do this.
Remember, every student’s essay will be slightly different depending on their views or approach.
There is no formula as such except a) form a position (contention) in relation to the question b) evidence your contention drawing on two theories and c) a case study.
You then need to express this within the conventions of an essay – so make sure you are familiar with the essay format (see link on DSO).
Hope that helps Kristin
