Youth and Youth Movements in the Modern World

Assessment 1: Report

Your first assignment will be a 1,500 word report on the history of one youth movement/organisation.

The expectations of this piece of assessment are:

  • That you choose one youth organisation/movement to research and write about. This may be one that we have studied in seminars (e.g. Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, Woodcraft Folk, Youth CND, Asian Youth Movements) or one you choose yourself. The organisation can be from any international setting – the main criteria for selection is that you have access to appropriate academic literature and primary sources.
  • The report should provide an overview of the history of one organisation or movement and an assessment of its place in the history of youth or work with young people.
  • You will need to situate the organisation in the history and historiography of youth by drawing on academic literature. The course reading list and primary source materials provided provide a starting point but you will also need to undertake independent research to find additional information, including publications or websites produced by youth organisations. Any sources that you use should be fully referenced in your written work.
  • The assignment should take the form of a report and include appropriate headings, tables/charts, illustrations, quotations, timelines etc.

 

Word count: 1,500 words (counts for 50% of the overall grade for this module)

 

The following will not be included in the word-count: bibliography, appendices (such as a timeline), tables, illustrations and their captions.

 

Specific aspects of the marking criteria that will be drawn on when assessing the assignment:

You should be able to…

Knowledge & understanding:

  • deploy relevant factual evidence and descriptive material to support the argument, with scope to display originality and imagination in the interpretation of this evidence;
  • show good command of the historical, and historiographical issues under discussion;

Scholarly practices:

  • compile, edit and present information in the format of a report;
  • show accurate referencing skills and draw on a range of references (i.e. more than one source where possible and appropriate for each point made)

 

Intellectual skills

  • demonstrate a clear logical structure to your writing and argument, so that the reader can follow your argument throughout the text;
  • make careful and appropriate use of quotes, examples or data to support the claims that you are making;
  • make appropriate connections between the organisation discussed and its wider significance in the history and historiography of youth;

Research and enquiry

  • undertake independent research;
  • critically evaluate and reflect on the nature of the evidence under consideration.

CIPD assignment is not my cup of tea. That’s the reason I sought out this place suggested by my friend. I would say that the writers of this site are really admiring. I was assigned the best CIPD writer that solved all my issues. He explained to me the difficult topics so well that now I am able to talk on those topics eloquently. I owe my writer a huge thanks and praise! And yes, I would recommend other students as well to come to instaresearch.co.uk for the top CIPD assignment help.
