Instructions Each week you were required to write a paragraph to address a few questions about the topic(s) covered in the respective week’s materials. In this assignment you are asked to revise your weekly writings to meet the requirements outlined in the rest of this guide and present your portfolio (collection) of writings in a professionally formatted MS Word document. You may need to refine, modify, or combine your weekly writings to address the requirement of the below questions. Take care to synthesise and/or rewrite external sources in your own words (i.e. paraphrase), and reference them appropriately, to avoid plagiarism. If in doubt about academic referencing, seek help from the Academic Skills unit (accessible from your Student Portal) and/or your Communications Lecturer.
