What to write in the exam?
The task is to analyse a given article using Gibb’s reflective cycle. You have to reflect on a past professional experience to show your understanding of the article. While reflecting on your experience, you will also be required to define, explain and analyse two given concepts from the syllabus (the two concepts are LFS Framework and Dark Side of Leadership). This way, you will be linking the given article with your experience and with the entire syllabus.
Assignment 1 = Reflective analysis of a given article
You must define, explain, analyse these two concepts within your reflective cycle. You can discuss these concepts in all stages, however, they should DEFINITELY be discussed in detail in evaluation, analysis and action plan.
You will be evaluated based on your understanding of the syllabus, your understanding of the given article, your reflection, and your critical thinking.
How will you see the article and two concepts?
How are the two terms incorporated in the Assessment Rubric?
Assessment Rubric is for 100 marks, of which 20 marks are for Depth of Discussion, 20 marks are for Breadth of Discussion, and 20 marks are for Integration. These three points make up 60 marks altogether.
To score high marks in Depth, give more reasons, use the word ‘because’ more often, while discussing the two terms (in all stages, particularly, in evaluation & analysis & action plan). To score high marks in Breadth, link your reflective experience with important concepts from the book, especially the two terms (in all stages, particularly, in evaluation & analysis & action plan).
To score high marks in integration, link the two terms with your professional experience, article (PDF) and other concepts from the textbook. The linkages should be strong and clear.
