Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
The two texts you need to review are: Rasche, A., Morsing, M., & Moon, J. (2017). Corporate social responsibility: Strategy, communication, governance (Links to an external site.). New York; Cambridge, United Kingdom; Cambridge University Press. Chapter 1. Rhodes, C. (2021). Why progressive gestures from big business aren’t just useless – they’re dangerous (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/oct/28/progressive-gestures-big-business-useless-dangerous.). The Guardian, Oct 28. 2021. As a guide, with this piece of assessment, you need to show the reader that you: can identify the central argument(s) put forward in each article; can assess the strengths and weaknesses of the key argument/s in the articles and provide evidence in support; understand key concepts and/or theories related to the articles; can position the articles in relation to relevant, extant scholarly literature and debates (this is where your other course readings come in handy!); can demonstrate effective academic research and writing, and referencing conventions. Suggested structure for Assessment 1 Introduction: Here you very briefly explain what your short essay is going to cover, including telling us the key perspectives or arguments in the articles that you are going to support. Main section a): Summarise the main point(s) and argument(s) in article one (Rasche et al., 2017), including key theoretical and/or empirical contributions. Main section b): Summarise the key point(s) and argument(s) in article two (Rhodes, 2021), including key theoretical and/or empirical contributions. Main section c): Briefly describe how the arguments in these two articles are similar, and how they are different. Which main points/arguments do you find most convincing after studying these two articles? Explain your answer to this question. You will need to reference other articles, beyond these two, as evidence to explain why you find particular arguments convincing, or not. This is where your other course readings can help you!. You can also do your own research to back up your main points. Remember to reference at least 3 peer-reviewed academic articles beyond the two prescribed readings as per the assignment requirements. Conclusion: Here you summarise what you have covered in your short essay including the main arguments you support.
