Task Overview:
This assessment represents an important stage in writing an essay which is to draw up a clear
of how you will organise and reference your ideas in your final essay. This plan will then
guide your writing for your essay, keeping the overall structure clear and the paragraphs on
It provides an opportunity to get feedback on your essay plan and review and refine your ideas
before you start writing. You will also build and practice the important academic skills of
presenting information verbally and visually.
Task Details:
Create and present a PowerPoint presentation of your essay plan for your final essay.
The presentation will show the ideas you plan to write about in your final essay, as well as the
references you plan to include and your essay’s organisation.
10 slides must use the following structure:
Slide 1: Provide your name and a title (clearly indicating your chosen scenario and scope).
Slide 2: Provide a draft thesis statement (key argument responding to the assessment task)
for your essay in one or two sentences.
Slide 3: Provide background for your chosen scenario, including the stakeholders. Include
supporting evidence.
Slide 4: Provide a definition of sustainability (with citation) and one or two sentences
explaining how it reflects the concerns and responses in your chosen scenario.
Slide 5: Include a graphic (visual) representation of your essay plan for your chosen
scenario. This can be a taxonomy or a visual outline, providing it is clear and accurate (a
template is provided in
Learnline). Add citations to reflect evidence used across the
Slides 6, 7 & 8: Explain the key sustainability concerns and responses you plan to write

one slide per dimension. These concerns and responses should be the same as those
included in your essay plan/taxonomy on slide 5. Include supporting evidence for the
concerns and responses discussed.
Slide 9: In the formal bibliographic (referencing) style of the current APA guide, list the
most relevant publications that you have engaged with so far.
Slide 10: Conclude your presentation by reflecting on your progress towards the final essay.
This slide should indicate an action plan and any further research that you still need to do
to complete your final essay.
NB: This is not a final plan so we do not expect you to have covered everything you will discuss
in your essay, but we do expect that at this stage you will have decided on most of the key
ideas (topics and sub-topics) that your essay will cover and have engaged with the research
Suggestions to help you complete these tasks:
Read the task description carefully, so you include all required information;
Select a design template to ensure that your slides appear consistent in look and feel;
Select appropriate images that portray your slide’s message and purpose. For images that
you use, reference each with its own web address directly under the image; references for
images should not be added to slide 9 (which is a ‘bibliography’) that shows the references
for the publications you use. However, when speaking to slide 9, consider explaining how and
why some of your listed publications relate to the three dimensions and/or your thesis
Add citations to your slides to support the ideas discussed;
Practice your speech before recording your voice (external students) and carefully check that
your recording is audible;
Speaking/presenting to an audience:
o Be engaging vary your tone and add suitable emphasis to certain words
o Make slides readable and attractive from distance – minimum 24-point font;
o Keep slides uncluttered – use bullet points rather than full sentences;
o Do not read slides – use the slides to support what you are saying;
o Use an academic tone – not colloquial language.
Over the page is a template that shows what we expect you to cover in your essay plan on slide
5. This example diagram does not include any details (ideas or publications) that specifically
relate to any essay – but we expect you to include such details.
