Inside Reading: The Academic Word List in Context
This assignment is adapted from the Writing and Discussion Topics section on p.96, Unit 7 “Modeling Nature”.
Format and Word Count:
The student’s work should be:
• written in a form of an ESSAY of around 800 words (13 marks)
• presented in class in any form the student finds suitable such as PowerPoint presentation, pictorial presentation, talks and open discussion, role-play and dramatization, etc. (5 marks)
The essay should include a list of references (print and electronic) at the end in addition to in-text referencing as per the requirements of the MLA Referencing System. Proper referencing is a serious academic requirement and skill which will be rewarded accordingly (2 marks).
Writing and Discussion Topic:
An economic bubble is an economic cycle characterized by rapid expansion followed by a contraction. It occurs when speculation in commodities (such as oil), securities (such as stocks and bonds), real estate, or collectibles (such as coins, paintings, antique cars, stamps, baseball cards, etc.) drives up prices well beyond the item's intrinsic/core value. Are there currently any economic bubbles developing in the world? Think about things like real estate values, the stock market, and popular collectibles.
You are required to:
1) Choose a specific commodity/product that was booming in the past and is an obsolete and outdated now.
2) Research well what made it a flourishing commodity and how it turned to be an obsolete or old-fashioned.
3) Describe the situation where people displayed mass hysteria when this new commodity/product came out and the current situation.
4) Discuss the reasons behind this.
5) Provide some tips to avoid falling as a victim of an economic bubble.
6) Present your work in-class.
Guidance on Addressing the Topic:
Before you embark on writing the essay, you need to read carefully Unit 6 “Economics: Booms and Bust” in order to familiarize yourself with the topic at large and make use of the specialized vocabulary items in your essay.
You are strongly advised to consult sources on the topic and widen your knowledge of the topic under consideration, but it is of the utmost importance to document any words or ideas that are not your own.
Once you have the material ready, it is advisable that you follow the steps (1-6) indicated in the section above to avoid omitting sub-questions. Although the topic is from Unit 6, you should demonstrate your knowledge of the reading strategies covered in other units, as well as the words covered in those units.
