Research Essay
Students will write an essay on the following topic:
a) Critically discuss the extent to which the social model of disability is representative of the lived
experiences of people with disabilities.
The essay should:
 Indicate the word length at the end or on the cover sheet. The word count should not be more than 10%
over or under the word limit – marks will be deducted if they are.
 Be presented in appropriate academic style (structure, neat presentation, following the referencing style
guide, correct grammar and punctuation etc).
 Have a clear focus and manageable scope.
 Synthesise information on the topic in order to make a cohesive argument.
 Provide scholarly evidence in support of the argument made, including research using quantitative and/or
qualitative data.
 Demonstrate an understanding of key concepts used (please note, this does not mean the insertion of a
definition, but the application of the concept in a way that shows your understanding. Aim to paraphrase as
much as possible).
 Cite and reference at least ten scholarly sources from the unit reader, further reading list or
recommended journals.
