EDES300 Comparative Education: Local and Global Contexts

Get Expert's Help on Response Questions

This assignment consists of 5 extended response questions.

Select one dimension of the Australian education system listed below. It is a good idea to choose a topic that you might later like to investigate in relation to other countries for AT2 and AT3.

Research your selected education system dimension and answer each of the five questions below.

Responses to each question should be approx. 150 words each. Please write your responses on a word document and include each of the questions with your written responses in the text (this will affect your Turnitin score slightly, but your markers will be aware of this). It is sometimes appropriate to use your own experiences as examples to answer some questions in this assignment if needed: If you do this, you must make it clear that this is your anecdotal experience. You need to include in-text references where appropriate, as well as a reference list. At least 2-3 references are expected in this assignment.
