SV1 & Assignment 1: Context Paper, 1,500 words,
What are this area’s urban development strengths and weaknesses?
Files are lecture slides, tutorial ppts and some readings and a marking criteria. And a word document with Route 3 Photos.
The essay (1,500 words or about 3 single-spaced pages) will be based on your observations and is due on Monday 8 April by 4pm via LMS.
In your essay, you are expected to focus on the five themes (socio-cultural, environmental, economic, urban form/amenity and governance) and to use your SV1 audit data and other sources (literature, reports, lecture material, etc.) to analyse how the Sunshine area is currently performing (and for whom…). You may devote more space/energy in the essay to one theme but you are expected to provide at least some perspective/observation/analysis on all five. Illustrations (maps, photos, sketches) are encouraged and you must refer to at least three readings, from this class or elsewhere, in your essay. You must have a strong central argument, reflected in your title, your introduction and your conclusion.
The essay will be assessed on:
• CLARITY: You present a strong argument and express a convincing opinion on planning
• Linking to readings, fieldwork, and presentations: your ability to link in (or contrast) your opinions with the scholarly (readings) and practical (planning report) literature, the fieldwork, and class presentations.
• Analysis rather than mere description: what is good and bad about these places? How could planners do better? Detail is MUCH better than trying to cover everything.. Site Visit Assignment.
