Residential neighbourhoods take up the majority of developed land and we spend long periods of our lives within them. When thoughtfully designed they can provide a backdrop to an enjoyable life. Badly designed neighbourhoods on the other hand can make even the simplest, everyday activity seem a strain. Moreover, how neighbourhoods are designed can open up, or shut off, opportunities for the people who live in them; for example, opportunities to lead more sustainable and healthy lives.
Your assignment is an individual illustrated essay and should demonstrate the consequence of the Study Area’s residential layout design and the factors that need to be taken into account when designing for the future, or trying to improve places which are already built.
Analysis should be carried out in line with the lecture subjects, on a weekly basis, throughout the course. This analysis will form the basis of your report which critically analyses the Study Area, that is to say it highlights the positive and negative aspects of its design. Simple diagrams, photographs and illustrations should be used to demonstrate your analysis and backup your written text.
Finally, you should come up with a concept for improving the neighbourhood, there will be many ways of improving the existing design but you only need to highlight the one which you feel would be the most influential in bringing positive change. This will be presented in diagrammatic or illustrative form backed up with text explaining your rationale.
The report should be no longer than 2000 words and should be presented as a multi-page document in PDF format.
Please note more information about the study area will be sent through a variety of documents + general information about the essay
Your review should comprise six clear paragraphs within the limits of three double-spaced, typed pages in 12-point Times New Roman font and standard 1-inch margins. Summarize—rather than include—chunks of quoted text.
If the article you have chosen will not work within this plan, find a better fit or consult your Academic Expert.
State, “Review of a Scholarly Source submitted by [your full name] to [Academic Expert’s name] on [date].”
Provide the full and correctly formatted (APA style) source information for the article or chapter. Since this is a review of a single source, there is no need to put it in a bibliography at the end.
In paragraph one, briefly and clearly explain the thesis or research question of the article, the architectural phenomenon that is being examined, as well as the structure and parts of the argument. In this paragraph or a later one, consider where the article or chapter appears (if this information is relevant). Is it unusual in some way? Also explain who the article’s intended audience is.
In paragraph two, explain the context of the article by providing basic background on the essay. For example, if one of the essay case studies deals with Viking tombs, the context section should explain briefly who the Vikings were, when they lived and where, what the tombs were, and how they were used.
In paragraph three, explain the sources that the author uses to argue their thesis or investigate their research question. The author may state this information directly, or you may have to inspect the footnotes. In the case of a book chapter, sources are often explained in the book’s introduction. Do not simply present the obvious. This paragraph should be analytical; consider the effect of the author’s choices on your understanding of their argument. Feel free to mention problems or patterns you observe about these sources. Here are some questions to help you determine the types of sources used:
Do they comprise original or field research?
Are they books or articles?
Were they written recently or a long time ago?
What language were they originally written in?
In paragraph four, explain the author’s methodology, that is, how the author develops the argument and how the author uses the sources to support their argument, whether textual or visual. Sometimes an author may state this directly, but other times it may not be so clear. Here are some questions that may help you to determine the methodology:
Does the author employ a particular theory or interpretation?
Does the author use certain categories of questions to analyze the text/sources/visual evidence?
Does the author have to overcome certain problems or limitations with the sources?
Does the author use different sources in a particular combination?
Does the author use sources or parts of sources with which they both agree AND disagree?
In paragraph five, summarize the results of the research by describing clearly the author’s findings/conclusion(s). These might be given throughout the essay or summarized in its conclusion.
In paragraph six, identify and evaluate the significance or the major implications of the research findings and how they relate to your own research and interests in this course. This paragraph might include some critical engagement with features you have identified in earlier paragraphs. If you do not know much about the topic, you will not be able to evaluate the larger implication of the article, but you can, at least, explain how the article contributes to your own project.
Avoid using direct quotations from the article in this assignment: your goal is to summarize information rather than extract specific phrases. An exception might be when you explain a key phrase or term that the author uses. Remember to write your essay in an academic style that explains your article clearly in your own words.

Hello, I would please urge you to help me create a 8 page research paper arguing that futuristic architecture was created as a political tactic to further dominate the political power rather than thoroughly thinking about making a change in the architecture world. The file attached will help a lot with creating it at it has outlined the paper but I got a bad grade and comments attached in the same file explain why.
This assessment is worth 50% of the overall module mark
Imagine that you have been commissioned to write a report (research summary) for a major national or international organisation concerned with childhood or education. You do not have to specify this organisation in your report, but it might help to have one in mind (e.g. the UK Department for Education, Save the Children, or UNICEF).
Your report should be based around one of the key themes from the module (use the themes for each week to help you).
The report has three aims:
to present ‘state-of-the-art’ geographical literature on your chosen theme in a way that is rigorous but accessible;
to review evidence and/or data on your chosen theme from at least one secondary dataset;
to provide recommendations that the organisation could take forward in their work.
Guidance on structure and format
Your report should follow the indicative structure below (you may deviate from this but we strongly recommend following this structure, and discussing with us if you wish to do something different).
Title page (not included in word count): separate page with report title and your details.
Contents page (not included in word count).
Introduction: include the aims and objective of the report and a brief executive summary (200 words).
Critical engagement with the geographical literature (1,100 words).
Draw on the key geographical literatures which theorise children’s geographies/geographies of education in relation to your chosen topic.
Remember to make this review accessible – avoid or explain jargon or complex theoretical terms and focus on what a policy-maker or charity might need to know.
End with a summary of key questions or issues that evidence from existing datasets could help address – i.e. linking to the next section.
Review of evidence from at least one dataset relevant to your topic (500 words – figures/tables/quotations not included in wordcount).
You can choose the dataset(s) yourself, but reflect carefully on the reliability and robustness of the source (i.e. try to use government, charity, and/or established international datasets).
We recommend the following sources as starting points: the UK Data Service (UKDS); the Office for National Statistics (ONS); the Mass Observation archive; the Timescapes project and National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM) websites; the UK General Household Survey; ILOSTAT (the International Labour Organisation statistic service) and the UNESCO Observatory on the Right to Education. All are available to access free-of-charge and can be found via a Google search.
We have no preference as to whether you use quantitative or qualitative sources and you will not lose marks for using only the sources we suggest above.
You should carefully select key pieces of evidence – e.g. figures, tables, statistics, quotations, key findings. Try to be selective and to create a ‘narrative’ – an argument – from the dataset(s) that responds to the issues identified at the end of the literature review.
Make sure that you fully reference all data sources you use in a caption and in your reference list. In your caption, please note if you have adapted the data (use the caption data ‘adapted from organisation x (date)’ or ‘data sourced from organisation y (date)’. If there is no date available, state this in the caption. Include the full reference to the webpage or report in your reference list.
You should present the evidence and then explain/interpret in accessible language what you are presenting so that readers understand what they are reading, and why. You may refer back to issues in the literature review, but we do not expect to see lots of references in this section.
Conclusion and recommendations: a brief conclusion followed by 3-4 recommendations, informed by a geographical approach to the topic (200 words)
References cited in the proposal (no word limit): use the School’s standard referencing guidelines, provided during tutorials, to format your references.
Other key points to note
Your topics for assignment 1 and 2 need to be different i.e. you cannot focus on the same topic in both assignments; you need to be drawing on different literatures
Your report should have a title which reflects the content (be creative/imaginative)
Your report should be supported by at least 15 academic references (not included in the word count)
Your recommendations should be brief and formatted in bullet points
Word counts for each of the sections are indicative (but for the whole assignment the wordcount is set)
Present this piece of work as a report. We will discuss report-writing during the seminar in week 10 (i.e. two weeks before the deadline). However, if you wish to start earlier, we have four pieces of advice.
Look back at previous report assignments you undertaken during your studies (and look at feedback to see what you got right and what could be improved).

During the module we have explored two case study areas; the regeneration of Stirchley and West
Bromwich town centre. These have been selected as positive examples of community-led
regeneration or projects and initiatives where the community have had a meaningful contribution to
make to the process in terms of regenerating their own communities.
This assignment has been designed to enable students to undertake a process of self-directed study
on the importance of learning from best practice and to draw out lessons learned.
It is in this context that you have just been appointed as a regeneration consultant by Birmingham
City Council’s Director of Planning and Regeneration to examine best practice examples of
regeneration within the region.
You need to choose one of the two case study areas to focus on. The purpose is to try and inform
current debates by exploring what are the key essential lessons we can learn from past and current
You need to delve into your chosen case study and undertake the following tasks:
1. Investigate and research the nature and type of the regeneration project or initiative. You
need to clearly explain what the project or initiative is, the rationale behind it and identify
the issue the project aims to address.
2. Highlight and explain in detail the role (s) the community has played in the project.
3. Identify and fully justify 3 key success factors that emerge from your research. These also
need to be ranked in order of importance and you need to provide a rationale as to why this
is the case in order to help inform future regeneration policy in the city.
4. Reflect and identify the key challenges (up to a maximum of 3) and issues that needed to be
overcome in order for the project or initiative to come to fruition.
This is piece of self-directed work that will culminate in a written consultant’s report. This will give
you some additional experience of undertaking a real-life project and producing work of a
professional standard. These will be useful skills as you enter the workforce.
The Report (2,000 words maximum)
This is a professional report so keep it succinct and to the point. It should be well structured with
clear headings and sections as follows:
1. Introduction and overview
2. Rationale for the project
3. The role of the community
4. Identifying success factors (remember, these also need to be ranked)
5. Key challenges
Visuals are encouraged.
Writing a professional report – some basic tips
1. State your purpose and outline who you are writing the report for in one or two sentences
at the beginning.
2. Advisable to divide your report into short paragraphs to cover the topics you want to raise
and start a new paragraph each time you begin discussing a new idea. Often useful to
number the paragraphs so it is easy to reference or refer to in the future.
3. Use of sections and bullet points to be encouraged, as well as use of appropriate images and
visuals. Images, figures and diagrams need to be accompanied by an appropriate caption,
title and reference. They need to be legible and add value to the report i.e. don’t include
tables as a mechanism to reduce the word count.
4. Explain the background information pertinent to the report by giving the relevant
background to the area. You can either focus on the regeneration of the area in a broader
sense (e.g. in Stirchley by focusing on more than one example of community-led
regeneration for instance Stirchley Baths, Stirchley library, the work of Place Prospects and
the proposal for the co-operative development) or focus on one particular scheme. Ensure
the focus and scope of the report is clear within the introduction
5. Use accessible language.
6. Support your identification of good practice with reasoning and evidence. You need to draw
upon the relevant academic literature and policy documents as appropriate. You are encouraged to
think creatively about the sources as both regeneration initiatives are still in progress. For instance,
you can draw on wider themes and literature discussed throughout the course to substantiate your
7. Reference using in-text referencing and include a full bibliography at the end of the report.
8. Make sure you do a thorough proof-read and edit to ensure that the report makes sense and
there are no typos – bearing in mind for who the report is intended for.
Follow the assignment brief. This contains details of the structure of the report and the
information that needs to be included.
The examples uploaded onto Canvas are there to illustrate the structure and presentation of the
report. They are based on a different assignment brief.
