Our Writer’s Comment 

For your individual presentation, you will be required to choose one paper that is recently published. This is important to take note of because when you select a paper that was published earlier than the year 2018, it may greatly affect the marks that you will receive for this assessment. So, be sure to double-check before you move forward with the preparation for the individual presentation. Don’t forget that you will need to review the introduction, methods, results, discussion, limitations and future direction. Present all of these in a clear manner such that your instructor and your students can easily follow. Remember that your fellow students will need to rate your presentation, so take them into consideration when presenting.

In writing your essay, carefully decide on which topic you would be comfortable and confident reviewing. Depending on your topic and preference, you will also need to pick from creating a Systematic Review, Essay Review, or Meta-analysis. To make the quality of your essay better, try to read a couple of review papers that also talk about the same topic if you are able to find any. Before you start writing, make sure that you create an outline first. This is so that the content is logically structured and easy to follow. This is important because clarity is needed for you to receive high marks for this piece of assignment, so make it a point to write an outline before writing the essay proper.
