Child Labour within the Textiles Industry

Order Description

A draft needed before Dec 20th.

Structure
– Title page includes title of Dissertation, image, module code (TEX6002) and either your student number or your name.
– Contents list (including page numbers)
– Introduction
– Individual chapters (usually 3 or 4 depending on your subject and structure). It usually helps if these are named but they can be titled chapter 1, chapter 2 etc)
(again your choice).
– Conclusion – this is important and needs to be more than a couple of paragraphs as it consolidates the outcome of your research.
– Image list – images within the body of the text are labelled fig. 1, fig 2 etc. and named (but not given the full reference). The image list provides the full
reference for the attribution of the image. It would be fig 1, named, page … and then reference. Some choose to add a small thumbnail of the image but this is optional
(your choice again!)
– Annotated Bibliography (very important). The annotations can be brief (3/ 4/5 lines) to provide a snapshot of relevance. You do not include every book you’ve read –
only those relevant to the topic. These are your secondary research sources.
– Appendix (numbered) – a record of each primary research activity. E.g. Appendix 1 – title, date, record. Appendix 2 – title, date, record etc.
