Ordering a critical argument: the P.E.A. matrix (W7R)

The P.E.A matrix is a well-established concept of thesis construction, based on a simple structural model: The formulation of a hypothesis, followed by the presentation of research evidence, concluding with a body of analysis.

The session will use text-based activities to give you the experience of practising this model. The P.E.A. matrix model is particularly useful at planning and drafting stages, when chapters exist only in loose form.
