I have to give a 2 hour lecture on writing a literature review this week.

I have all the content, but its going to be SO boring for them. I usually try to break it up every 10-15 mins with a practical hands-on task. but I can't think of anything!

I have one task, which is basically a block of texts with no references in and I want to them to say where they'd add them.

but apart from that I'm stuck! They won't have access to PCs/the internet either so I can't do any "find an article on xyz" tasks either

Any ideas?

Can you get a couple of examples of ones done by students - good, bad and indifferent - and get them to mark them and discuss their reasons? Or get them to design a matrix for keeping notes on the sources? Don't envy you at all...

Hi Sneaks,

If they had some books you could do the getting to the bottom of a book in 10 minutes excercise... Are they at the right stage for that? My masters students found it most useful.

I hope all is going well.
