EL4221: Narrative Structures
Project Report Notes: Some Suggestions

The project report is a necessary component of your project. The word limit and deadline for the report are given towards the end of the project main page. Here are some suggestions on the questions that you may want to answer in your project report. These are just suggestions. Feel free to develop questions of your own, especially if they are relevant to your project.


  1. How did your group answer the question for the project?
  2. How closely is your report related to your presentation? While the report should reflect what is presented, this may not always be possible.
  3. Were there disagreements in the observations of project members or was there a great deal of uniformity? What is the nature of the agreement or disagreement?


The main ideas or concepts that are relevant in your answer to the question. Paradoxically, this is the most important, but at the same time, the most open section of your report. Variations between the various reports are expected. There should, however, be a sense of organisation in this section of the report.


  1. What has your project achieved?
  2. Can your observations be more generally applied? In what way?
  3. How has your work for the project help you to understand the importance of cooperative work for some kinds of linguistic or literary research?
  4. How has your work enhanced the critical thinking of the group members? Will it help others to enhance their critical thinking with regard to the topic that you have worked on in your project?
