I have some concern regarding with what I learned from my teacher. It somewhat confused me compared to what i learned from your site and from other resources in the internet.. According to her, i have to follow the specific structure for every type of essay. Like the argumentative essay, for example, it should be written in 3 paragraphs only. First paragraph includes paraphrasing the question and my personal opinion about the paragraph should contain the reasons why i disagree or disagree and its supporting details. Lastly, template, paraphrased question, my opinion, and recommendation must be found in my last paragraph which is the third one.
One aspect of Australia’s convict heritage sites that has been neglected in the literature is the relationship between personal identity, place, and convict ancestry. As the above quote (recorded by Megan Best) demonstrates, many Australians consider convicts to be the builders of the nation, and in this sense, visiting a convict heritage site may be akin to a pilgrimage. A 2005 study of motivations of participants in “dark tourism” found that almost a third of those surveyed at Port Arthur Historic Site were motivated by a “desire to gain knowledge concerning family roots.” At the Female Convict Research Centre in Tasmania, family historians have come together to share their research and to lobby for the preservation of the site their ancestors were associated with – the Cascades Female Factory Historic Site. Asking more questions about the connection between convict sites and identity may also tell us more about the types of heritage that are important to local communities, whether or not they are descended from convicts, and how the legacies of the system of convict transportation are shaped and reshaped throughout generations.
