MOVES IN SOCIAL WORK STUDENTS’ REPORTS
This study investigates the rhetorical move structure of case reports written by Social work students during their fieldwork placement. Twenty six case reports were collected and interviewed twelve students from department of social work office. Reports were analysed using move analysis (Bhatia 2003) I am looking at moves in student reports that indicate the communicative purposes in the texts and how language is used to express these moves or to achieve the communicative purpose. The findings show that students’ reports have six moves, and the reports have two communicative purposes.
