I quite like this one as well my final one for this module is to do an extended enquiry but haven't looked at that yet.
Had a bit of a loss of temper with my tutor for other module on Sat (although he dont know it yet) asked him about referencing for first part cos it's only 750 words and we need to discuss the four major disciplines for assessing childhood it wants us to inlcude references and it's only 120 words per discipline - not much so he says oh refencing doesn't count in text (it distinctly says it does in the guide) and then he says oh if words are short just put a number in brackets and then write up a reference list.
Now this is totally against all previous modules so I thought sod you and have sent an email to o.u. asking them to clarify their referencing policy. Have also emailed him to ask for confirmation of what he said on Saturday.

got my results for the other module (the one with the tutor I don't like!)
I am very pleased with this one as I wrote it while OFSTED were in! Well I started it the day we got the call as I had a p.d. day and finished it on the Wed eve at 11.30. The marking policy has changed and I have got a pass 2 (anything between 70 and 85% I got 79%). The tutors comments included
'at times your writing becomes a trifle unclear - take care this does not happen'
but I think a 'trifle unclear' is not too bad considering my mind was taken up on other things and I didn't have time to proof read lol

Well onwards and upwards must finish off the last E101 tma (one more after this for that one which is the final must pass one) and start the reading for next childhood one which isn't due in until may but would like to start part A which is to research a youth subculture and write a case study on it!! I've a whole book to read before that!!!!

well passed assignment 4 with 85 so now only got the end of module assignment left which is not too bad got a month to do that. Although got one due 16th May for my childhood module.
I've applied for my next module in october which is primary subject knowledge and practice. I am not allowed to do a level 3 course under transistional fee arrangements until I have done both level 2 course so I will only have one module next October. I'm going to do my science gcse instead.
I'm so pleased I started this when I did. I am paying 750 a module if I'd started later it would be 2500 per module!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well second essay has gone in for 'childhood' this one entitled 'play is a child's work discuss with relevant academic studies' or some such twaddle. also write a case study on a youth sub culture. Now I would think the sencond bit would have been quite easy but actually was the harder for me.
I'm not expecting anything special for this one as had to visit Sarah on a number of occasions to sort her planning and her out. Long story and not quite out of the woods yet but at least I'm not rushing of to Scarborough for a night of planning then having to drive back and get myself ready for the next day!!!! The first essay about 'what is a child' came back with a pass 2 (they keep changing the naming of the scoring.)
Now I have my end of module assignment for my other module to do before end of May and I can then concentrate on this childhood module. Roll on the holidays. As we move year groups after this half term you would think I would be having an easy week but it is going to be as hectic as usual.

submitted my final assignment for E212 today - a week early but before you all say wow well done I wanted to get it written 4 weeks ago so I would have the whole of the holidays and september to revise for the exam in October. So now I've got September to revise wish me luck because anything I put into my brain is forgotten about within a minute.
