Hi Louise,

 

It's great to hear you are still studying! I was taught to ask 'how does' (or how can) rather than can eg How does emo. lit. affect learning... and then you can discuss the different aspects such as improved behaviour across the whole school, improved results (as steer report found) etc. Define what emo.lit is in your introduction intro. If you say 'can emo. lit....' then the answer is either yes or no.

 

How is life in Farnborough these days?

Hello Ann,

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply to me.

Yes ,as you can see i am nearly finished , much to my husband and family's relief. I have been living and breathing this dissertation, my head is been in the clouds and i have been working full time in a reception class with all the paper work that entails, I.E.P'S ect.

Thanks again!

I did think also think about, 'A critical evaluation of the validity of emotional literacy in an infant school or classroom'.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

love Louise

Hi Louise,

 

It sounds very academic! I don't think you should panic about the title. I finished my MA (ED) a couple of months ago and changed my title at the last minute. It was fine even though like you I used to go to bed thinking about references and plagiarism instead of things we should be dreaming about at night. Here are some thoughts from a fellow traveller. Your review is the critical evaluation of the literature so you might not want/ need to include that in the title but you will be graded on how well you have achieved it. Is your review limited only to literature about one infant classroom, or does it apply to a wider remit such as 'the Early Years'. Your discussion will be based on your own research of course so if you did a case study for example, a possible title might be'Emo. Lit. in the Early Years: A case study'

(case studies were a very popular title in Southampton uni.) Plain old 'Emo. Lit. in the Early Years' or include yourself -' the role of the lead practitioner in promoting EL in the Early Years '.

Sounds as if you are just about finished and then you'll wonder why you worried about it so much!

 

Good luck

Hi Ann,

Thanks again for taking the trouble to reply to me. Everything that you said made so much sense. I think that i am just panicking and i couldn't see the woods for the trees.

I haven't got the Katherine Weare book, but i have read bits and pieces of excepts from the internet and also articles making reference to her thoughts in newspapers.

Thanks again, you really have helped me when i thought i was going wrong.

love Louise
