Foundation Degree TMA help!


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am doing my Foundation degree with the OU, for TMA4 I have to compare and contrast children's learning experiences within Communication and Language.

I also need to include some theorists.

Is anyone able to point me in the right direction??

Thanks

:unsure:

Noam Chomsky springs to mind as one of the most obvious theorists.

Not sure what OU mean by compare and contrast children's learning experiences within C&L - maybe a compare and contrast could be a bi-lingual or eal child's experiences compared against a native english speaker or a child with a speech and language delay using perhaps non-verbal communication against a fluent talker?

Having completed my foundation degree and BA, these 'compare and contrast' words crop up a lot. You need argue one theorist against the other, linking it to early years/your setting if possible... and use critical analysis throughout. Do this and you will sail through. Hard at the beginning, I know, but as you progress, it will be come a lot easier. Good Luck !!

Thank you both for your help, I will have a go and see how I get on.

 

I struggle with the academic writing and referencing and not having a very helpful tutor doesn't help, also I am currently living aboard so not able to make the tutorials which doesn't help! I use the forum and resource section when I need inspiration or help it's very helpful.

 

Thank you
