Hi guys, all same here. Busy full time mum has just started writing the 1st essay. Do you know anything about how many words minimum or maximum our essays should be?

And also don't you think that there are so many things to mention on assignment 1?

It doesn't say anything about how many words, my last course did, it seems like the questions are asked differently I suppose it's so you include everything

I was told as there are 45 points for each question at least 45 sentrances. I feel that I can not cover every point in that amount, so have done loads. Need to start the question number 2 now.

I don't hear from the tutor! I haven't done that for the first question, but will probably do more for the second xx

I'm still on the 1st paper, it's hard trying to fit it in, but once I start I try and do a couple of questions at a time, I'm enjoying doing it though, I've just done the Teaching Assistant Level 3 Diploma, I enjoyed that too.

Hey all, im doing this course too online, I have printed off the pdf unit 1 which consist of some reading and written activities to do . Are the activities just for our own teaching or are they part of the marking process ? I'm a little confused (doesn't take much to be honest!! ) only I did the activity 1,unit one and spend a long time and lots of typing only to then realise (I think) that the actual marking questions are separate from the pdf's . Can anyone tell me if they understand what I am going on about wether what I have done is correct or should the activities be more like note taking and mind maps ?
HELP!!!
