First Marker’s comment and feedback
Expression of ideas: There are some issues with expression and sentence construction, which require some attention before CW2 is contemplated - please make this a priority at the start of Term 2.
Structure and referencing: There is a limited structure to the writing, although the discussion of Josef does provide an `anchor` to the topics throughout the writing. The list of reference is relevant to the topics considered, but these could be used more effectively to support the discussion.
Linking theory with relevant aspects of the pupil profile: The consideration of theories from the module content is somewhat disordered. Please review the annotations and comments in the margins and body of the writing for more particular details of this, and make an appointment to see me, if necessary, to discuss.
Effective engagement with Learning Outcomes: See the comments above; this submission does not meet the standard for a pass.
L.O.1: Understand and analyse language and education issues from socio-historical and socio-political perspectives, in local, national and global contexts.
L.O.2: Understand the theoretical frameworks that underpin current thinking relating to additional language acquisition and language competence, including the competing views of the relationship between bilingualism and cognition, and assess the research evidence on which they are based.
L.O.5: Gather relevant information for/from an interview with a bilingual/mutilingual learner, preparing for the issues raised, anticipating responses and generally conducting the gathering and exchange of information in a competent and professional way.
