The coursework i submited is the assignment 2 and is the below essay incluting my tutors feedback:



Set Question

 It has been argues that teaching assistants have too much responsibility without being given sufficient recognition for what they do. Discuss the evidence that is available to support or refute this statement indicating which appears to be more persuasive.



The text is discussing the relationships between teaching assistants and teachers who are also in a creative team, emotionally tied up in the same things. The teacher assistants believe that they have to do more work for the students and their responsibility is a lot more than the teachers, because they help the teachers with their work.



The question becomes in the frame since higher assistants of teaching begin to take entire the categories and thus would be useful for seeing how their work has correspondence and how the professional identities can shift it self accordingly.



Considerations from question

The question is asking, if teaching assistants should be valued or recognize for what they do and how many responsibilities they bare.

In able to answer this question the person must be able to know details about the children, the teacher s and also the teaching assistants.



Reformulated Question

The question can be asked differently in many ways, for instance the teaching assistants they have a lot of responsibilities, but also nobody recognize the work they do.



Central Argument

From this question the issue raised, if teaching assistants should be valued or recognize for what they do and how many responsibilities they bare. I believe for teachers and teaching assistant s job role should be defined. Because when somebody has experience it should also paid proportionally.



Structure (some of this may be subject to change before writing the essay)

The design of my essay will be 7 or 8 paragraphs. My essay will present my findings and thoughts on the set question.



Resources to be used (remember to use  Cite them right or the  quick reference guide



Suitable work for women? Roles, relationships and changing identities of  other adults in the early year s classroom British Educational Research Journal, Vol. 34 No.6, Jo Barkham.



The first article discusses about the female jobs, what is the role and the relationships between teacher s and teaching assistants. The teaching assistants are a team of faculty of women that they paid badly and the reason for this situation is that the other persons are conservative and think that the women should remain in the house.



 Teaching assistants are often drawn from a highly able and talented group of women who are poorly paid and are subject to contracts which are seen as unfair and unreliable.

It can be used to support the argument.



Who is teaching your child? The issue of unqualified subject specialists in Northern Ireland  Cambridge Journal of Education, Vol. 34, No. 6, John McCullagh.



The second article talks about the teacher s, if the teacher s are qualified to teach the children. In Northern Ireland the teachers are not-capable in order that they teach while the rate of no-capable teacher can is big as in the other parts. The concern still that in physics and the mathematics of the 10% of permanent teachers it is presented they are incompetent.



 Physics also appears to be using a higher percentage of unqualified staff than many other subjects suggesting a need to examine the recruitment and retention of qualified physics teachers .

It can be used to support the argument.
