Critically discuss the ways in which the ideas of one early pioneer have influenced current Early Years provision in England and Wales.
This should have a conventional essay structure: Introduction, main body, conclusion. No subheadings.
You must show at least six sources in your work. Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS) must be a source.
You must use at least two books.
Plan and write in paragraphs, a theme at a time.
This time, you do not need to comment on your sources. Instead, you need to evaluate what you have read critically.
Comparing and contrasting is a good start. To evaluate, you need to show that you have thought carefully about what sources say. You can do this in each paragraph by showing your understanding of the evidence for and against each point, then basing your conclusion on that evidence.
An introduction should set out what you intend to do in the essay. Note: you do not need to repeat the title in the introduction – but do make sure that it is at the top of the essay.
Possible development, paragraph by paragraph: you could go idea by idea, or deal with the pioneer’s ideas first, then follow with current provision.
To conclude, you need to sum up the argument you have made in the essay. Try not to repeat what you have said, and refer back to the introduction.
What does ‘pioneer’ mean?
For the purposes of this assignment, an ‘early pioneer’ is someone who was among the first to put something into practice, or to actually do something.
So Locke, Rousseau and other philosophers were not pioneers because they formulated theories and did not carry them out.
Pioneers mentioned in the module include Steiner, Pestalozzi, the Macmillan sisters (they count as one as they worked so closely together), Montessori, Froebel, Robert Owen and others. If you have found a pioneer who interests you but has not been mentioned in any detail (eg Susan Isaacs), you may write about that person.
If you are not sure, check with the tutor.
