1. Look at the question and decide what it is asking.

2. Draw up a structure plan

3. Look out resources that will be useful for the coursework, these might
come from:
• Textbooks
• Information sheets
• Information from organisations or groups The school and local library.
• The Internet
• Videos
• The Bible
• Faith members

4. Make notes from your resources:


• Put things from the books in your own words, make notes of impor-
tant points
• Make notes of quotes from the sources - remember to include in the
quote where its comes from and (possibly) who it is by
• Make notes of sacred texts that are relevant to the point you are try-
ing to make
• Keep a list of all the resources that you use for your bibliography.
• DON'T just copy large chunk from the books - this can only get
you a few marks.

5. Make up a "timetable" of objectives and timings and keep to it. (you


will get help with this)

6. Do a draft of your coursework and get it checked for quality, Spelling,


Punctuation and Grammar, submit this on paper, disc or if possible e-
mail it as an attachment to Mrs Emmerson .

3
7. When it is all looking good write up your coursework. If possible type
it so that mistakes can be easily changed and corrections can be made.
You are much more likely to make a suggested improvement if you
don’t have to write out the whole essay again.
Make sure that any picture, drawings, graphs are also added and if your
have any supplementary material (tape, video, slides etc..) make sure
you have
indicated in the text where this should be used.

The last (and least important) thing is the cover do not spend lots of
time on a pretty cover, spend the time on the content.

8. Hand the coursework in by the deadlines - that gets it out of the


way !! And you are less likely to annoy Mrs Emmerson who has to mark
it. If you do not get coursework in by the final deadlines you will get zero
marks as I have to send it in to the examiner by a deadline. This is usu-
ally the end of April but I will have to mark it before then so stick to the
deadlines.

9. ASK FOR HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT AND DO NOT WASTE THE
LESSON TIME !!

Use the time that you have in class carefully and wisely - these are
NOT "free" periods! Use the time that you have effectively by
PLANNING your time. About half way through each section make an
appointment with Mrs Emmerson to check your progress. If you are
having problems - ask for help!

The most important part of your coursework is the structure plan. This is
the skeleton onto which you will build the work. It will allow you to:
• plan the content of the coursework
• arrange the content of each section
• write the correct amount for each section
• make sure you cover all the relevant material

First

Decide what points you want to make in each section. Make a note of
the book / article / other where this point occurs (so you can find it again
later). Make sure that there is a sensible progression from point to point.
Use sources and sacred text references to back up the points that you
make. If you are not sure then ask for help / advice.

Use heading and sub headings - write a sentence to cover each the
subject of each point.

eg: On abortion:
A(i) What is meant by abortion
* Legal position
- 1904 act - death of a child
- 1967 act - 24 weeks
- 1992 act - Human Embryo and Fertilisation

Writing up

In each section of the coursework


• The first paragraph explains what the section is about
• Each subsequent point has its own paragraph
• If you have 5 points you should arrange them in order of important in
the following order 2,3,4,5,1
• The final paragraph should sum up your arguments / points in each
section

Order of writing
1. Section A
2. Section B
3. Section C
3. Bibliography
4. Contents
5. Introduction

In your coursework you will be asked to write a bibliography. A bibliogra-
phy is a list of all the sources you have used in order to complete your
coursework (from Biblios = book and Graphos = to write). The bibliogra-
phy tells the
examiner what information you have used to support your work. It
shows that you have used a wide range of sources and that you have
acknowledged the work of the other people that have helped you with
your coursework.

The bibliography should contain any resources you have used for your
coursework. This includes books, articles, videos, CD-ROMs, the inter-
net, TV programmes, magazines or newspapers.

You should have a separate page at the end of your coursework entitled
'Bibliography'.

Each item you use should be acknowledged in the following manner (if
you do not know any of the information then leave it out)

Author, Title of book or article, Publisher, Date of publication


so for a book or this might be:
Joe Jenkins, Contemporary Moral Issues, Heinemann, May 1991

for a magazine or newspaper


Mary James, 'Does abortion endanger the mother's life ?' in the Nursing
Times Vol 3, McMillan, January 1996

for a CD-ROM
Malcom Spike, 'The life of Martin Luther King', Microsoft Encarta, 1998

from the internet


Paul Hopkins, 'Moral Language', The RE revision site;
