EA300 Children's Literature is a terrible module. The course materials are poorly written and confusing (e.g. the main textbook will give a summary of an essay which bears no discernible relation to the essay itself). The tutor I was assigned was unhelpful and unsupportive and refused to give me any useful feedback on my work, even when I asked outright for it.
The assignment deadlines fall only 4 days after the associated tutorials. Unlike other level 3 modules I have taken, the assignments carry equal weighting and none are substitutable, which means there is no way to recover from a single poor mark at the start of the module. As the course is a jumbled mix of literature and sociology and there is a lack of guidance on what is expected in the assignments, many people in my cohort struggled to guess what was required, which made it almost impossible to get good marks.
I would not recommend this module to anyone and, if it is indicative of wider changes within the OU, I would be wary of taking any further courses with them.
