I have used several of the resources on this site! In addition, the site organization has helped me to better grasp how to organize my coursework...I wish I had more free time to search on the site! I'm grateful that our school paid the subscription...

    The 200 words is noted on the OCC website. I would have them edit it down.

    The Letter of Consent
    Dear Ian, it definitely should not affect their marks. But if they can delete it, it would be best.

    The Letter of Consent
    On marking, I've come across appendix copies of 'school's version' of the informed consent that include my name as the teacher responsible - this is not immediately obvious which is why I haven't noticed it until now - is it worth me returning...
