TMA: Second Semester 2019-2020

TMA: 50 points

Length:  1000 words

Question: Discuss the relationship between ‘fantasy’ and ‘reality’ in P. Pearce’s Tom’s Midnight Garden with reference to the novel and to critics’ views on the topic.

Student Notes:

For this TMA, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Plan your essay ahead of time by writing a plan highlighting the main points you intend to cover.
  2. Write a thesis statement stating your argument to be included on the first page of your essay.
  3. Select a few scenes that relate to your argument. State what they tell us, and add your own comments and interpretation. You need to analyse the text rather than simply describe it.
  4. Make sure your essay refers to some quotations from the novel.
  5. Your analytical comments should precede or follow every time you quote from the text under discussion or from the critical material you refer to.
  6. Reference to critical material related to this topic is necessary (you should refer to at least 3 critical works).
  7. All your references should follow the Harvard citation system uploaded on the LMS for your perusal.
  8. At this stage, you are expected to know how to paraphrase and synthesize the material you read, using your own words as much as possible. You still have to quote and use quotation marks in the right annotation methods you have learned.
  9. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact your tutor.

Using the e-library on campus:

Students are requested to visit the e-library on campus and use it to write a proper TMA. They are also requested to show their tutor that they used the e-library for the TMA by referring to some articles they have read. Students who use and refer to material from the e-library will subsequently gain marks.

The following are guidelines on plagiarism:

If you submit an assignment that contains work other than yours without acknowledging your sources, you are committing plagiarism. This might occur when:

  • Using a sentence or phrase that you have come across without referencing your source.
  • Copying word-for-word directly from a text
  • Paraphrasing the words from the text very closely without acknowledging your source.
  • Using text downloaded from the Internet
  • Borrowing statistics or assembled facts from another person or source
  • Copying or downloading figures, photographs, pictures or diagrams without acknowledging your sources
  • Copying from the notes or essays of a fellow student

You can avoid plagiarism simply by always putting your quotes and paraphrases in a reference. Feel free to use material from elsewhere as long as a proper reference is given. Follow Harvard style referencing for your bibliography and in-text citations.

(Slightly adapted from OU document on quoting versus plagiarism)

It is important to remember that plagiarism is strictly barred and will be subject to punitive action by the Arab Open University.
