Dear lovely teachers,
I would like some advice if possible. I am in the process of putting together my written submission for the above in July and I am getting conflicting advice as to the "language" to use. I have chosen to write about the importance of technical exercises, which I would use and why etc (and it's something I'm very passionate about). When I first wrote the submission I wrote if from my viewpoint - what I would do and why (as this is what the question states). However, the advice I have been given, is that I should write it in the 3rd person and not talk about "me" at all (ie never using "I would, I have etc...."). That I should be using references and content from books - proving I have researched my subject well.
I've been told that the Viva Voce part of the Diploma is where I will be able to demonstrate my own experience and knowledge.
Now I am confused. Do I write it from my perspective and experience as a teacher - or do I write it as a research paper? I thought the whole point of the Diploma was to prove and show that you have the experience and knowledge to teach up to Grade 6? But I am being asked to write the paper from the perspective of someone who has never taught - but has the knowledge through reading very good singing books.
Thank you so much for your help in advance.
