Margaret’s account of the schooling she received as a child is both amusing and heart rending. Margaret is extremely unique in that for a short period of time, she received formal schooling in a middle class private girls’ school. Although her account of a working class girl in what she deems as a “posh” school is at times comical, I also found her account of the poor way in which she was treated extremely saddening to read. Overall I found this theme to be was an extremely interesting one to focus on.
I sent Piers a draft of my post to read over before I published it online, and also sent him my feedback for the work he emailed to me a couple of days earlier. Once published on the website, I tweeted a link to my work and also retweeted some of the links that had been posted by others from the module that week.
