Labelling
Labelling I am completing a research project on the effect of labelling children and what this does to their self esteem and attainment. It is based around the primary aged child but not a specific key stage. Any information you could give me would be great. I have looked at a few journals on the effect of informal and formal labelling.

In primary science, which is the curricular area I work, in these are called pattern-seeking investigations.

I have found nothing to date since scatter graphs are only introduced to children in the UK in Key stage 3, not

1.2. Motifs and memorability

One of the reasons that we find film music memorable is that it uses distinctive melodic motifs to ‘catch’ the main characters it describes. The James Bond theme is a good example of this, but a modern composer who has had great success with memorable motifs in all his scores is John Williams (Jaws, Star Wars, Harry Potter). Click here to read an interview with Williams from 1998.
