Placing Items into the Four Categories???

Unread post by JennyO »

Hi There,

Does anyone else find it difficult to place certain items in one of four categories: Prized Possession; Keepsake; Junk; Tool?

In particular, I am talking about items that are up-to-date and used regularly by the client, such as: clothes, shoes, accessories, notes/messages, books, magazines, DVDs, TVs, phones.

Would those items fall under the Tool category?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks.

If they are items that the client still uses, I placed them in tools. The exception could be if the item had emotional and functional value, like certain books, CDs, games. Then they could be classified as prized possessions.

I recently did the categories. My tutor marked music CD's and DVD's and games wrong when I put them in prized possessions. She said they were junk. Just FYI for those who are taking the course now.

Same as above, my tutor marked items I put in prized poss & keepsakes as junk .... obviously disagree and that info would in fact come from a client. I had a really difficult time with the viewpoint of the tutor in Exercise 3 of Unit A. What would have been helpful in this assignment is if it had been noted somewhere in the reading that we didn't need to place items in ALL of the categories ... bit tricky for no good reason.
