UOI #3 Summative Assessment

Hi, everyone

We are at the business end of our UOI on commemorations and celebrations. Students are beginning research on a chosen country. Many of them are working in groups but some have chosen to work alone.

This unit will be presented at the end of Week #9 (starting Monday, 27th June, 2016)

The marking rubric (somewhat blurry) is found at below.

Summative Assessment:

  1. Make notes on each country that you ‘visit’ in the Unit of Inquiry. These will be assessed. (the note-taking has already occurred in the classroom)
  2. Write an information report on your chosen country or cultural group. Ask questions about commemorations and celebrations in that country (function). You may also ask other questions about your chosen country. Create a minimum of three (3) subheadings (or questions), however, four (4) or five (5) will be more appropriate for some students.
  3. Create a Venn Diagram recording differences and similarities between your chosen country and your Australian culture. (perspective)

As a reminder, this is what a Venn Diagram looks like:

Some people are choosing to present using PowToon.  This is a video/PowerPoint/cartoon form of presentation. You will need an email address but 3NR can use the following format: leigh.newton+firstname@gmail.com.   (where “first name” might be ‘bill’, or ‘clara’) e.g. leigh.newton+alison@gmail.com
This email for signing up will send an email to Leigh Newton who will then confirm the registration. Students will need to choose a memorable password, which should be written down for later use (because we all forget sometimes).

Time is short so if PowToons takes too long it should not be used.

  1. Hi Leigh,
    Could you please answer a question for us? We are trying to work out if an information report must be written in addition to the presentation or if the presentation is to contain the report? If that makes sense? Elisabeth has decided to create a poster and we need to know if this is to contain the Venn Diagram with dot points or brief paragraphs, or if a report containing the information + a creative poster is ok too? Hope this makes sense.
    Thank you,
    Joanne and Elisabeth

    • Yes, the information report is the report for the UOI. Easy. Dot points are okay but a better way of presenting is to use complete sentences, like you would find in an information book.

    • I’m glad to hear that. This one is almost finished but there’s three more to play around with this year. I hope it goes well. Mrs R and I will mark the work in the holidays. Mr N
