some further examples are provided. If you have
a great idea, we'd love you e-mail

the students to 'go for it', I have found it extremely valuable for the
class to discuss what they have discovered first. In fact, the assessment
could be done as a discussion activity rather than a written activity.
It can be easier to get feedback from each student by getting them to
write their thoughts down. Some students however can express their ideas
much better orally than they can in print. Be aware of these differences
in learning styles. It is important that the students think carefully
about, 'Why did I learn all this stuff about ANZAC Day, what was the point
in it?' Hence the value of discussion before letting them 'go for it'!
At each level,
a question that relates to knowledge, attitude and skills is included.
There is also a space for you to add a question of your own. This may
relate more specifically to the approach you used with your class.

important that people should know about this?
What is one way that
this information could be shared with as many people as possible?
|It is important
that we respect other people. ANZAC Day ceremonies are one way of
doing this. Why is it important that we keep showing respect to people
who were involved in the World Wars even though in a few years there
will be hardly anyone from WW1 or WW2 still alive?
