Assessment Suggestions

Below are some suggestions for assessment activities. These are at two levels. They are only suggestions, there are numerous ways you could assess this unit - some further examples are provided. If you have a great idea, we'd love you e-mail it to us at Brainways so that it could be shared with others!

Before telling 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.

Level 3 & 4:      Thinking about what I have learnt...

Explain something that you have discovered about people who were involved in war. This should be something that you think it is important for people to know about today.

 

 

 

Why do you think it is important that people should know about this?

 

 

What is one way that this information could be shared with as many people as possible?

 

 

Knowledge

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?
