Finding Out

Students will need to obtain more information about the issues they are going to investigate. They can identify questions of interest and research these either in small groups or on their own. Once information is gathered, it can be shared using chosen communication methods e.g. short presentations. Students can continue finding out by completing a range of investigations, including gathering data. They use appropriate methods to present and communicate what they have found out.

Drawing Conclusions

Students are provided with activities that help them further develop their ideas and opinions. T hey describe issues from different perspectives. They identify, examine and justify different points of view.

Assessment and Reflection

Reflection time provides students with an opportunity to value what they have learnt and the learning processes in which they have been involved. Evaluation or assessment tasks during the unit of work will need to conclude.
