Rights and Responsibilities has now come to an end, with a massive celebration today (more about that later) and our final reflections.
My final reflections are still to come, but I have to say that the last two weeks were the best of the unit, the students taking control and again showing me that this is the best way to learn.
The summative assessment was an open-ended task. The stimulus was the central idea, and the students chose from a range of ways to respond to “Rights and responsibilities are important aspects of community life”.
We determined the following criteria:
- use of persuasive language (beginning, using the structure of persuasion)
- show the clear link between rights and responsibilities
- show the positive effect that responsible members have in a community
The students in my close chose role plays and cartoons (using toondoo) to present their ideas. It was great!
