The students will start brainstorming issues and ideas and thinking about concepts at the start of Unit of Inquiry 5
Students will spend 6 weeks working on their inquiries in March and April
The students will continue to have all subjects during the Exhibition time, but the majority of each day will be used for working on inquires.
The students will develop their own Lines of Inquiry using the provided Central Idea and Transdisciplinary Theme.
Sharing the Planet
Presentations will be at the Hearst Auditorium on an evening in May; displays of the projects will be in the AGC Annex multipurpose room in May, as well
Dates TBD
We are working on composing a central idea over the next few weeks.
What about homework?
The children will have less homework during this time.
Some homework for some subjects may be given each week.
The children should use their time at home to research and prepare for the work in class.
A lot of the work should be done in class so the teacher can keep track of progress, but due to time constraints some work may be sent home.
The main role is to support the inquiry.
Keep informed about the process by reading the Parent Portal and attending weekly information sessions.
Support and encourage your child.
Provide knowledge or areas of expertise to any of the groups.
Help to locate resources people, places, media and information
Celebrate with the students by attending the final presentations.
How will we assess the students' work?
We assess the process as much as the product.
The students will keep an organizer throughout the Exhibition that shows how their thinking and goals have developed.
This organizer will include pictures, diagrams, timelines and writing.
The mentors keep a journal that monitors student progress against a timeline.
4 Rubrics
Group Creative Presentation
Individual Research Paper
Group Display Board
Group Action
The students will self assess using the rubrics.
Mr. Matt and Ms. Lin will also use the rubrics to assess.
It is possible that a group will score very highly on one rubric and not so well on another. The rubrics will not be ‘averaged out’.
The mentor and class teacher will each write a short summary of their observations. These summaries and the rubrics will constitute the final assessment.
There will not be one final grade at the end.
As with any inquiry there will be times when it seems that students are not being very productive.
Sometimes there will be lot of discussion and thought but this will not result in anything that can be seen.
Students (and adults) need time and space to wonder about things and consider their plans.
This is why we place so much emphasis on the journals. They will show the understanding of concepts and application of skills (e.g. problem solving) more than the final product.
It will be related to this part of the IB's description of Sharing the Planet:
An inquiry into rights and responsibilities in the struggle to share finite resources with other people and with other living things.
