Term 3 Review

Today we made a term review on this term using Two Stars And A Wish. Our two stars and a wish is a bit different. Instead it is 'A Highlight, A Star and a Wish'. For the highlights we wrote our best highlights from this term. For the star we wrote what we were most proud of. For the wish we wrote what our goals were for next term or the future.

Inquiry Sample

Inquiry-Portfolio Criteria

WALT:  gather information


Eb (dress from around the world)- 
Every Wednesday we have been learning about the inquiry process while finding out about different cultural dress from around the world. The first stage of an inquiry is to gather information ‘Get It’. First we chose a culture we wanted to find out more about and then started researching. 


Matrix showing what you think and what your inquiry teacher thinks.

1. What are you most proud of? 
I am most proud that I can use different sources to research only one thing.

2. What did you find challenging?
What I found challenging is that it took a long time to find out what traditional indian pattern to use.

3.  My next ‘Get It’ goal is?
To take more time on planning my design.

You could use the below targets to complete the evaluation:

Reading sample

GET IT...use a range of sources by questioning and predicting
SORT IT...analyse and sort information to answer my question: see if my thinking has changed, look for patterns by questioning inferring, summarising
USE IT…discuss what I have found out with others and make connections 

TASK We have been using  the ‘GET IT, SORT IT, USE IT’ process. After reading ‘Wonder’ by R.J.Palaccio our group felt moved to DO something but we didn’t know what! We all had lots of questions so we decided to research more about disabilities before deciding. I wanted to know more about 

How we can help people with disabilities to be independent.

I can research using different sources.
I can think logically, creatively, and reflectively.
I can make generalisations from patterns and connections


Did my thinking change or stay the same during the ‘GET IT’ stage?
I think it changed. We did change our ideas of what we were going to do next. My thinking also changed because I never knew disabilities is something really important to help.
From ‘SORTING IT’ I can make these generalisations:
People with disabilities like to be independent,
Disable people with a disable lifestyle thinks it's 'their' normal but to us it's not normal,
‘USE IT’ (what did you do- those who did a social action, or what could you have done for this stage- for those who didn't?)
I am going to make a poster to persuade people to stop using disabled car parking even though they aren't disabled.
