For this assessment task, you will be building upon your knowledge and understanding of the concept that you explored in your second assessment task and exploring the learning progression throughout the primary years.
You will be required to choose three consecutive primary school levels to build your folio around (e.g. Foundation, Level One and Level Two). Once you have selected your levels, you will be required to follow the steps below:
Explore the Victorian Curriculum and describe how your concept is addressed, and how it progresses, throughout each of your selected primary school levels. (approx. 200 words) Please note: If you select Foundation level as one of your levels, it is appropriate for you to then acknowledge the progression from the early years.
Choose just one content description (for each of your levels) to focus on, that directly correlates to your concept and shows a clear progression. (approx. 40 words)
Find one resource (for each of your content descriptions) that you believe would effectively support the teaching and learning of each of your content descriptions. Please note: Two of the three resources must be ICT resources. For each resource you must include the following information: the name of the resource, evidence of the resource (e.g. screenshot and URL where applicable) and a brief description. (approx. 120 words)
To accompany each resource, you are to provide a written rationale justifying how it can be used to enhance children’s learning and engagement with the selected content description. Each rationale must be supported by academic literature. (approx. 300 words)
To help you structure the aforementioned components within your folio, the following template has been provided:
Concept: _____________________ (Please ensure that the concept clearly builds upon the concept you explored in assessment two. Provide a brief explanation if necessary)
Selected levels: _____________________
Description of how the concept is addressed, and how it progresses, throughout each level
Select one content description to focus on in each level, that directly correlates to your concept and shows a clear progression
Include the name of the resource, evidence of the resource and a brief description
Please note: 2 out of the 3 resources must be ICT resources.
Justification for your resource selection
This must be supported by academic literature
– Please ensure that you make links to academic literature and curricula documentation to support your statements. If academic underpinning is not evident, you cannot pass this assessment.
– Please ensure that you select specific resources (e.g. a specific app.) that directly link to your selected content descriptions.
Your submission will be assessed against the following criteria:
1. Knowledge and understanding of how your selected concept is addressed and how it progresses throughout each of your selected levels
2. Depth and breadth of selected resources
3. Appropriate writing conventions, including APA referencing, punctuation, grammar, spelling, sentence structure and word choice.
Your submission will be assessed according to the following marking guide:
Pass (P 50-59%) – In order to pass this assessment task, at least two of the three resources must be ICT resources and in addition, the requirements of all criteria must be met at a satisfactory level, and all work must be original unless correctly cited according to APA referencing conventions. Specifically this means that:
A developing understanding has been demonstrated as to how the concept is addressed and progresses across your selected primary school levels.
The resources that you have selected are mostly relevant to the designated content descriptions and levels. At least two out of three resources are ICT resources.
A written rationale has been provided for each resource that, in most cases, demonstrates a developing understanding of how it can be used to enhance children’s learning and engagement with the selected content description.
Each rationale has been supported by academic literature in a basic way.
You have adhered to relevant conventions of English and have maintained an appropriate degree of
