(ENGLISH) Summative Task Social Studies People and Environments: Canada's Interactions with the Global Community: An International Organization
This is a summative task for the NEW Social Studies Curriculum in Ontario. It is based on Grade 6 Social Studies (in English)
In this summative task, students have to research an international organization (either governmental or non-governmental). For example the "United Nations" or "Doctor's without Borders".
This project is geared for the grade 6 Ontario Social Studies New Social Studies curriculum 2013 but could fit other grades and curriculums (may have to be slightly altered)
This Summative task includes the following:
-overall and specific expectations
-graphic organizers for students to organize their summative tasks (10 pages for students to fill out)
-due date guidelines
-success criteria in student friendly language
-rubric to be handed out to students (also the rubric is used to evaluate the student's presentation - it can be highlighted!)
*the rubric is based on the Ontario Social Studies Achievement chart from the new curriculum
-Exemplar using the United Nations as an example (graphic organizers filled out as an example; could be reviewed with the students).
*The final presentation can be on PowerPoint, Prezi, Bristol Board, pamphlet form, etc. However, because the students are doing some research as homework, it is best if the presentation is an oral one as it is a formative mark. Students can then explain orally and the
teacher will get a better idea of their understanding (obviously for those who have difficulties with oral language, please accommodate!)
If you are not in Ontario, you can still use most of this package and rubric as it is a project on International Organizations which is often relative to many provincial curriculums (you may just have to adapt it slightly).
