Designed as the culmination of work with the 'Empathy and controversy mini-program', the 'Activities for the empathy and controversy mini-program' and the 'Empathy and controversy Power Point' (all available within The Aussie Lesson Larder), this resource is a formative assessment to enable you to gauge student understanding of empathy and controversy.
The resource comprises of:
* A task sheet written for students - all you need to do is photocopy it for them, or upload it onto their virtual classroom
* A selection of practice essay questions for students to apply their new learning to, questions modelled on those that appear in WACE exams
* Two rubrics for marking this formative assessment, addressing engagement with the question, paragraphing, and understanding of the key terms. The rubric you use may depend on how much time you have and what level of detail you want to provide. One has simple, single criteria; the second has much more detail with the criteria broken down into smaller skills and competencies.
* Some discussion of how to make formative assessment marking as time-friendly as possible.
