An 11 page booklet that provides a complete scaffold for an independent inquiry project. Based on the Year 7 History curriculum, students extend their learning by researching the BIG QUESTION: Have we learnt from our past mistakes? Furthermore, students are asked to specially consider whether modern society has developed for the better since the glory of the Ancient World.
The booklet leads them through all stages of the project; from designing a research focus to developing a final thesis on the BIG QUESTION. The end product is a creative representation of their research.
Whilst the focus is on Year 7 History, the booklet could be adapted for any independent inquiry across all year levels. So if you want to dip your toes into some PBL this is for you!
