I’ve been totally swamped with work in the last few weeks, so I haven’t been able to get the next podcast edited. I’m doing my best, but I’m only one guy…
In the meantime, you can have a look at this breakdown of how a student could go about approaching the second part of the project with this resource: Citizenship Project Section B Handout. I’ve broken it down section by section and tried to ‘reverse engineer’ how I think the marking scheme must have been applied. Obviously, I’m open to correction on this, but it might help bring at least some sense of what’s expected of the students. Maybe this helps the teachers more than the students, but lots of people contacted me to ask for a follow up to the Section A Annotated handout that I posted a few weeks ago, so here you go…
The big difference between how I approached this task, compared with the Section A example that I gave previously, is that I’ve deliberately chosen work that was deemed to be of a H2 standard, and have tried to indicate how I think it could be improved upon in a number of different areas to hit the H1 overall. At least that way, the students might be able to use the handout to see how to improve their own work from a lower to a higher grade… you know… learning and stuff….
As always, it’s just my best guess, and I’d be only too happy if the SEC wanted to give us ANY sense of how they had marked it, but I’m not holding my breath on that one!
Anyway, hope it’ll be of use to at least some of you.
