    • YEAR 10, 2009 Facing the future: Shaping the Future An Inquiry-based Project
    • What is it?
      • It is a Collaborative Learning Project (CLP) that has a future focus and a global one.
      • It’s an opportunity to be involved in hands-on research in an area of particular interest to you
      • You will be investigating a key question or problem from an area of shared interest.
    • Focus Areas
      • This area of interest will be based on your own reflections about:
      • what matters to you – eg environmental concerns, business and finance,
      • what you would like to know more about – eg astronomy; higher order mathematics; world literature; philosophy
      • what you might like to better at – eg creative writing; dramatic or musical performance; multimedia technologies; visual arts; design
    • Focus areas: eg fashion/design, textiles/Business

      • 1. Real world in a global context
        • Speak to/liaise with people outside school community
        • Involve interviews or surveys; global resources of a ‘primary nature’ (eg OECD data)
        • Issue itself can be a current global one
    • You will become an expert in your field through collaboration:
        • Each person in group takes one of the big questions from their investigation – become the expert
