L1 Social Studies 1.1 practice external powerpoint Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Describe how cultures change 4 credits
  • 2.  This achievement standard involves describing how cultures change  We are going to use the Vikings as our culture  This achievement standard will be assessed at the END OF THE YEAR during NCEA exams  This is going to be a practice external based on the Vikings, it will be open book.  In the end of year exam you will be given a resource booklet which you will base your answers off
  • 3.  For this standard you will need to describe how a culture changes.  Let’s break it down:  Giving an account of the change involved  The individuals/groups/society that is involved  Giving an account of the PROCESSES that led to the change  Points of view about the change  Why the processes led to the change were important for the individuals/groups/society(s) involved
  • 4.  You are going to have 2 periods to research this in class and homework time to complete your research.  You are going to base this research around the Vikings  Any notes you write down in your book may be used in the practice assessment but you may not pre-write an answer  We are going to write up this assessment over 3 periods – Friday 11th April, Monday 14th April and Tuesday 15th April
  • 5.  What do you need to research?  During your research you are going to need to use the template on the following page to guide this process.  Over a double page in your book, rule up the planning page with subheadings shown on the next slide
  • 6. Name and description of the cultural change Name and description of the individuals, groups and/or society involved Social Studies concepts (use at least two) Viewpoint(s) How points of view contrast Points of view about the change Viewpoint(s) PAGE 1 OF YOUR DOUBLE PAGE
  • 7. Process that led to the change, and reasons why the processes were important for society Processes that led to the change PAGE 2 OF YOUR DOUBLE PAGE Processes that led to the change Importance of process for societyImportance of process for society
  • 8.  Our Culture for this practice assessment is the Vikings.  The most obvious example of a cultural change we can see is from the Viking culture back in 793-1066 to the European culture you see today in the Viking homelands of Norway, Sweden and Denmark  Remember to describe a change you have to say what it was like 1st and then what it became later on.
  • 9.  This means you need to first describe the Viking culture back in the 700s and then explain the changes that occurred over time to give us today’s European culture  How do we describe a culture? What things make up a culture?
  • 10.  You must apply 2 concepts to your description of cultural change.  These can be selected from:  Society  Change  Culture  Perspectives  Rights  Values  Social Justice Which do you think might be the most relevant?
  • 11.  A viewpoint is a way a person or group of people perceive a particular issue.  A person’s viewpoint is often determined by their background (ethnicity, race, gender, age, wealth etc.)  You need to select 2 CONTRASTING viewpoints about the change in Viking culture e.g. 1 who thinks the change was good, 1 who thinks the change was bad
  • 12.  A process is a linked series of actions or events that can occur over a period of time.  You need to select TWO processes and describe how they have led to or caused the change in Viking culture  You also need to describe why the processes that led to the change were important for the individuals/groups/society(s) involved
  • 13.  You can select from 3 processes that have caused cultural change of the Vikings  Write these definitions down in your book now……  Assimilation: When one culture absorbs into another or becomes similar  Colonisation: When another culture/country send settlers to a place and establish political control over it  Integration of new understandings: the Vikings took on the understandings and beliefs of the European culture
  • 14.  Your answer will be written as a series of paragraphs over the space of 3 periods.  It will cover the 3 main criteria for this standard  Describe the cultural change and the people involved in the change  Describe contrasting points of view about the change  Describe the processes that led to the change with reasons why these processes were important for the society involved  You can plan (not pre-write) your answer and use notes from your research to help you answer this in these 3 periods. It is OPEN BOOK
