Inter-Disciplinary Project Work (IPW) provides opportunities for students to explore the inter- relationships and inter- connectedness of subjects. Through the IPW curriculum, students will be able to: ◦ source for information and apply it critically ◦ improve oral and written communication skills ◦ foster collaborative learning skills
Learners will understandthat… …effective communication is important to bring our ideas across to our intended audience. …group processes are necessary to work productively and effectively in a team. …it is important to discern the validity of the information gathered through verifying the credibility of the source and consulting multiple sources.
There are 5 Performance Tasks to be completed over the course of Semester 1 Each Performance Task is further broken down to a few components
Group facilitator: moderates discussions, keeps the group on task, assures work is done by all, and makes sure all have opportunity to participate and learn. Timekeeper: monitors time and moves group along so that they complete the task in the available time, keeps area clean, assumes role of any missing group member. Recorder: takes notes of the groups discussion and prepares a written conclusion. Checker: makes sure that all group members understand the concepts and the groups conclusions.
