QCA GUIDANCE ON CITIZENSHIP
AND HOW IRESPECT.NET HELPS YOU DELIVER BEST PRACTICE
- As you know, with Y9’s requiring Citizenship reports
from the summer of 2004 onwards, evidence will be necessary to justify
QCA emphasise that this should be light touch, but some rigour will
obviously be needed.
- Evidence might take a variety of forms – for example,
a portfolio; an exercise book; participation in discussion and debate;
- It will be necessary to check English speaking and listening levels
and also History/Geography levels for evidential and causal-effect
thinking – this
will give an idea of indicators of achievement.
- Student self-assessment
and student-teacher dialogue are also recommended
