Summary of Learning (Final Assessment)

Note:  This assessment has been adapted from Dr. Alec Couros and Katia Hildebrandt’s Summary of Learning that they have their students perform at the University of Regina.

Students will produce an artefact (e.g., narrative, slide deck, audio, video, concept map, other visual, etc.) that summarizes the learning experience in Environmental Science 20. The artefact should reference significant course experiences (e.g., units that we have studies, Science in the News topics and how they relate to our course, discussions, labs, etc.). Your own recorded live audio and/or video is required. Students may work with a partner for this activity; suggested length of artefact = 5-7 min for individuals, 8-10 in pairs. In some cases, format will necessitate artefacts of shorter or longer duration – please consult me if your project will fall outside of these parameters.

Due date: Students will share these artefacts to their blogs prior to the final assessment date.  We will present our Summary of Learning to each other during the scheduled final assessment block.

Course weight:  As this is a final assessment, your Summary of Learning holds a weight of 25% of your overall mark.

Please pay attention to the assessment rubric.  DO NOT WAIT until the end of the course to begin your assessment, this is designed for you to work on throughout the entire course.  You will be given SOME time to work on this at the end of the course (during what would have been your review classes). 

Some examples are below (these are from a few courses that I took at university, therefore the subject matter is not Environmental Science, however the final product will give you an idea of what I expect).

Try using iMovie or Movie Maker:

Maybe you could make a song!

How about creating a game?

Or using something like PowToon!

 

OR you could create something like Prince Ea:

Assignment Calendar

Welcome!  

What is an Assignment Calendar?   This is an easy to search chronological archive of our unit!  I will post what we did in class, assignments, reminders, announcements and updates as needed.  How does this benefit you?  This is a place where you can go to check out what we did during the day (if you were missing school) and is a place where I will be posting assignments, some extra resources,  or links to blog posts of the assignment.  This post will be very helpful to you if you would like to check on a past resource or assignment if needed!
