Trinity News : November 2008
Jake Gebron | Lebanese Grandfather Year 6 at the Junior School celebrated Australia’s migrant community as a culminating experience to their Unit of Inquiry, Life in a Suitcase. Dressed in the character of the immigrant they studied, the boys wrote and recited poems describing the life and journey of their chosen person. It was a wonderful evening of celebration, where many of the profiled people were present in the audience. The boys also displayed artefacts depicting the life of their person in a suitcase, including maps of their journeys, journal entries, photographs, books and other memorabilia. The audience was able to walk around and read about the lives of these amazing people, and taste food from their country of origin. Liam Brown | Scottish Grandfather Year 5 at the Preparatory and Junior Schools celebrated the conclusion of their unit, What a Profit!, by exploring the concepts of profit and loss. They formed their own companies and sold their products at the Year 5 Trade Fair. One of the most exciting stages of a Unit of Inquiry is the Culminating Experience, where students have the opportunity to demonstrate what they have been learning throughout the unit. It is a time of celebration. Celebrating what the students have learnt and how they can apply their understandings in life. The Culminating Experience is viewed as an important part of the students’ active participation in their own learning. It is an engaging and motivating experience for the students and often involves real- life learning experiences, presentations to audiences or the use of expertise from the community.
