We will know we have been successful when we have worked together as a group to:
  • summarise the philosophy/big understandings for a chosen model
  • describe its cycle and/or key stages
  • discuss how we might incorporate the key competencies
  • critically analyse the worth and relevancy of this model to reflect the culture and needs of the Botany Downs School learning community (what's good, what's dodgy?)
  • complete a 5-10 minute digital presentation to communicate our understandings and recommendations on Tuesday 16 September
