Activity 20.1

Activity 20.1

Preparing for assessment

We hope that you and your students have enjoyed learning NZSL. Now that you have completed Units 1–20 it’s time to say goodbye!

The purpose of Unit 20 is to give your students opportunities to:

  • be involved in decisions relating to their own learning
  • demonstrate the skills and knowledge they have acquired
  • further develop their capacity for self-assessment and peer-assessment
  • reflect with pride on what they have achieved.

For Unit 20, the students will practise the language and cultural knowledge they learned in Units 11–19 in situations where they can show their communication skills. With your help, they will choose tasks to perform that will consolidate their learning and demonstrate their achievement in NZSL.

There is a summary overview of Units 11–19 in the introduction.

Have another look at Activity 10.2 for guidance on the kinds of presentations the students can make, how to manage these, and whom they could present to. Worksheet 10.2 offers ideas for scenarios that are relevant to the earlier units.

Worksheet 20.1 offers further scenarios for your students to consider. Offer storytelling as an option. If some of your students choose this option, help them to define their topic and the units they can draw upon to express what they need to. Worksheet 20.2 offers some suggestions for storytelling.

The number of presentation items is at your discretion. You and your students will have your own ideas about how to organise the presentations so that all the students are fully involved and can demonstrate their capability in NZSL.

As a suggestion, you could divide the students into groups, each with a different unit to work on. The students could give a presentation based on that unit. The presentations should be around three to four minutes long and involve all members of the group, with everyone having an equal speaking part.

Give the students time to work on their presentations so that they can develop the level of confidence they will need to present well. Monitor their engagement, giving support where they need it. For example, help them to check back through the units or play relevant clips and scenes.

Find out from the students whether they need any props for their presentations and arrange for these to be available. Confirm the order of the presentations.
