The assignment will be graded along the ICT Continuum Outcomes and Outcomes from Grade 10 Physical Education, with attention given to how functional the students' work is to be implemented in a healthy, active community. Add website links, images, or videos, whenever possible. Include fixed "hotspots" and some trails that you know of that suffice for exercise routes. Or: make your own!

3. Podcasting Lesson

3.1. Objectives

3.1.1. From ICT Continuum Affective AS learning OF learning Cognitive Pr-3.2 self-assesses ICT representations to go beyond established criteria by enhancing meaning and/or artistry, according to topic, audience, purpose, and occasion (FORMATIVE) Pr-2.2 revises electronic work to improve organization and clarity, enhance content and artistry, and meet audience needs, according to established criteria, feedback, and personal preferences Pr-1.2 composes text, records sound, sketches images, graphs data, and/or creates video.

3.1.2. From Subject-Specific MB Curriculum (ELA) 4.4.5 Enhance Presentation: Use a variety of modes of expression to present understanding, synthesis of a variety of textual resources, and proof of academic engagement. 2.2.3 Vocabulary: Display proficiency with the vocabulary necessary for cogent, precise, and understandable explanation of textual analysis. 2.3.2 Connect self, texts, and culture: Recognize that a privileged relationship exists between a work of literature and your own experiences in a broader social community. Expand your understanding based on your analysis of this relationship. NECESSITY OF A PODCAST: Speaking is a core element of English Language Arts instruction in Manitoba. While reading is arguably the most important, a student's ability to speak clearly, and with rhetorical strength and focus, is necessary in their achievement of success as a student and as a citizen. In this podcast-based assignment, we can examine speaking as ONLY that...without non-verbal cues and visual stimuli to influence us. What makes a good speech? How do students display higher-level understanding using only their voices? How do they subsequently enhance their verbal skills?

3.1.3. Instructional Strategies Display Exemplars Preliminary Acquisition Activities (powerful rhetoric) (See lesson plan on Blog) Provision of Resources Facilitation of Discussion

3.2. Assessment Strategies

3.2.1. Summative Lit. Review: Criticize how (or how not) a work of CANADIAN POETRY is an accurate representation of Canadian OR Manitoban culture, as you understand it. Students must choose free-verse poetry from a list of provided options to increase the challenge level of their analysis. Podcast form means that students will use the Assessment AS learning strategy to view, criticize, and "grade" the work of their peers according to pre-established criteria. This assignment, using this form, is an optimal way of including student-centred/led assessment in the English Language Arts learning process.

3.2.2. Criteria Content Ideas, Rhetorical Focus, Creativity, Analytical Strength Organization Structure, Layout, Appearance, Quality of Sound Conventions Volume, Pacing, Tone, Grammar, Punctuation

3.2.3. Formative Reflections, during and after work process (AS learning)...see above outcomes from LwICT Continuum Feedback forms for peers

4. Videocasting Lesson

4.1. Objectives

4.1.1. From ICT Continuum Affective S-1.2 relates societal consequences of ethical and unethical use of ICT. S-2.3 analyzes advantages and disadvantages of ICT use in society. (Assessment AS learning: Why is a videocast important for THIS assignment?) Cognitive G-3.2 assesses textual, numerical, aural, and visual information, as well as the sources of the media, to determine context, perspective, bias, and/or motive. R-3.1 self-monitors learning goals, reflects on the value of ICT to complete learning tasks, and sets personal goals for using ICT to learn.

4.1.2. From Subject-Specific MB Curriculum (ELA) 4.4.4 Enhance the Artistry of Communication: Use artistic elements and techniques to create powerful, resonant work with a unique style and voice. (Strong rhetoric and display of understanding). 4.3.1 Share ideas and information: initiate the transfer/sharing of personal knowledge and experience to a wider audience. 2.2.2 Techniques and Elements: Show an understanding of the effects of a variety of textual techniques and elements, particularly COLOUR, SOUND, TEXTURE, DIMENSION, LIGHT, ETC.

4.1.3. NECESSITY FOR VIDEOCAST: Understanding visual influences in text is a core component of English Language Arts Instruction (viewing). By using a videocast, students are able to display a high level of understanding around the visual elements of text, thus moving "beyond the words" to see how literal images influence the rhetoric of authors. This transcends ELA instruction to better connect with the LwICT cognitive domain. Students can subsequently address media influences, particulary visuals, to better understand context, perspective, and bias.
