Element Project Exemplars

Dear Parents,

In class today, your students will be getting their element projects back. We will also be reviewing them together, looking for strengths and weaknesses.

Below, you can find three documents. The first is a set of exemplars that show A level work. We used these in class today for students to compare their own work against. The second is an example of a task that earned a 100. I include it largely because I’m often asked by kids why they don’t earn higher than 95s on their reflections/conclusions. The third is a list of the common mistakes that students made on their elements projects. Your kids used this document in class today to evaluate their own work.

Remember that students can earn 3 additional points on their tasks by writing a paragraph explaining why they earned the score that they earned on these tasks. These documents will be useful for any student planning on tackling these tasks.

Hope this helps,
Bill Ferriter
