Summative assessment – It’s show time!!

Summative assessment – It’s show time!!

Dear Parents,

It’s time to collaborate!

You as parents and we as teachers have effectively collaborated to bring out the best in our learners. As we are approaching the end of our ongoing unit, learners will showcase their understanding of the current unit, Conflict, as a part of their summative assessment. They have analyzed various conflicts through the course of the unit and now, with great vigor, they are ready to present their research findings.

We cordially invite you to come and witness the young learners demonstrate their analysis of the various conflicts that they have researched on, as a part of the unit ‘Sharing the planet’, on 6th September 2018.

Parents know their children the best and there is no one better than a parent to observe and report what they are doing. With this thought in mind, we have planned a parent assessment wherein you will be expected to assess your child during the presentation.
