Comment [SR2]: Found question to


be a good starting point to introduce to
students. Follow up question once
discussed was how are they
responsible?
Comment [SR3]: This Unit was aimed
to develop students knowledge of a
global issue and a possible challenge
that they will have in their lifetime.
These issues were explored from a
Christian perspective. Students were
challenged to look at these global
issues and come up with possible
solutions for positive change based on
the idea that Christians are Stewards of
Gods creations.
Comment [SR4]: Students found the
concept of Stewardship an easy
concept to understand. They already
had some understanding with issues
like Global Warming. Students were
engaged as they found that they could
find solutions to solve some of the
issues facing the environment. They
recognised and could see action a
steward could take.
Comment [SR6]: Students knew
Genesis story which helped when
analysing and interpreting the creation
story. Technology was a major help in
engaging students needs/interests.
Used some students who often find it
hard to engage in CS lessons as tech
experts. Students found theological
concepts easy to understand and
discuss. They also could identify ways
they could act as stewards.
Comment [SR5]: This CS unit was
done in conjunction with an Integrated
studies unit. The unit was based on
Sustainability. All the resources and
activities were able to be linked to this
CS unit and vice versa. This enabled a
more in depth and detailed investigation
of the topic

Comment [SR7]: Focused on these


key knowledge areas to drive lessons
and assessment task. Spent time
making sure students new the creation
story and the key message that we do
not have control over Gods creations
rather we are to protect it. These areas
were easy for students to access and
discuss. Students did need some time
to work through how we can take and
be responsible for Gods creations.

Comment [SR8]: Found the


assessment task to be a good reflection
of the key indicators listed above.
Students really enjoyed creating the
musical montage and were engaged
throughout the task. The task allowed
for students at varying levels of ability
to access the task in small groups. At
the end the students were able to view
other students works which allowed for
a good reflection the following lesson.

The creation story familiarisation


Share the Genesis 1 story of creation with the
students.
Watch the following YouTube clips about creation
students are to make notes to indicate what
was created on each day:
Individually students will create an aspect of one
day of creation, demonstrating their
understanding e.g the 5th day they may create a
rabbit or horse, for the 3rd day they may create a
star or sun. These aspects will be stuck to a
background to create a series of posters
demonstrating creation. These posters will be
placed in order and displayed in the classroom.

Gods creation is
for all people
past, present
and future.

TuningIn

God calls us to be stewards of creation what


are stewards. Genesis 1 Now we will make
humans, and they will be like us. We will let them
rule the fish, the birds and all other living
creatures. Watch the YouTube clip - about
stewardship. After hearing the bible passage and
watching the YouTube clip what do students
think stewardship is? What do we do around our
own house that demonstrates our role as a
steward of creation; what could we do? Students
are to write an acrostic poem using the word
stewardship. They will choose a colour to write
the existing things they do in and another colour
to write the things they could do.

Gods creation is
for all people
past, present
and future.
God wants
humans to enjoy
the world and to
take charge of
the world and
look after it.

Comment [SR9]: Aimed to


incorporate a range of digital and
printed resources for this task. Showing
students examples of musical
montages allowed them to see a
successful project. In order to be
successful a teacher would need to
understand the Genesis story and what
a Steward is. A teacher should also
understand the challenges facing
people in the world in regards to the
environment. This unit was
considerably helped by doing this in
conjunction with our integrated studies
unit. This allowed for a greater
knowledge when delivering this unit.
Comment [SR10]: Lessons built upon
student knowledge and allowed them to
demonstrate their learning in a variety
of different ways including creative,
visual, written and spoken responses.

Assessment Students will work in pairs to


create a clip that promotes the role of
stewardship. They will need to consider
Gods calling, the beauty of the Earth, how
humans are currently treating it etc. These
clips will be made using PowerPoint and
showed to the class upon completion.

humans to enjoy

Watch the YouTube clip Students will use De Bonos hats to assess their
role as stewards of creation what is positive
about this role; problems with this role; what new
ideas can we bring to this role; what information
do we have about this role; and how do we feel
about being assigned with this role.

rubric.

Comment [SR11]: Tasks were not all


equal in length, time or in value. Some
were used to gage student
understandings, develop questioning,
problem solve. Majority of time was
allocated to the assessment task and
allowing students to explore their own
understandings, problem solve and
construct their knowledge in a creative
manner. Not as much time was needed
for expanding upon key problems/ideas
as we explored many of these issues in
our Sustainability unit in Integrated
Studies.

Students will be
allocated a
montage to view
and give directed
feedback for.

Comment [SR12]: Assessment task


allowed students to produce a creative
piece of work in combination with
research allowing for a wide range of
student abilities, interests and passions
to access the content. The assessment
rubric allowed students a clear outline
of what was involved in completing the
task and how they can improve their
own work by self-assessing and
assessing a peers work. Students were
all given the opportunity to record 3
things that worked well in their project
and 1 area they could improve on once
they had competed the task.
