In 2015, the UN launched the Sustainable Development Goals: find out what they are and why they were devised here.
You will each make a bid to the class to persuade them of the importance of your allocated goal. You should explain why you believe your goal is the most important of the new sustainable development goal and therefore deserves the most funding. You have 2 minutes to explain what your goal means, and why it is so important.
But first, let’s talk about Communication ATLs.
What do you dislike about presenting in front of people?
What factors make a poor presentation?
What makes a good presentation?
What tips do you have to help people with public speaking?
Each one of you will have one specific goal to focus on as they present in front of the class.
-Picking countries with varying levels of development will be easier to compare and contrast, but you are free to pick any 2 countries.
-Look up the following indicators for both countries:
Infant Mortality Rate
GDP per capita
Human Development Index (HDI)
Write a blog post explaining the main differences you have noticed when looking at the indicators above. Can you explain why your two countries have such differences? Are the indicators interrelated? Explain your answer.
If you are done, find a partner and carefully read each-other’s blogposts. Then, comment on their blogs. Give an overall assessment of the reflection by agreeing, disagreeing and asking questions to further the discussion.

Our next unit will be about coastal processes and erosional landforms, leading to another field trip to Kamakura, but this time we will be collecting primary data about theInamuragasaki Beach on November 2nd
Title Page includes the name of the experiment The Effect of Word Order on Memory: The Serial Position Effect centered and then in the lower left hand corner your name, your class and the date of submission on three separate lines
Abstract is written after the experiment and states what you are studying, the aim or purpose of the experiment you are conducting, a brief description of the method, some details about the participants, where the research was conducted, and briefly state your results. (1 paragraph)
Results : Graphs of your results with clear labels and titles, your results must also be clearly stated in written form in this section, including anomalies (2 graphs and a totla of 4 sentences)
Discussion: relates your results to the results of the study you are replicating, you state what your results mean in relation to your hypotheses, you state your conclusion, and how you would improve this study if you were to do it again (2 paragraphs)
Appendix: Include a summary table of raw data in the appendix that you can refer to, as well as all of your calculations (Images of your data tables, with titles and numbers, and all calculations)
You are to take a question about religion and attempt to answer it, demonstrating research skills and an ability to communicate an understanding of multiple points of view.
Here are some example questions.
1) All world religions share the same characteristics? To what extent do you agree with this statement?
2) Analyze the effect of one world religion on one country? (i.e. Analyze has Buddhism affected Japan?)
3) If you want to understand a religion, it is important to understand how they organize their worship space. Citing a least two religions, analyze how the worship space (i.e Church/Mosque) reflects the values of the religion.
4) Evaluate how religion affected art? Use at least two religions in your work.
You will make your own analytical question. Just have it approved by the teacher.
You must create something that has at least 250 written words and a thesis statement. These words do not necessarily have to be in paragraph format, though that is an option.
You must answer the question as it is asked
You must include specific evidence to support your thesis statement. Evidence can be visual or written.
You must show analytical skills (how does the evidence help answer the question)
