Scoring Rubric

The presentation style that students adopt can include a variety of methods from PowerPoint presentations through overheads or a simple written report with a poster defining their findings. Students should be made aware that there is a final exam for this unit based on web research and that note taking whilst researching the links would be a very good thing!
