Over the next few weeks you are going to be carry out a personal inquiry on

an aspect on WAR you would like to discover more about. You need to choose
an aspect or question that you are quite passionate about so the process is
interesting for you.

You will be following the inquiry process by:
Asking questions
Retrieving information
Processing this information into your own words
Presenting your information to Share with others
Evaluating your effort and achievement.

Below is a chart that gives you information about what you MUST, SHOULD
and COULD include in your project. Once you have completed your tasks you
will need to hand in your project for your teacher to mark by the given
deadline.

We expect every student to complete all the MUST tasks to the best of their
ability. The additional tasks (SHOULDS and COULDS) are optional but your
teacher will be discussing with you what they expect are suitable tasks for
you to extend yourself. The more effort you put in, the better chances of you
achieving a higher grade!

Over the next few weeks a number of lessons will be offered to you to assist
you in completing a task. It is up to you to enrol in these lessons so you have
a good understanding of what is expected. You will also have independent
time where you can complete tasks without teacher support. It is also
expected that you will be working on this project at home. It will be
important that you manage your time wisely so you can meet your
deadlines.

In this booklet you will find detailed information about each element or task
and there are also a few examples to help guide you.
