Year 10 Research“Aotearoa”

3 credits

Achievement Standard 1.9


Your task

Your task:

  • This activity requires you to research an aspect of living in Aotearoa / New Zealand. You will set a number of research questions and draw conclusions from collected information.

  • Before beginning your own research, you will work through key stages of the research process as a class. During this stage your teacher will show you how to plan, record and present your research. You will then research and present information on a topic you have chosen.

    You will be assessed on how well you:

  • propose research questions

  • select and record relevant information

  • organise and present information

  • draw conclusions.


Introduction

Introduction

  • Some of us are part of families that have lived in Aotearoa for a very long time. Others of us have moved here only recently. Whoever we are and however long we have been in Aotearoa, there are many things which we regard as special or relevant to living here.

  • A particular aspect of living in Aotearoa will be the focus for your research. The texts you read, the people and the places you know and the activities you are involved in are all rich sources of information for your research.

    What aspect of living in Aotearoa / New Zealand are you going to research? Some

    possible ideas for topics are:

  • an important issue or challenge for New Zealand

  • the influence or contribution of a New Zealander

  • an important aspect of growing up or living here

  • a New Zealand place / turangawaewae or place where you feel at home

  • your whakapapa or family background

  • the significance and history of a cultural practice

Brainstorming topic ideas

Brainstorming topic ideas

  • Place = Hastings, Napier, Flaxmere, Wellington, sky tower, Rainbow’s End, Mahia, Beehive, Paeroa, Mangatanoka, Mt Ruapehu, Hamner Springs, Lake Taupo, Waiuru War museum, Big Kiwi, Te Papa, Eketahuna, Rotorua, Waimarama, Nelson, Haumoana, Auckland, Camp Kaitawa.

  • Family background

  • The significance and history of a cultural practice = tatoos, religion, traditions (unique to NZ), Waitangi Day, Napier earthquake, haka.


Looking at exemplars

Looking at exemplars

  • Put yourself into a group of 4

  • Allocate a number to each person in the group

  • 1 = N, 2 = A, 3 = M, 4 = E

  • You will be given some research exemplars in your group. Try to decide what grade each would be (there is an example of each grade). Check with me when you think you know!

  • For your chosen grade (depending on the number you’ve been allocated), answer the following questions:

  • What is the research topic?

  • What are the key questions?

  • What do you think it has done well?

  • What do you think it needs to do better?

  • Once each member in your group has answered the above questions, get back together and discuss each of the exemplars. You are now ‘the expert’ on your allocated grade and exemplar!


So what are key questions

So what are key questions?

  • A research report sets out information and conclusions linked to research questions which the student has developed to guide their research. A common report layout is to set out each major section of the report headed by a research question.

  • SO before you even begin researching, you need to develop THREE key questions. The purpose of your report is to answer the three questions and make judgements on your findings. Your questions MUST enable you to make conclusive judgements.

  • Who, what, where, when, why & how (5 w & h)

  • MUST be open NOT closed

  • MUST be able to find information in order to answer key questions

  • MUST be able to offer your own opinion and make some conclusions based on the information that you find.


So what should i think about when writing my key questions

So what should I think about when writing my key questions?

  • What do you want to find out about your topic?

  • What part of it interests you the most?

  • How are you going to find information to answer your question?

  • What do YOU think about your chosen question? How would you answer it? What are YOUR opinions?

  • Do they link well to your topic and make sense?


What does a sources page mean

What does a ‘sources page’ mean?

  • A sources page is used for EVERY source you look at with regards to your research topic. For example, if you look at a non-fiction book, you will write up a sources pages on how the information you looked at relates back to your key questions. You would do the same for an internet website, for an interview, for a brochure…for EVERYTHING you use!


What does a sources page look like

What does a sources page look like?

Source: ‘1970s in New Zealand / Timeline of New Zealand history’ (website)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/

Information related to research questions:

  • 1970: Loxene Golden Disc winner: Craig Scott – ‘Let’s Get A Little Sentimental’

  • 1971: Loxene Golden Disc winner: Craig Scott – ‘Smiley’

  • 1973: Population reaches 3 million.

  • 1973: Colour TV broadcasts start.

  • 1974: ‘Happen In’ TV music show first broadcast.

  • 1974: 21 Sept. Voting age lowered from 20 to 18. The New Zealand Herald “youth is ready and willing to shoulder responsibilities greater than it has done ever before.”

  • 1975: Second TV channel starts broadcasting.

  • 1978: Registered unemployed reaches 25,000.

  • Source: ‘20th Century Fashion: The 70s’ (book)

  • Author: Sarah Gilmour

  • Date of Publication: 1999

  • Information related to research questions:

  • Idea of the capsule wardrobe was brought in. This was the woman’s wardrobe which only consisted of the basics: jackets, knee-length skirts, slim-cut trousers and blouses. Having the basics meant women could mix and match to make many different outfits.

  • High unemployment on the 1970s meant many people couldn’t spend as much on fashion.

  • Dressing down came more important than dressing up.

Outlines publisher details – title, author, date of publication

Bullet points show how the information in the source relates to the key questions.


Don t like this layout for sources

Don’t like this layout for sources?

There is another option…


Data chart same thing as sources pages but in a handy table format

Data Chart (same thing as sources pages but in a handy table format!)


Choose the one that works best for you

Choose the one that works best for you!

Remember, without sources pages your report is not complete…you MUST show the research process!


The report itself will be structured like this

The report itself will be structured like this:

Introduction – outline interest in topic & 3 key questions

SO…it is very similar to writing an essay. The ONLY difference will be that you will probably have more than 5 paragraphs (e.g. each body paragraphs might be 2 or 3 paragraphs long) AND the main objective of the report is to convincingly answer your key questions.

First key question answered. Conclusions made.

Second key question answered. Conclusions made.

Third key question answered. Conclusions made.

Conclusion. Sum up ideas.
