    Sharing and Presenting Information Stage (by the end of Grade 6)

    Students should have many opportunities to share what they have learned, discovered, and created. They should be able to identify the requirements of different forms of presentation.They will need to consider the nature of the audience, and select a form and style of presentation appropriate to that audience and the content of the material included in their completed products.

    Students will need time and assistance to prepare for sharing and presenting their products. This could involve:

    • mini-lessons in using new technologies or other techniques for presentation
    • establish criteria for participation during presentations (such as speaking clearly and audibly, or listening purposefully, and offering positive, helpful comments)

    Time(s) for presentations should be allocated fairly with students knowing in advance when and where they are expected to share their products. This should be done in a positive manner with students developing a sense of pride, rather than fear or disinterest in displaying or performing what they have learned. Students will also need adequate time following their presentations and sharing (including the publishing and sharing of written products) to examine carefully the responses of audiences to their work. The practice of simply "handing in" written (or other) products to the teacher, without opportunities for sharing what they have learned with their peers or with others who are interested, should be avoided. Much will be learned if adequate, and carefully structured opportunities are included for this important part of the Information Process. The Collections 5 program Learning Strategy: Presenting Information is certainly recommended.
