After students have analyzed their assigned documents, invite teams to share the evidence they have collected from their documents. Ask each team to reach a consensus decision about whether or not they have reservations about recommending Douglas for knighthood. Distribute copies of activity sheet, #12 Rating Douglas’s Worthiness to each student. Ask students to rate Douglas’ worthiness on each of three criteria and to provide an overall assessment of his behaviour based the evidence from their assigned case study.
Before embarking on the activity, review with students the rubric, #13 Assessing the Evidence, to highlight the need to identify accurate and relevant evidence and to offer plausible ratings. If desired, after completion of the activity arrange for students to assess their own or each others’ ratings and justifications.
