Assessment 1 in Teaching (History Method) (Unit of Work)
Assessment 1 in Teaching (History Method) (Unit of Work)Order Description
This Unit of Work is to include an overview plan for a unit, one detailed lesson plan, reference to one diagnostic, one formative and one summative assessment task, a clear orientation to selected curriculum (curriculum document, learning area, learning level), and an overarching justification and illustration of pedagogical and curricular considerations.
Overview plan for the Unit
It is recommended that this Unit has a History 7-10 focus, and uses one of the depth studies as its focus.
In the overview of the unit (Unit Planner) you may wish to refer to the Unit Plan: Industrial Revolution (Sarah Clare) on the LMS your plan should include:
• Either an essential question or the key inquiry question from AusVels
• Use clear learning intentions throughout, for example Sarah use the KUD framework at the start of the unit (What the students will Know, Understand Do) and a learning intention for each lesson or group of lessons.
• Desired results based on AusVels achievement standards for the current, year below and year above.
• The headings used in the sample unit plan are good but feel free to come up with one that best works for you – but remember you will need the kind of detail in the sample plan.
One detailed lesson plan:
The lesson plan should be detailed enough to allow another teacher to follow the plan and deliver a quality outcome. Again I have provided a sample this time for VCE English (the content is not important bit the structure is!). The lesson plan should show exactly what Historical skills and knowledge the students will achieve by the end of the lesson. This would be a good place to put your formative assessment task.
Reference to one diagnostic:
I would prefer this to be diagnostic at the start of the unit to find out what skills and knowledge the students already possess in this study area. We will discuss a range of possible diagnostic skills in the intensive.
One formative and one summative assessment task:
discuss the use of formative assessment with you in the intensive, you may choose one formative assessment task or to use embedded formative assessment whereby you incorporate a number of smaller tasks you use throughout a lesson to check students understanding and thinking and build from there.

Module 1 Assignment
After you finish Module 1, complete this assignment and submit it to your Open
Learning Faculty Member for marking. The assignment has five questions worth 20
marks each, for a total of 100 marks, and counts for 12 per cent toward your final
1. Economists assume that the goal of a firm is to maximize profits.
a. Explain fully how the firm achieves this goal. (10 marks)
b. Why do economists use Economic instead of Accounting profits? (2 marks)
c. Identify and explain FOUR other important goals, in addition to profit
maximization, that firms may pursue? (8 marks)
2. a. Explain how economists use marginal analyses to reach optimal decision
making. Explain how marginal analyses can be used for cost minimization,
revenue maximization and output maximization. (12 marks)
b. Using marginal analyses, explain why the output which maximizes the total
revenue of a firm must exceed the output which maximizes the total profits of
a firm. Provide a single graph of a typical total revenue and a typical total
profit function to illustrate your answer. Be sure to label your axes correctly.
3. a. Explain fully the concept of net present value. Why must firms use net
present value to determine if an investment is profitable? (12 marks)
b. Assume that managers take two years off without pay to complete an MBA.
Use the concepts of opportunity cost and net present value to explain how
you would measure if an MBA is profitable? (8 marks)
4. Given that the total cost function is:
TC = 100Q – Q2 + 1
where Q = rate of output and TC = total cost
a. Determine the marginal and average cost functions. (4 marks)
b. Calculate the output level that minimizes average cost. (8 marks)
c. Calculate the output level that minimizes marginal cost. (8 marks)

5. The demand for widgets (X) is given by:
Px = 160 – 4x
The production of widgets has the following average variable costs:
AVC = 2x – 20
Fixed costs are 162.
Calculate the output level of widgets that: (5 marks each)
a. Maximizes total revenue.
b. Minimizes the average total cost (ATC) of widgets.
c. Minimizes the total cost (TC) of widgets.
d. Maximizes profits.
