Justifying a Decision Based on Characteristics
This program is underpinned by Marion Blank’s Model of Classroom Language. The activities presented in this program involve more complex verbal ideas and are based on Blank’s model. For your child to be able to succeed with these tasks, he will need to extend beyond what can be immediately seen or perceived. He will need to reason and make decisions based on the attributes of objects, considering possibilities which may not be immediately obvious, reflecting on previous experiences and information. He will be required to use this information to reason and respond.
