Student Reflections: ___Before this assesment I knew little about incas besides

that they were from peru so I did learn a lot.The library periods were good
because I got a lot of information from books and since lachlan and I were
both doing incas we traded notes.I tried to work for atleast 10 minutes each
day whever that be reasherchig or changing the reascherch into my own
words. I choose the presnataion format because it was easy to use and looks
professinal. Some of the problems I accounted were quite weird for exaample
it glitched and all my photos tunred to pictures of vincent I dont know how.
Also some of my pages I created I accadenlty put as blog pages which are
different because you can only put little text into o the side, I fixed this
however by deleting it and making another page but with the proper
formatting. Also it was very hardto export the mindmap and reasgrch in the
web site but I fixed tht by just playing around with it and exportiing it into text

then pdf but you couldnt just drag it in you had actually click instert document
and then fid it that
way.__________________________________________________________

Your task:

Choose a civilisation of your choice (this choice must be made in consultation with your
teacher), and create an informative and interesting website which addresses the statement of
inquiry:
Civilisations have developed over time and across space evolving into modern day societies.
Create a mind map or a graphic organiser that will show your planning and research, or other as
approved by your teacher. This needs to be handed in as it will be assessed under Criterion B
Investigating
Your website should include accurate terminology, facts and examples to help answer the
statement of inquiry, as well as appropriate images/music and hyperlinks. Website design options
will be discussed with your teacher.
You must source all the resources used in a bibliography (APA format) included in your website
The target audience for this webpage is a Year 9 student
As part of Criterion B, you will be required to reflect on your investigation process. Your teachers will
guide you through this. This needs to be included as a section/tab on your website.

Part 1

d. What happened if people were sick ~ what was medicine and medical knowledge like at this time?
e. Who healed sick people and who attended births and deaths?
f. What was the infant mortality rate like and their expected lifespan?

C. Social Organisation
Describe and explain how your civilisation was governed and how work was done. For example:
a. How were decisions made, who made them and how did they get to their position of power?
b. How was power distributed? Did men and women have equal rights and responsibilities?

civilization defend itself?
d. What link was there between their religious beliefs and their rulers?
e. How was knowledge passed on to children? Did they go to school?

Part 2
Using your research from Part 1, create another page/section on your website to compare and contrast
modern society with the civilisation of your choice. This will involve anaylsing the similarities and differences.
You need to discuss this under your two chosen aspects from Part 1.
Remember to justify your statements
