welcome to gl3000 Welcome to the Level 3 Classical Studies (GL3000) course offered by Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu.

overview of gl3000

Welcome to the Level 3 Classical Studies course. This information booklet is your guide to the whole course. You will need to refer to it for every booklet you study, so: •• read it carefully now before you begin GL3001 •• keep it safe for future reference. The course consists of 16 booklets. The course has booklets covering five topics.

key points

•• There is one introductory booklet to be completed before beginning work on the actual topic. This is GL3001. •• The introductory booklet is followed by booklets covering five topics. Each topic is covered in two or more booklets. •• The Greek vase painting topic (booklets GL3011 and GL3012), and Alexander topic (GL3014, GL3015 and GL3016) are accompanied by a CD-ROM, DVD or CD. You will need access to a computer or a CD player. •• Secondary dual students can download the transcripts off the OTLE site.

The course outline and assessment summary in this guide show in which booklet each of the achievement standard activities occurs and the code, name and number of credits for each achievement standard/unit standard.

getting started how this course is delivered

GL3000 is a print-based course, with course material and supplementary material accessed from the online teaching and learning environment (OTLE). Dual enrolled students are expected to access material from OTLE. Other enrolled students may request printed materials to be posted, accepting there will be a delay between enrolment and receiving the first posting. You will receive an email explaining how to log in to OTLE. This email includes a link to set your password if you have not logged into the OTLE before. You can access OTLE by clicking on www.tekura.school.nz/login. It is recommended that you bookmark this site in your browser. This will take you to a page with links to your courses. Your username and initial password is your Te Kura student ID number. You will be asked to set a new password when you first log in. After that, if you need to reset your password you can click on the ‘Forgot password’ link on the OTLE login page. If you have difficulties logging in, please email: helpdesk.otle@tekura.school.nz

organising your study

Plan a regular time to study. Some people learn best from frequent short sessions while others do better with fewer, longer sessions. It is important to have a plan or a timetable and to keep to it. There is a suggested course plan in the back of this guide to help you plan your programme of study. You may wish to consult with your subject teacher to help you decide on your plan. Getting your study underway is very important. Your first return of work should be two to three weeks after you received your initial work. If you have any issues returning your work within this time, please contact your subject teacher. For more information on how to study successfully, refer to the Student Guide to Years 11–13 (www.tekura.school.nz).

resources you need

You will be sent the booklets listed in the course outline throughout the year as your work is returned by you. Each booklet is divided into at least eight lessons which should take you approximately an hour per lesson.

choosing topics and standards

NZQA advises that a one-year course should lead to 18–20 credits (though you can gain up to 24 credits in this course). You may only wish to study some topics. For example, you may want to do only internal standards for this course. You should look carefully at the course outline and make your choices. It is important to consider how well this will meet your learning goals (such as gaining enough credits to achieve your NCEA Level 3, or whether you are working towards course endorsement, or meeting the entry requirements for your tertiary course or any future study). To be awarded University Entrance you must have: •• NCEA Level 3 •• Three subjects – at Level 3 or above, made up of: –– 14 credits each, in three approved subjects –– In Classical Studies you can do two internal assessments and one external exam –– The three Religious Studies internal standards also give you the opportunity to gain credits towards University Entrance. •• Literacy – 10 credits at Level 2 or above, made up of: –– 5 credits in reading –– 5 credits in writing •• Numeracy – 10 credits at Level 1 or above made up of: –– achievement standards – specified achievement standards available through a range of subjects, or –– unit standards – package of three numeracy unit standards (26623, 26626, 26627 – all three required). To see the list of approved subjects refer to: www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/awards/university-entrance/approved-subjects/ To see the list of standards which count towards University Entrance literacy refer to: www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/awards/university-entrance/literacy-requirementsfor-university-entrance-from-2014/ To see the list of standards which count towards University Entrance numeracy refer to: www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/qualifications/ncea/subjects/literacy-and-numeracy/ level-1-requirements/lit-num-subjects/ You should discuss your options with your learning advisor and/or your teacher.

self-assessment

Many activities are self-marked. You’ll find an Answer guide in each resource. Use these answers to mark your own work and make corrections where necessary. Self-marking is important as it gives you instant feedback on how well you understand the ideas, concepts or information that have been covered.

assessment

Students are required to send in their self-marked and teacher-assessed work. Teachers return student work with feedback and advice in preparation for NCEA internal and external assessments. You will be doing a number of activities which you will mark yourself and practice assessments which your teacher will mark. These are an important part of your learning, but they do not count towards NCEA. In 2015 we are offering three internally assessed Religious Studies standards. By studying your GL3000 courses materials and consulting with your teacher, you can prepare well for these. The internally assessed achievement standards for this course are: •• Achievement Standards 91397, 91398 and 90824. AS9084, AS90826 and AS90827 are from a separate domain. They do not count for University Entrance in Classical Studies. They will be assessed during the year by assessment activities in booklets GL3003 and GL3020. The activity pack contains the criteria you will need to meet to gain achievement, achievement with merit or achievement with excellence. You should read the criteria before you begin your task. To gain credits you must complete all the assessment tasks to the required standard. Please sign the cover sheet to verify that the work is your own. The standard cannot be awarded unless the cover sheet is correctly signed and returned with your work. Externally assessed achievement standards for this course are: •• AS91394 Classical Studies 3.1 •• AS91395 Classical Studies 3.2 •• AS91396 Classical Studies 3.3 External assessment preparation includes: •• a practice examination closely resembling the external examination, which you will be sent towards the end of Term 3 •• practice assessments. The detailed criteria for Achievement Standards are in section 4 of this guide and in the relevant booklets. They can also be found by searching the subject and level in the NCEA part of the NZQA website (www.nzqa.govt.nz) and then finding the relevant standard(s).

time commitment

There are five topics in this course, covered in two to three booklets, as well as four introductory booklets. Each booklet for a topic indicates how many study hours it is likely to require. For example, booklet GL3011 may take approximately 10 hours of work to complete at the normal pace, representing about two weeks of work at five hours per week. If you are to achieve at Excellence level, it is likely that you will have to study substantially more than the suggested guideline. Before deciding on the pace of learning, read through this Course and assessment guide and ask yourself the following: •• How much time can I set aside for study each week? •• Will I be attempting both externally and internally assessed standards? •• Will I be able to keep a steady pace of five hours of study each week? •• Do I intend to sit the external examination at the end of the year? •• Do I need specific external or internal credits for next year’s study or work?

normal pace of learning

As a guide, expect to do at least five hours work per week in this subject. This means completing one to two booklets every two to three weeks, or three to four booklets each term, so that you complete the course before the external examination at the end of the school year.

flexible pace of learning

If you have less than a year because you start later or need to finish earlier, you can decide the pace at which you work. You could still complete the whole course by devoting more time and effort to it. Your teacher can ensure that you receive the resources you need in time to do this.

cover sheets

The back cover of the booklet becomes the cover sheet for your work. Fill it in, sign it and attach it to the front of your work before sending it back to Te Kura. If applicable, your supervisor also signs the cover sheet as part of our authenticity requirements. All students are encouraged to submit as much as possible of their work on line via the OTLE Dropbox. When work requires authentication, students will follow the instructions provided in OTLE.

te kura codes

Your course code is: GL3000. GL is the code for Classical Studies and 3 refers to Level 3. ‘GL’ refers to a resource that covers a particular learning topic in the GL3000 course. ‘GL3003Y1’ refers to the first assessment for an Achievement Standard (91398) for GL3000. ‘AS’ is the code for Achievement Standard.

queries about your work

It is important to contact your teacher if you have any queries about your work. It helps to have your ID number, booklet code (for example, GL3011) and the activity or question number when you contact your teacher, but it is not essential.

scholarship standards

•• Students are able to enter Scholarship for Classical Studies. This is assessed solely by an external examination. •• You are required to answer one essay question from a choice of three on three topics you have studied (that is, you will write three essays, one from each of three topics). •• While the questions would cover the same general areas you have studied, evidence of wider reading is expected. •• Students who enter Scholarship are expected to evaluate critically aspects of the culture of the classical world and also demonstrate analytical perception and both depth and breadth of knowledge. •• Students must also be able to communicate ideas effectively. If you are considering attempting the Scholarship examination in Classical Studies, please contact your teacher for further information.

assessment information standards

GL3000 offers credits from Achievement Standards only which count towards NCEA Level 3. Please refer to our Student Guide to National Certificates or Te Kura and New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) websites for more information about National Certificates of Educational Achievement and assessment: •• www.nzqa.govt.nz •• www.tekura.school.nz

internal assessment

GL3000 offers five Achievement Standards that are internally assessed. Two are in Classics and three are in Religious Studies This means that your teacher sets and marks all assessments that count towards credits gained for these standards. The assessment opportunity for an Achievement Standard is coded ‘Y1’ and if there is a second assessment opportunity offered, this is coded ‘Y2’. For example, GL3003Y1 is the first assessment for AS91396 and GL3003Y2 is the second assessment opportunity.

external assessment

External assessment means that an external examiner marks your assessment work. This will be through the NZQA examinations at the end of the year. You will be able to complete practice assessments and Te Kura practice examinations for external standards.

te kura practice examinations

You should complete the Te Kura practice examinations for any external standards with an end of year examination you have entered. It is important that you complete all practice external assessments and examinations. If for some reason, such as illness, you are unable to sit the NZQA examinations at the end of the year you will only be eligible for consideration for a derived grade (compassionate consideration) if you have completed the Te Kura practice examinations.

resubmissions for internal assessments

If you have made mistakes in your standard assessment activity, your teacher may offer you one resubmission opportunity. This means you have made errors that you are capable of discovering and correcting by yourself. A resubmission allows you to correct your errors and improve your result.

further assessment opportunities for internal assessments For some standards, you may be able to complete a second assessment called a ‘further assessment opportunity’ to improve your results. These standards are indicated in the assessment summary. You should take this opportunity where it is available.

assessment information

authenticity

Authenticity means that students complete and submit work that is their own. When you submit work to Te Kura, you sign an authentication declaration that the work you are submitting is your own work and was done under the required assessment conditions. Where applicable, your supervisor signs to confirm this declaration. When submitting work online via the OTLE Dropbox, if it requires authentication, students must follow the instructions provided in OTLE.

derived grades (compassionate consideration)

If for any unexpected reason you are not able to sit your end of year examination or to submit final work towards an external standard (portfolios or projects), you may be eligible for a derived grade. Please refer to the Student Guide to National Certificates and contact your teacher or learning advisor as soon as possible to find out more should you feel this is necessary.

appeals

You have the right to query an assessment result if you want further clarification or disagree with the result. If you are still not satisfied, you may appeal. Refer to the Student Guide to National Certificates for more information. You can also appeal any other decisions, procedures or policies about assessments. Contact your teacher or learning advisor if you wish to appeal. Further information and a form that students can use to appeal is available on the school’s website in the Student toolkit area (www.tekura.school.nz and go to Student toolkit).

new zealand scholarship

New Zealand Scholarship examinations are designed to extend very high achieving Level 3 NCEA students. Students who wish to enter for the NZ Scholarship examinations must discuss this option with their Te Kura subject teacher. The list of subjects available for NZ Scholarship can be found at: www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/awards/scholarship/scholarship-subjects/

glossary the spelling of greek names

As you read you may notice different ways of spelling the same Greek names. This happens because much of what we know about the Greeks has come down to us through the Romans, who used different letters. For example: •• The Romans replaced the Greek letter k with the letter c; names like Kronos, Herakles, and Alkibiades may be spelt Cronos, Hercules and Alcibiades. •• The Latin ending –us often replaces the Greek –os; you may find Mt Olympos and Dionysos spelt as Mt Olympus and Dionysus. •• Greek ai became ae in Latin, so Hephaistos may be spelt Hephaestus. The Romans had their own names for most of the gods and for some people in Greek myths. When you read a version of a myth by a Roman writer, you may find Zeus is called Jupiter, Hera has become Juno and Odysseus is called Ulysses or Ulixes.
