Within this theme, you will cover aspects of daily life such as family relationships, travel preparations, hobbies and sports. Other topics include houses and furnishings, senior high school life and travelling by bullet train. Overall, there are approximately 60 kanji characters to learn. You will cover up to Level 6 of the Japanese curriculum. This course follows Level 6 of the Learning Languages in the New Zealand Curriculum. The course prepares you to gain 19 credits for your NCEA. You can gain nine credits from the internally assessed activities in this course. The rest of the credits come from externally assessed activities.

getting started information how this course is delivered

JP1000 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

for students who attend another school (secondary dual students)

You will need internet access when you do your Japanese. You will find your course on OTLE (the Te Kura online teacher and learning environment). On OTLE you will find: •• your booklet (and its workbook and the audio files) to work through •• reference material such as the Level 1 NCEA vocab list, grammar summary and kanji cards •• internal assessment tasks. The booklets, workbooks, reference material and internal assessment tasks are PDF files. You will be posted the NCEA Level 1 Kanji cards.

what to send to your te kura japanese teacher •• The activities you have done in the workbook. Either post the workbook to your teacher or scan it and email it to them. •• Your spoken recording. Burn a CD or email an audio file to your teacher.

how to send your work to your te kura teacher

You can either post or email your work or put your work into the drop box in OTLE.

posting Please put your name and the booklet code (for example, JP1002) on your work. Your supervisor will have one of your Te Kura address labels to stick on your work.

getting started information

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 planner in the back of this guide for you to 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 first 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.

te kura codes

Your course code is JP1000. JP is the code for Japanese and 1 refers to level 1. ‘JP’ refers to a booklet that covers a particular learning topic in the JP1000 course. ‘JP1009Y1’ refers to the first assessment for an Achievement Standard (AS90894). ‘AS’ is the code for Achievement Standard.

resources you need to get going You will need:

•• Te Kura booklets, supplements, assessments and audio CDs •• a CD player or computer that can play audio CDs •• a computer with internet and email access •• a way of recording your Japanese speaking for your teacher. Ways you can record your spoken Japanese for your teacher: Record on your computer hard drive, and either burn a CD to send with your written work, or email your recording to your teacher at Te Kura. NZQA no longer accepts cassette tapes, so spoken work for Achievement Standards must be sent to Te Kura in digital form, such as an .mp3 or .wav format.

self-assessment

Many assessment activities are self-marked. You’ll find the Answer guide towards the back of each booklet. Use these answers to mark your own work and make corrections where necessary. Self-marking is very 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 activities as well as their internal or practice external assessments. Your teacher will go over your work, and send it back to you with feedback and feed forward.

getting started information

Internal assessments for this course are: •• portfolio writing – you write a variety of different types of Japanese texts •• spoken presentation – you plan, prepare and practise a spoken presentation and then record it. The detailed criteria for Achievement and Unit Standards will be given 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). If there are two assessment opportunities, one is called ‘Y1’ for an Achievement Standard and the other is called ‘Y2’. For example JP1009Y1 is one assessment for AS90894 and there is a further assessment opportunity in JP1009Y2. AS90897 is the portfolio writing Achievement Standard. You write a number of different texts as you work through your booklets. You then choose which ones you would like to include for your portfolio, and let your teacher know. There is no further assessment opportunity for this Achievement Standard. External assessment preparation includes: •• working through your booklets to develop your listening and reading skills •• Te Kura practice examinations.

time commitment

There are 12 booklets in this course. Each one is likely to take about 10 hours to complete. 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 able to keep a steady pace of five hours of study each week? •• What do I want to do next year? How many credits will I need to do this? •• Will I be doing externally and internally assessed standards? •• Will I be prepared to sit the external examination at the end of the year? •• Will I need specific external or internal credits as a prerequisite for next year’s study or work?

normal pace of learning

As a guide, expect to do at least five hours work per week. Allow four hours a week for working through the booklets, and one hour a week for revision. This means completing at least three booklets each term so that you complete the course before the external examinations at the end of the school year.

flexible pace of learning

If you have less than a year to complete this course 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.

getting started information

choosing topics and standards

You may wish to do only some topics. For example, you may only want to do internal standards in this course. You need to discuss this with your Japanese teacher at Te Kura. You should consider how well this will meet your learning goals and whether it will meet the specific course entry requirements for tertiary institutions or any future study and whether you will be able to gain enough credits to achieve your NCEA. To be awarded NCEA Level 1, you will need to gain a minimum of 80 credits at Level 1 (or above) including the 10 credits for literacy and the 10 credits for numeracy. A list of achievement standards from levels 1, 2 and 3 that count towards Level 1 literacy and numeracy can be accessed from: www.nzqa.govt.nz/about-us/our-role/legislation/nzqa-rules/secondary-schools-supportinginformation/level-1-literacy-and-numeracy-requirements/

cover sheets

There is a cover sheet at the back of the work you send to your teacher. Fill it in and sign it before sending it back to Te Kura. Your supervisor also signs this sheet as part of our authenticity requirements (if applicable). All students are encouraged to submit as much as possible of their work online via the OTLE Dropbox. When work requires authentication, students will follow the instructions provided in OTLE.

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, JP1002) and the activity or question number when you contact your teacher, but it is not essential.

how to get the best from the course booklets

The booklets are yours to keep, so you can be really active about using them – make notes, highlight things you want to remember, or write corrections to your answers on the page so that you can learn from your mistakes.

audio files

Listen to the audio files as many times as you want. If you do not understand something for the first time, go over it until you do. Almost all the Japanese you hear is spoken by a Japanese speaker, so the more you listen and use it as a model for practising aloud, the more your brain will absorb and remember – the sounds, the rhythm and the tune of real Japanese. You will need a quiet room where you can listen to the audio files and practise speaking out loud.

checking

You will check most of your own work in the section at the back of the booklet. This gives you immediate feedback so that you can learn from your mistakes. It is important that you do this carefully. Compare your answers with the model answers. If your answers are different, go back to your booklet and go over the explanations so you know where you went wrong and how to improve. If you are still unsure after doing this, ask your teacher for help.

revision

When you are speaking or writing a foreign language, you can only use what you can remember, so it’s important to learn as you go and revise frequently – daily, weekly, monthly.

Note: A dictionary is completely optional. If you wish to buy an English to Japanese dictionary, make sure you buy one that goes from English to roomaji (English letters). Do not buy one that goes from English to Japanese script, as the Japanese words will be written in kanji, which you do not know how to read.

assessment tasks

The self-assessments are contained in the booklets. The answers will be towards the back of the booklets. Your writing portfolio internal assessments are included in your writing portfolio pack (JP1000W). You should complete each booklet with the same code, before you do the corresponding Y1 assessment. For example, you need to do booklet JP1002 before you do the JP1002Y1 writing task. Send in each writing assessment as soon as you have finished it. Your teacher will send you feedback. The other internal assessment is JP1009Y1. You will be sent that later in the course. It is the assessment for the spoken presentation Achievement Standard. Your spoken presentation needs to be done under your school’s supervision. It will have to be delivered to us in a digital format. You are encouraged to video your spoken presentation. The file needs to be compatible with Windows media player or a vlc player. For audio, we accept .mp3 or .wav files. You can email your digital files to your teacher or burn them onto a CD and send the CD in with the rest of your written work.

assessment information standards

The National Qualifications Framework has two types of national standards: Achievement and Unit Standards. Credits from both Achievement Standards and Unit Standards count towards NCEA. Please refer to our Student Guide to National Certificates or Te Kura (www.tekura.school.nz) and NZQA websites (www.nzqa.govt.nz) for more information about National Certificates of Educational Achievement, and assessments.

internal assessment

There are two internally assessed Achievement Standards in this course. There are no Unit Standards.

external assessment

External assessment means that someone outside the school marks your work. This is through NZQA examinations at the end of the year. You will practise for the external standards as you work through your booklets and sit the Te Kura practice examination.

te kura practice examinations

It is important that you complete the Te Kura practice examinations for any external standards you have entered. If for some reason, such as illness, you are unable to sit the examinations in November you will only be eligible for consideration for a derived grade (compassionate consideration) if you have completed the practice examinations.

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 course outline. You should take this opportunity where it is available.

resubmissions

If you have made a small mistake in your assessment, your teacher may offer you a resubmission. This means you have made an error that you are capable of discovering and correcting by yourself. A resubmission allows you to improve your result.

authenticity

Authenticity means 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. Your supervisor signs this declaration to confirm this (where applicable). When submitting work online via the OTLE Dropbox, if it requires authentication, students must follow the instructions provided in OTLE.

assessment information

derived grades (compassionate consideration)

If for any unexpected reason you are not able to sit your end of year NZQA examination, you may be eligible for a derived grade. Please refer to the Student Guide to National Certificates and contact your own school 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 if you wish to appeal. More information and a form that students can use to appeal is available on the Te Kura website in the student toolkit area (www. tekura.school.nz and go to ‘Student Toolkit’).
