This task was set as summer homework for students beginning the AS Biology course the following September (2011). (See actual task set) The aim was to stimulate the students to independently research the structure and function of the organelles within a eukaryotic (plant or animal) cell (a topic which they would be studying in Year 12). Students had to create a poster which would accompany a presentation. This task was designed so that students could demonstrate their ability to research information and present it in a way that was their own, giving students freedom of expression. Assessment was based on accuracy of the information and clarity of presentation of both the poster and the actual presentation delivered to the rest of the class.
