Formative assessment shall help to promote learning and develop competence in the subject. The pupils demonstrate and develop their competence in Social Studies during year 1 and 2 when they explore and develop their sense of wonder when studying topics within the social studies field and reflect on how these topics are interconnected. The pupils demonstrate and develop their competence in the subject when they work to learn more and experience that knowledge can be obtained in different ways. The pupils demonstrate and develop their competence when they experience and see themselves and others as part of a diversified society, and when they experience what it means to participate and have influence. The pupils use digital tools to demonstrate and develop their competence in the subject and are beginning to learn to judge digital sources by noting some of the opportunities and challenges relating to digital interaction.
The teacher shall facilitate for pupil participation and stimulate their desire to learn in social studies by giving them the opportunity to explore, talk about and develop their sense of wonder. The teacher and pupils shall engage in dialogue about their development in Social Studies. The pupils shall be encouraged to experiment on their own in the subject. With the competence the pupils have demonstrated as the starting point, they shall be given the opportunity to express what they believe they have achieved and what they believe they have improved on. The teacher shall provide guidance on further learning and adapt the teaching to enable the pupils to use the guidance provided to develop their competence in social studies through their curiosity and by increasing their knowledge.
