Demonstrating evidence You need to provide 3 pieces of ‘Knows-how’ & 3 pieces of ‘Shows-how’ evidence for each element of each of the 10 Principles You can use the same pieces of evidence multiple times! There are some key texts… Groups of 2-4, for next 10mins pick one principle & brain-storm what know-how & shows-how evidence you could use for each of the elements Feedback…Questions…?
