Elections

WALT: Write an effective argument for our chosen political party.
Who are you going to vote for? Personally I think should win is labor because i think they are trying to make it better not like some other parties . Here are  three policies that I would vote for: this means that the country will be healthy means that the health industry will be payed more  
this means that people can afford to go to the doctors. the first thing i'm going to talk about is Implement a plan to reduce childhood obesity

My first policy i'm going to talk about is :
Implement a plan to reduce childhood obesity This means that the country will be healthy This is a good policy because children will be healthy Another important policy is Increase health funding by 8 billon over four years .

My second policy i'm going to talk about is :
Increase health funding by 8 billon over four years This means that the health industry will be payed more  This policy is good because doctors will be payed more This policy is also good because we will get better medicine Another important policy is reduce doctor fees by 10$ .

My third policy i'm going to talk about is:  
Reduce doctor fees by 10$ this means that people can afford to go to the doctors this is a good policy because poor people can go to the doctors at a cheaper rate This is a good policy because it’s more affordable .

Now, that I have Explained some of Greens policies, can you now see that Green is the best party to vote for. They should win because they better policies for health and education I have talk about health policies:  childhood obesity,  doctor fees and health funding. Who are you going to vote for ?

Term 2 Novel Study

Blog Title: Term 2 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel … Castaway .

I found this novel ok  because I did not think it was that great because it was boring until the end and then it got better .

During the novel I had to complete a thinking map which shows that I can classify how the author has shown the theme of the book.

National Standard this covers (delete the ones that do not apply to you.)

  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • I can identify and evaluate the way writers’ use language and ideas to suit their purpose and I can use my growing wide range of academic and content-specific vocabulary to understand texts.
Overall I would give this novel a rating of  4 -10 ( insert your rating here) and would not  recommend it to others to read because I did not think that it was that interesting but it depends what they are into because I am not that person .

Drama



In ARTS this term we have been learning to: Make a role .
Select and use techniques and relevant technologies to develop drama practice.
Here is a link to our online modelling book.

  • During this unit of learning we:
  • Described the characteristics of silent performances.
  • Identified different techniques used in silent performances.
  • Used these techniques in a variety of different practice situations.
  • Worked in a small group to put together our own silent performance.

The most challenging part of this unit of learning was trying to make one up because it hard to think of one .

The two things that I enjoyed the most were:
1 running around .
2 learning how to make one .

The story that my group told silently was didn't do one .

Overall I think my group worked not so well because we did not do one .

Current Events Term 2, 2017

WALT: I can successfully research a current event.
Here is a link to our online modelling book for this unit of learning.

The National Standard that I have been aiming for during this unit of learning is:

Year7/8: I can use appropriate skills and technologies to find and use a range of texts for specific purposes.

Each week we have read a short text about a current event/ topic. We then formed questions based on what we had read.  After this we researched the answers to our questions and finally we gave our opinions on what we had found out.

Here is some evidence of my learning.
Describe Map One One of them.
Describe map Two Secon one

My Next Step is to continue to  apply the reading and  research skills that I have learned in a variety of other areas. To try make them more interesting because it will look better .

Careers Education C.V. Writing

In CAREERS EDUCATION we have been learning to write a skills based Curriculum Vitae.

A skills based C.V. focuses more on the skills that we have,  rather than our work history.

Here is a link to our online Modelling Book that shows the process we have followed.

Three things that I have learned about writing a Curriculum Vitae are:

  1. its easier to use bullet points.

  1. that you write what you do outside of work.

  1. spaced evenly

Here is a link to my Skills based Curriculum Vitae.
