Evaluate text

Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 11.04.56 am.pngI can apply a set of criteria to evaluate how successfully the author has achieved their purpose in a range of different text types.


  • Select 6 different texts from slides 7 and 8 of the modelling book.
  • Make sure that you read a variety from the 3 main text types ( Persuasive, Informative and Entertaining)
  • Evaluate each text, filling out the table below to show your thinking.
  • See the modelling book for info on these criteria.

Author’s purpose.
Criteria 1

Criteria 2

Overall how well has the author achieved their purpose.
Example
The three little pigs. The purpose of this text is to entertain the reader.
The story was easy to read and simple to understand. The pictures were bright and colourful and added value to the story. They backed up what was written in the story. The words were simple and easy. The rhyming parts helpe the story to flow
As this was narrative text it is accuracy of information is not important.
The story was the same as Three Little Pig stories I have read before however.
The content of the story was relevant to purpose.
There was plenty of detail in the story to help me get a good image in my mind of what was going on.

Current Events Term 2, 2017

  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.

My Next Step is to continue to  apply the reading and  research skills that I have learned in a variety of other areas.

drama

 In ARTS this term we have been learning to:
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 being quiet because i talk all the time

The two things that I enjoyed the most were:
  1. doing the video

The story that my group told silently was there was 2 police and they took a guy to jail
Overall I think my group worked ( well, together because we enjoyed it

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. You have to have the right spelling

  1. That you had to have your personal requirements


  1. I learnt how to write a C.V.

here is a link of my skills based Curriculum Vitae. C.V.
