Thank you Ma’am: Response to text

Task Description:

Today for literacy, we had to finish off our reading tasks for this week. And for this first slide we had to kind of think about what the woman in the photo’s personality was, By the expression on her face I found it kind of hard to find her emotions. But I think I found some type of information about her personality, On the second slide for the second question I had to answer “What is Roger’s internal conflict?” This question was asked based of the scene of what was going on in the story, I thought it was because he didn’t know whether to run out the door or to listen to what Mrs. Jones said to do. For the rest of the slides I had to answer about the boys personality and his background, what I thought the main message of the story was and a video of me and my partner discussing why I thought that was the main message of the author and you should click on the video to find out more. (On the last slide)

Thank you ma’am – Word Associations Activity

Task Description:

For this task, I had to match words from this Word Bank and put reasons as to why I think that word had belong to the other word. I did the easier ones first because I thought if I started with the easier ones that the harder ones won’t be hard to find. For example, Barren and Frail both sounded that they belong to both Dessert and Elderly.

New Vocabulary

Task Description:

For this reading task, I had to find the meaning of words and put them into a sentence, I found this very difficult to do because I hardly knew any of the words that were on the task to do. My highlight for this task was I guess getting to know new vocabulary since this was the main goal for this task and my low light was probably trying to understand it’s meaning and come up with my own sentence with that new word in it. I hope to work on more new vocab so I can probably use it instead of the same words I usually use every day.

Barriers to education

Task Description:

For this reading task, I had to read a text about things that block young students from education. I found some interesting information while reading the text, I knew about a few from the text but having to know that there was about more than eight barriers to education was quite surprising. After I had finished reading the text I had to answer these few questions on these slides. Some of these questions were directly to me about why I thought this or why I thought that, and the last slide was basically asking which of the barriers to education I thought was the most saddening to hear about or which was unfair and then I had to explain it. The last question on the last slide was for me to imagine I was a principal of a school, and what I would do to ensure that my school is a place where both genders can attend knowing that they care safe and cared for. I had to really think about this question like all the questions and go into depth about it. One thing I liked about this task was the text because it told me many things I really didn’t know about. Which was really surprising to know. The WALT for this task was to analyse authors values,attitudes and beliefs, and to find,select and use a range of texts suited to the learning purpose.

Skiing in Afghanistan 2

Task Description:

For last weeks literacy session, we had to do another slide about the story we read. If you want to know what story, it’s the front of this cover on the slides in front of you right now. Anyways, we had to answer more difficult type questions about the text, we had to dig deep into the story because we had to answer what we thought the Author’s message was. I’m pretty sure this whole slide was questions about the author and their experiences there. My highlight for this task was that I got to imagine the things that were happening in Afghanistan while reading the text, and how the author managed to go to Afghanistan despite the dangers. The WALT for this task was to Analyse authors values, attitudes and beliefs.

Skiing in Afghanistan

Task Description:

During literacy last week, we had to read and complete this task. The name of the story we read was “Skiing in Afghanistan” By Neil Silverwood. We had to answer some comprehension questions after we had read the text, this whole presentation was just asking us about the text overall, but we really had to dig deep about the information that was being giving from the text to answer these questions. The highlight I found from this task was that I learnt things about my friends country, which I never knew about, and the low light for this task was having to read a very long text. Though I’ve read longer so this text didn’t really bother me, our WALT for this task was analyse the authors values, attitudes and beliefs.

Gender Roles Cartoon

Task Description: This literacy task was very short to do, and what we had to do for it, was we had to look at this picture you see on the slides. And we had to kind of see the story in it, then we had to answer the questions on the second page about what we saw in the picture. This is what I think about the photo and why.

Which would You? – Dawn Raid part 4

Task Description:

I did this task with Zaria and Mary, and for this task we had to pick which one we would have gone to or done, and why. We had to finish this task within I think 10 minutes and I managed to finish this task and post it on my blog. We had no disagreements in the end of this task. I hope you enjoy looking through our answers.

Dawn Raid 4

Task Description

For this task, we had to read from Sunday the 22nd of August to Wednesday the 13th of October. If you do not understand what I mean, these are diary entries from a girl names Sofia who told everything about her day and how it went. For the second slide I had ti answer some comprehension questions about the story after I had finished reading it. Some were about me and some were about the story. One of the questions were asking about the meaning of one of the words that were in the story. And for the fourth slide I had to compare Charlotte and Sofia to what they had in common and what their different were to each other, I once again had skimmed and scanned through the story, trying to get more information about the two because I didn’t really have a lot in mind. And for the last final slides I had to choose 2 things that I had to create.  I chose to do a map of where Sofia and her family went, and a video about my opinions went Charlotte told Sofia about her family. Our success Criteria for this was to explain a point of view of a character, justify why I think this and to keep up with my group and If I fall behind I catch up. Our WALT for this task was to monitor ourselves to finish a novel, compare and Contrast,make Inference and make connections.
