Elections Writing

WALT: Write an effective argument for our chosen political party.
What is the best party to vote for?. I think it is the Maori Party is the best party to vote for personally. Here are three policies I am going to vote for from the Maori Party. The first policies I am voting for is to aim to end homelessness by 2020.

Aim to end homelessness by 2020. They want to get people off the streets and they want to give people more jobs as a builder and if there is people on the streets with kids they can give them a good life. Also people can live a normal life in a house and have shelter for their kids also water,food and clothes. Lastly people don’t ask you for money on the streets and so there is more space to put stuff like statues. Another policy is Halve power bills for households with rheumatic fever.

Halve power bills for households with rheumatic fever. The Maori party wants to halve the power bills for the families that are going thru a tough time in their life. Because they have to pay things to help the person with rheumatic fever. Also they can save their money to get a healthier home so the kids and parents don't get sick. As well as halving  power bills for households with rheumatic fever, Strengthening tenants’ rights is also a great policy.

Strengthening tenant's’ rights. Firstly the people that live in the house can do stuff to the house that may help it get better. Second people can put stuff in the house and outside that could make the house better but they can ask. Lastly they can remove stuff from the house without asking and build sheds if they won’t. My next paragraph is about how getting rid of national standard spreadsheet is bad.

Abolish National Standards. If they do this kids won't be able to know what they need to achieve in their learning. This will not be good because the parents will not be able to see there kids are doing and achieving. The kids might be doing stuff that is way too easy because they can't see what they are doing and they standard. Now i'm going to wrap up all my points in the conclusion.

That’s the political party I'm voting for is Maori party all the way. I have voted for these policies Aim to end homelessness by 2020 Halve power bills for households with rheumatic fever Strengthen tenants’ rights. Would you really want labour running the country.

My next steps are:to use more commas and semicolon

We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy

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. I learnt that you need to be detailed

  1. I learnt that you need to be particular with your spaces, size of text ect

  1. I learnt that you need to have capital letters at the start and at peoples names or they will not read it

Here is a link to my Skills based Curriculum Vitae.C.V

My Writing

In writing I have been learning to:
  • use all basic punctuation independently
  • attempt more complex punctuation (eg semicolons, colons, parentheses)

I have been especially focussing on using parentheses and commas. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is a piece of my writing that shows this.
