DESCRIPTIVE WRITING

As part of our learning about Narratives 3/4MW and 3/4CH have been working together to improve the quality of our descriptions of our characters and the setting.

 

PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING IN A NARRATIVE THAT HAS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF A DESCRIPTION.

 

Here are some examples

  • The heavens broke like a cookie crumbling apart
  • As the sun rose I could feel the rays of sunlight blessing the baby

Web 2.0 Tools -Prezi

WEB 2.0

We have been exploring new ways of reflecting on and presenting our learning. Part of this process allowed us to explore the Web 2.0 Platform ‘Prezi’.

On your own blog, embed your completed Prezi and answer the following reflective questions:

How does this platform change the way I can present my work to others?

Is this a more effective type of presentation? Why or why not?

How does this improve the way you learn?
