Elections writing

WALT: Write an effective argument for our chosen political party.

The National Party is the only good  party, there’s no need to change government this election.I believe that keeping the National Party in Government is the best option.Because They Have the best policies like increasing Pay for people working for families and pay equity and Doubling the number of drug detection dogs, are all good policies. One of the many policies are reforming pay equity laws

Reforming the pay equity law
National would make it easier for employees to file pay equity claims directly with their employers, rather than having to go to court. It would be good because so people get paid equity so both gender or racies get paid equality another good policy is to Double the number of drug detection dog teams and extend their work to domestic airports.

Doubling the number of drug detection dog teams and extend their work to domestic airports.
doubling the number of drug dogs teams and extend their work to domestic airports, ferries and mail centres. Police vetting for anyone working at ports, mail centres or airport baggage centres would become mandatory.It would be a good policy to have so less people bring drugs in and out of new zealand Another important policy is increasing payment for people working for families.

Increasing payment for people working for families
National would increase Working for Families tax credits for middle and low income families.So family have more money to pay for food and housing and single parents have more money to raise their children
While National has good policies ,green has some bad policies one is banning new dairy farms

Banning new dairy farms
The Green Party would put a moratorium on the establishment of new dairy farms. This policy would be accompanied by a range of other measures to reduce pollution caused by livestock, including removing government subsidies for industrial irrigation.This would be bad because people thinking about making a dairy farm but don't have the money right now then they wouldn't be able to dairies and supermarkets sell lots of dairy products so we would need more dairy farms.Those were my key points i think you will agree will them

Clearly you can see national is the best party
Since National has the best policies, voting for them would be a good idea Increasing the pay for people working for famins and doubling the number of drug detection dogs and pay equity are all good policies
So will you be voting for national becuase i know i will be.

My next steps are:
learning how to write more persuasively

Letter Writing

In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.

We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.

This shows the process that we have followed.

Here is the letter that I have written ( Link the draft of your letter here)

Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done.

One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was having detailed information

My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.

Evaluate Texts

In reading we have been learning to apply some criteria to evaluate texts eg accuracy of information and presence of bias with Mr Brown

We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Quality of language/ information.

These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:

  • Describing Author's Purpose
  • Criteria to evaluate texts
  • Evaluating a range of texts

My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge and evaluate texts as I read them, checking for readability, accuracy, relevance and quality of language/ information
