Literacy - Week 6 (recap)

Our literacy for the remainder of Term 3 will involve two different warm-up activities:
  • creative writing or vocab/grammar activities; and the 
  • Year 10 reading challenge with 3 assessments (due in at the end)
So, each week you will complete one warm up activity then continue with the ongoing Year 10 Reading challenge.

This week - WEEK 6 - every student is required to complete the creative writing task - picture of the day.  Then you need to start choosing your reading material and which 3 assessments you might want to complete for the Year 10 reading challenge.  Following are links and details for both activities:

Picture of the day - creative writing activity

Year 10 Reading Challenge you must choose text that is suitable for your level of reading ability.  The text must be able to assist you in completing the three assessments required by due date TBC.  Reading material to consider:
  • literature novels, short stories, articles, fiction, non-fiction, journals
  • Register to writing apps - Wattpat, fanfiction, A03 - Archive of our own

I will run a workshop today - Thursday 27 August to unpack this literacy activity for any students who need assistance.

Here is an example of a completed 'picture of the day' by Logan Koia...well done Logan.  This is a good short piece of writing that offers a creative heroism problem, drawing in suspense to its readers ending with an exciting twist:

The phone began to ring…ring ring ring the two retired superheroes had just got a phone call from some superheros in need of their help at the abandoned warehouse on the other side of town.
Suddenly super nan had heard a voice  in her head it said help us help us. It was her son Power. “Please we are at an abandoned warehouse on the other side of town”. Super nan woke up super dad, they flew to the abandoned warehouse in a hurry. As they made a cool entrance by smashing through the roof, super nan suddenly had forgotten about her teeth. She said, "I'll be back in no time!". Super dad was there all alone with no backup. He heard a strange noise behind a big black box, he rushed over to see what made the noise.
What he found was unbelievable. He got set up from his own super hero friends, “1...2...3 surprise, HAPPY 100th birthday" - he nearly had a heart attack. He asked, “where is super nani ?” She walked in with a big double chocolate cake.  This is a picture of them after eating the chocolate cake.
