We have been working hard in class analysing, performing and writing poetry. Now it is time to share some of the fantastic poetry you have all written!
Post all of your poems on your own blog page, making sure you include an illustration/visuals that relates to the main theme of your poem.
Once you have posted your own poem, go on to other students pages and read some of your classmates poetry. Make sure you leave a comment for each poem you read. Remember: BE POSITIVE and CONSTRUCTIVE - not negative or rude
Write a paragraph in which you analyze how this picture uses imagery to achieve the purpose of creating juxtapostion. In your paragraph you need to answer the following:
1. What is implied that is not actually stated in this photograph?

On your own blog page I would like you to:
1. Find your own appropriate image or write and explanation of juxtaposition.
2. Explain how the picture effectively uses imagery to achieve the purpose of implying juxtaposition.
Create a response to the following question:

We have been talking in class about how we use the world’s water and different water issues. We have read explanations, watched video clips on water issues, and watched a movie on climate change and how it could affect our global water supply.
“Within your lifetime, fresh water could be as precious as oil is today.”
I would like to get your opinion on this quote. What do you think? Do you agree with this statement? Explain using an open response. Remember to give your gist statement and support for your answer. Your support should come from our discussions and lessons in science and language arts, the movie we watched and the video clips on water issues.
We have viewed many video Public Service Announcements in class. I would like you to create a post on your own student blog page about the P.S.A. you thought was most convincing. In your post, include the following details:
- The title of the P.S.A.
- The main idea/message of the P.S.A. – make sure you include as much detail as you can with the main idea/message. How effective was it in persuading you to take specific action or motivate you to act/react.
- Give reasons why you selected this P.S.A. as the most convincing? Make sure you give support/evidence from the components chart we have used in class that breaks the P.S.A. down. For example:
-Does it use real language, dialogue, music or
soundeffects to create emotion?
-Does it deliver the message with clarity?
-What camera angles are used?
-Does it motivate the audience to act?
Hello and welcome to our 7/8C blog page 2011-2012. A place where I hope we can extend our learning outside the classroom and 21st century skills. We now live in an increasingly globalized, and media-saturated society where we are expected to be able to create, publish, share, collaborate, connect, and have a voice.
When you create each blog post, I want you to ask yourself the following before posting:
1. Is my issue and opinion/point of view clearly stated?
2. ls my post focussed, purposeful, and persuasive?
3. Have I made my target audience question their views on the topic/issue?
4. Have I checked my spelling, grammar and sentence structure before posting?
5. Is my post appropriate ? Think before you hit post.
NEVER post something that will humiliate, embarass, threaten or discriminate.
Let’s get blogging!
