This term you have been looking at what discrimination is and have had the choice of looking at it in terms of the following sub topics:
Immigration and discrimination
Civil Rights movement in America
This week I want you to blog about what you have learned. You need to give a definition of what your understanding of discrimination is and then explain what you have learned during this unit. You could also explain what you are doing in terms of your personal inquiry. Do you think doing this unit is a good idea? Do you think people need to be taught about discrimination – why / why not?
When you are creating your blog please remember to write in full sentences and build my questions into your answers so that someone who reads your post will understand it without having to have read my post.
This week I want you to choose from the following to blog about:
The school olympic day that was held last Friday. If you were part of this there are photos saved on N Drive – classes in action that you can use. I want you to blog about the activities you did, your favourite activity, the country you were associated with and anything else of interest. Remember you are writing for people who were not there so you need to include detail.
The James Hargest exchange. If you travelled down to Invercargill you might like to share your experience. You could blog about the sport you were involved in, how you found being billeted, the social, the bus trip etc.
Persuasive writing – you have been working hard at creating persuasive pieces of writing. Perhaps you would like to share your persuasive letter to your parents.
Olympics – continue the Olympic blog that you started last week. Add youtube clips, news items, or photos.
Remember we are part of quad blogging and this week everyone will be looking and commenting on our blogs so we need to make sure they are of a high quality.
We were minding our own business this morning, doing a current even quiz, when low and behold it started to snow! Snow in Oamaru town is not a common occurrence so it was impossible to focus on doing any work – so we stopped. We stood outside admiring the flakes as they fell gently from the sky. Here are some videos and photos taken this morning. Check out the student individual blogs for their reactions. Mr Botha – our new teacher from South Africa was very excited as they don’t have snow there!
