WALT: Follow the writing process to write an exposition.
For writing we are writing about expositions, I am comparing Mother Teresa and J.k.Rowling. Here is my conclusion, where I compared them:
Overall Mother Teresa is a better leader because she looked out for others before herself, unlike J.k.Rowling who just entertains people with her writing.
WWALT: I can describe the characteristics of music from songs of a different time and place
Over the past 7 weeks I have been learning to describe the characteristics of music from songs of a different time and place
I can describe these characteristics in a piece of music
Melody: A series of single that are played repetitively.
Harmony: A ongoing set of chords that go together and they sound good together
Rhythm: The timing of words/notes
Timbre: The special quality of someone's voice that is the the same as the pitch and intensity as the tone and is unique.
Form: The plan that makes the song become a song
Here is an example of my learning --->
We have been learning all about What makes a good leader.
Here is a link to the Leadership modelling book --> https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1w8BjVr0EzMeFeLKwY1h0rYBsxDTyCuXyHahhEcPSicw
We identified that good leaders show 6 main character traits. These are integrity, trustworthy, resilient, goal focused, movtivational and active thinker.
The leadership trait that I think I show the most is trustworthy because I put up the flag and take it down when it is my turn
The leadership trait I would most like to develop is goal focused because I'm not that good at setting my self new goals
Something NEW I have learned about leadership is leaders need to show many traits to be a good leader.
The SOLO level that I reached during this unit of learning is extended abstract because I can describe a good/effective leader
(see slide 2 of the leadership modelling book for this)
My next step in learning about leadership is to apply everything that I have learned about leadership to my own leadership roles.

Someone who can help me is an expert or a teacher.
My school work responsibility is my priority during school time.
I am trying to complete it, that is main objective.
Honor could help me, or Mr Ladbrook and Mrs Smith.
Everyday before school or after.
Putting up the flag, taking it down and taking parents to Ell meetings.
Outside of school:
Mum, My computer.
After school and in the mornings.
Finish chores, homework and sleep.
My next step is to be able to balance my responsibilities through out the year.

Year 9/10 - I can find, select and use a range of texts for specific learning purposes in different tasks and learning areas of the curriculum.
For my “Evaluating Leaders” research I have been researching about J.K.Rowling and Mother Teresa.
During this unit I have had to use a range of strategies to find the information I needed on Google. This include:
Writing specifically what I want to find, going on images or videos, crosscheck and reference.
I have achieved this goal because I crosschecked all of my information I found online and then referenced.
My next step is to set a new reading goal.

Yesterday at morning tea Mr Ladbrook held a leaders meeting. All we did yesterday at the meeting was catch up and then talk about what we're going to do later in the year. And then Mr Ladbrook let us blog or go out side.
Today on the bus to technology I sat with jake on the way to technology. On the way I only talked to jake and I sat down for the whole time. And on the way back to school I did the same so the bus driver could concentrate on getting us to our destination.
I showed my Care Values by respecting the bus and the bus driver by talking quietly.
