write an effective argument for our chosen political party

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

Who are you going to vote for ? I'm going to vote for the Green party and here are three main policies that have helped me decide who to vote for . The first policy I am going to vote for is in the area of environment.

Firstly the Green party is going to aim for 100% renewable electricity by 2030 .Setting a goal of 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030 should allow New Zealand to make the most of the opportunities of new technology for example using electricity without worrying about how much energy you're going to waste. I believe this will be a good policy because the world is going to eventually run out of ways to make electricity.I addition it is not healthy for the earth if we keep on digging for coal and use up all the land for wind turbines.The electricity is very important but our rivers and lakes are also very important too.

Secondly in the area of environment the Green party is going to aim for all lakes and rivers to be swimmable.Right now the dairy farms and factories are polluting lakes and rivers these include cows releasing gas etc.  so the Green party is going to go through a series of steps to make them swimmable .I think that this policy is very important because there's lots of pollution going on and it would be nice to have clean rivers.another reason is that this would also encourage children to play in the water and not go inside and watch tv .Our environment is just as important as the education of children.

Finally the Green party is going to make it safer for children to walk or cycle to school.The Green party thinks that too many children travel to school by car. So they are going to plan to do something about that for instance they are going to reduce the speed limit around schools.I agree that this is a good policy because for example if there are many cars every morning there will be a lot of pollution.I also think that it could affect the health of children because if they walk rather than ride the car the children would be a lot healthier. There are policies that i agree with but there are also policies i disagree with.

The top party thinks that legalizing cannabis is a good idea this policy includes the sale and use of cannabis.The Opportunities Party believes that current cannabis laws cause more harm than smoking cannabis does.The use of cannabis is very bad and can cause harm to our health. Another reason i oppose to this policy is  The selling of this dangerous drug is also bad because people are earning lots money by selling it . In the end I have decided to vote for green.

So now i have fully decided on which party i want to vote for i leads to voting for Green. The green party specialises in environment which is my biggest worry for example going what's best for the environment  . I have explained why i will vote for this party. Have you now decided?

My next steps are: to play with the sentences and use conjunctions effectively.

Koru Games Reflection

In the Koru Games the sport I competed in was touch

Our team won 9th place

I found the experience to be educational and fun because many of my friends were in my group

In terms of working with Individuals and Groups; my solo level is relational because i can positively respond to the need of others

For Teamwork; my solo level is unistructual because i am not a good touch player and sometimes i can not understand what there are saying

Individuals and groups
I need help to work in a group (with teachers or other students
I can work in a group with my friends.
I can work in a group with anyone in my  year level or team  

I can respond positively to the needs of others
I can reflect on how well I work with the group and seek feedback on how I can improve

I need help to interact with others.

I need help to participate in a team.
I can interact with others one to one.

Integers and Decimals

Title: Maths - Integers and Decimals

In Maths we have been learning to….find the common multiples and factors of numbers.

We have been solving equations for square roots, factors and multiples of numbers.
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Quality of language/ information.

This document shows the evidence that I have collected as I have completed the tasks.

My Next Step: Is to use this knowledge further by applying it to problem solving tasks and questions that I will solve in Maths.

Evaluate Texts

In reading we have been learning to….make decisions about the usefulness of the text for purpose, by using a variety of criteria to evaluate.

Here is a link to our online modelling book

We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Status

These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:

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
