During English we had a exam that was suppose to be a news report based on either: A: based on a story about Mt Fuji erupting, B:stolen cars and police chase, C famous sports star injury and D: a new gadget invented. I did my story on C. In class today we reflected in our english books on the following questions and also answered the questions:
What can I target between now and Grade 7?
I think I should target making sure not to overuse words because that could cause my reading to look rushed. Between now and Grade 7 I’m going to try and not miss minor grammar mistakes because all I really have to do is fix that problem is check my writing more carefully and several times. I suppose I need to work on making sure to use capital letters because I just forget to use them and sometimes rush through my writing so I just don’t notice the letters. One thing I always notice in my reading is I use a lot of informal words which don’t match with my writing.
How will I do it?
I will hit my targets by as I said before checking over my writing more and using a wider variety of words by reading books that aren’t in my genre so I can learn new words as well as checking my thesaurus. Also I would like to try and take my time when I’m writing more important projects or assessments because then I will be able to check over my writing and not sprint through my writing, and make mindless mistakes. To make sure I dont use informal words, to make sure I don’t use informal words I’m determined to read novels that aren’t as casual that are written towards only more teen books.
