Martin Luther king btn

 Fact; On august 28 1963 martin luther king jr gave a live changing speech about equality and for civil and economic rights for african americans, 100s of thousands of people came to watch this speech. It was life changing and as little as a year later congress Paased the civil rights bill that ended segregartion of couloured americans and banned discrimination in the work place. But devastatingly on  April 9 1978 Martin Luther king was shot at a hotel in Tennessee. Currently there is a memorial at that site.

 

 

Question;My two questions are ,  who shot Martin Luther king and why, and what was the name of the hotel he was shot at.

 

Understanding;  I know understand Martin Luther king was a very influential person for his time and that he changed the way African Americans were looked at.

Goal; to include suspense in my text

I was franticly runing through the misty wood, it was near, scared by the knowledge of what it had done painstaikingly I continued. Almost out of know where it’s piercingly shape teeth latched on to my shoulder leaving a crimson red stain. I looked back with a grave look in my eyes. I KNEW it would come back for me. I had to do something, anything. I shouted for help, I wasn’t surprised obviously no one came. I felt gutted there was almost nothing that I could do. I had to run, my shoulder ached but I went on, I HAD to.

Goal- To draw my readers in from the start.

 

As I nonchalantly frolicked about in the warm, inviting spring sun of the evergreen forest I notest something totally abnormal roming the forest. It was what appeared to be a giant, but what truly puzzled me was the fact that it was so immensely large its upper body seemed to disappear in mid air. It seemed to be made of some kind of copper yet to rust. I was in awe how could something of this scale exist! It was so breathtaking I didn’t notice piercing thumps coming from it. All of the sudden I realised it was heading straight for me.

Vikings btn

Vikings btn

Facts- 

One of the most profound stereotypes of Vikings is their extravagant horned hats. Yet this is NOT true, the horns got introduced in the 1800’s by theatre costume designer called Carl Emil Doepler.

The second fact is that Vikings took immaculate  care of their appearance and and it was more than common to always have tweezers, combs and weird tiny spoons to scoop out earwax on hand.

The final fact which lives up to its stereotype is that they are VERY good sailors and can almost flawlessly navigate the sea. This allowed them to form colonies across the globe.

 

Question-

Where did the myth about Vikings having pet dragons come from as it seems quite unrealistic?

Did Vikings ever ever come across Australia and if so did they ever settle here?

 

Understanding-

I know understand that Vikings have MANY untrue stereotypes that are far from realistic. I know know what Viking are really like and their many interesting facts (like priding their appearance!).

I was on sinking ship in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with no way to contact help.And Although I would love to say there was some miracle and out of no where a helicopter spotted us, that was NOT the case . I was the lone survivor of V.S Stirling, though there was a rescue boat I was the only one to swim to it in time . The rest of my crew drowned and  although they were quick, they were still not making enough progress . These few moment have haunt me to this day and it still gives me chills writing this to you know.

 

 

GOAL: to be as descriptive as

BTN History of voting

BTN History of voting

Facts 

Questions

Understanding  

 

 

Ever  few years all Australian citizens over the age of 18 get to vote, but for a long time it wasn’t like that. Women were though of as overly emotional simply not smart enough to vote, by the late 1800’s suffragettes (women who demanded that they be able to vote), they wrote articles and led protests. Finally in 1902 they were granted the right to vote,and Australia became the very first country to allow women to vote and go up for election, but that didn’t mean everyone could vote. Aboriginal Australians couldn’t vote, they could finally vote in 1949, but that was only for those who served in the army.  It wasn’t until 1962 all aboriginals had the right to vote. Did you know the voting age was 21 until 1973 ?!

 

Currently can aboriginals run for parliament?

Are there any country’so   now that  don’t allow women  to vote?

I understand that it took Australia a long time to allow all Australian citizens to have the right to vote.

 

btn Governor General

btn Governor General

Facts 

When we think of the most powerful person in Australia we probably think of the PM, but did you know there’s actually someone who FIRE the PM and they’re called the Governor General ( or GG). They represent the queen ( because we are a monarchy) and make sure the Prime minister is following all the rules. Although they have private jets and mansions that doesn’t necessarily mean they have it easy, they have to attend many events and shake LOTS of hands and of our previous GG’s attended at least one event every day for the whole time she was GG. And you know back in 1975 the GG John Kerr fired the PM Gough Whitlam, this caused a ton of controversy, so it fair to say its not a job to take lightly. 

Question

Will a GG ever fire a pm again?

Who is our current GG?

 

Understanding 

I understand that being GG is a really important job even though they might not get much credit or publicity and is not a job to be taken lightly.

100wc ( the cup)

100wc ( the cup)

Unlike most cups this one  did not hold pitiful liquid, for this cup held secrets dark secrets, sacred secrets know one could ever know. Yet it didn’t just hold secrets it held memories, precious memories of  joy and sorrow from far and wide. As it drifted from place to place enlightening all who came in contact with its memories and secrets, leaving all who bearded the cups wisdom wise. You may not ever see value in a mere teacup, and you may not ever need to, for the cup is long gone and only remains in the memory  and myth.

 

Goal: Really include the prompt in my piece.

Facts

understandings 

 

There are 3 very important levels of government, federal , state and local, they all work separately (although they may overlap) to keep our country and it’s states and territory’s safe. Federal looks after the big stuff  like monetary issues and taxes, foreign affairs, defence and so much more. State look after things concerning it state ( or territory) like police the fire department and ambulance, it looks after roads ( particularly large freeways) , schools, and hospitals. Local looks after the smaller things ( although there are over 500 of them through out Australia) they look after permits, pets and garbage. Although sometimes they disagree federal alway gets the final say.

Who is or local leader? 

What dissargements have the 3 levels had recently?

I now understand who they 3 levels of government are and the roles and responsibilities  they have.

Miss Brown my teacher, waved to me and greeted me, “Morning…. well aren’t you going to do the role?” Uhh yes, or gestured to the my desk and hesitantly started to call out my students names. After role there was an arkward silence, what was I suppose to teach.  “Miss what are you gonna teach us,” said one. “Uh about that- um, er, you can read, yeah read,”
