Vote For National

Instead vote for National

Personally, I believe that national is the best party to vote because they are doing good to New Zealand.
Here are three policies That i would vote for:
  • Increase the residency requirement for superannuation from 10 to 20 years
  • Reduce tax on income up to $52,000
  • Extend paid parental leave to 22 weeks

Extend paid parental leave to 22 weeks.
Parental leave to 22 weeks should make a big difference for families during a necessary stage in their lives. Paid parental leave is good for parents, good for babies and supports women in the workforce.
National believes that the growing economy and improving government finances means more support can be provided for families with newborn children.

Increase the residency requirement for superannuation from 10 to 20 years.
National believes that too many migrants are able to qualify for superannuation without having contributed enough through tax.
Increasing the residency requirement from 10 to 20 years should reduce the number of people receiving superannuation who do not deserve it.

Reduce tax on income up to $52,000.
National believes it's important that everyone shares in New Zealand’s economic growth.
The Government is now in a good financial position and can afford to lower taxes.
Reducing tax on income up to $52,000 should help hard working New Zealanders, get ahead and assist low and middle income earners facing high housing costs.

Why not to vote for labour.
They are legalizing Marijuana, Because the are *good use for sicknesses*.They are not thinking about about the bad things that may happen when when they will be legalizing Marijuana.
Others might be using Marijuana the wrong way (e.g. drug use)

So there, clearly I have explain why National is the best party.
National policies are the strongest in Health because they are gonna build a new hospital in dunedin and they are gonna make dentist appointments for pregnant woman free as it is expensive
These points that i have covered are Extend paid parental leave to 22 weeks, Reduce tax on income up to $52,000 and Reduce tax on income up to $52,000
Clearly you know who i will be voting for who are you voting for?

My next steps are:

Are to add more conjunctions.

Careers Education C.V. Writing

Careers Education C.V. Writing

In CAREERS EDUCATION we have been learning to write a skills based Curriculum Vitae.

A skills based C.V. focuses more on the skills that we have,  rather than our work history.

Here is a link to our online Modelling Book that shows the process we have followed.

Three things that I have learned about writing a Curriculum Vitae are:

  1. It helps you to get a job

  1. it brings you closer to the other person

3. it has a format

Here is a link to my Skills based Curriculum Vitae.

I can apply some criteria to evaluate texts eg accuracy of information and presence of bias.

In reading we have been learning evaluate texts.

We evaluated texts against four key criteria. These were:
  • Readability
  • Accuracy
  • Relevance
  • Quality of information/ language.

Here is my evidence to show that I am able to demonstrate this reading skill.

Describe authors purpose

criteria to evaluate texts

Evaluating a range of texts

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

Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel Fat, four eyed and useless.

I found this novel interesting because it showed how Ben (the main character) went through bullying.

During the novel I had to complete two major assessment tasks. The first is an Explain Map which shows the consequences of a major event in the book. The second was a Describe++ Map (Inference map) which shows how I have connected prior knowledge and other experiences to what I have been reading to make an inference.

National Standard this covers

  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • using several pieces of information to make inferences
      using their prior knowledge, along with information in the text, to interpret abstract ideas, complex plots, and sophisticated themes
    • I can use a range of strategies, such as inferring, to work out more complex words.
