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.

Librarian- Merit #1

On Wednesday Charlotte and I had librarian duty at lunchtime. We started of by putting the returned books back to the shelf were they belong, it took quit a while to get it finished but that's okay it kept us busy. 
After that Mrs Ward took Charlotte in charge of the scanning while i put the rest of the books back to the shelf. We switched positions so I could also do the scanning, since it was a long line we had to show a lot of resilience in order to get this done. At the end of lunch time Charlotte and I straightened the books  Finally we are done!!
