Treaty of Waitangi Summary

My group and I summarized the Treaty of Waitangi in fewer words. To make our summary, we read a text about how it began and how it affeced Aotearoa due to the many promises broken from when they signed the document for peace for both countries, the Maori chiefs and the British Crown. After we collected many information we picked the 20 important words in the first box above, then chose the 6 most important words that would be included/written in the third box.

Something interesting I have learnt from this while looking into more of what happened in Waitangi, that there was a Waitangi Tribunal to investigate disputes.

Statistical Inquiry

LI: To carry out a statistical inquiry.

We were doing a statistical inquiry, by posing a question which was an open question which helps us find the reason for an opinion. 

After that we made a survey using google forms to find out the opinions of LS2 students. Then we organised the responses on google sheets by clicking data then sort range.

 We graphed the data and this was going to help us read the information much better like a math picture.

After that we analysed the responses and found the reasons for the opinions. Lastly we drew conclusions which we used to find out what the information was telling us and why people thought that way?

During this activity I found it confusing while trying to organize the responses in google sheets.

Sorting Text Structure

LI: To identify the structure of a text.

My group and I were learning about the different types of text structures. The different text structures we learnt about were description, order & sequence, compare & contrast, problem & solution, and lastly cause & effect. These text structures helps us identify and use when we are reading and writing something. Once we learnt and sorted the text structure that was on another slide, we created our own one writing about the CARE values. After we created our own we wrote the definitions of each structure.

This activity helped me make a connection to my reading skills because it’ll help me identify what type of text it is while reading the text. 

Something I have found interesting was how this activity helped me understand the different text structures, and how I can identify them.
