In a recount text, students need to show that they understand the purpose of recounting. Just like in writing a write up, pupils need to start with a why, not a why me. The purpose of recounting is to give background information to explain something. We need to remind students that recounting is simply giving background information.
Recounts can be a simple fact of life or the main focus of a book. The same is true for recount writing lessons. We need to start by explaining the purpose of the recount. Why do we recount? Start by explaining the purpose of recounting. After all, this is a topic that can be covered in 20 minutes of lesson time or it can be covered in 5 hours.
A recount is a personal view of the world, so ask students to explain why they have decided to recount the water cycle. Explain that recounting is a personal view. Students can explain what changed their understanding of the water cycle, how they arrived at their opinion and how they can argue their opinion. Remember, students will only write an opinion if they can explain why they have written the opinion. If they cannot, they need to write a fact witness.
Ask students to identify the most important things they have found out about the water cycle. Ask them to write a factual recount. In their fact witness, they should explain the purpose of recounting. They should explain why they have decided to recount, what they have learnt about the water cycle, what they have learnt about each part of the water cycle (surface, ground, underground and source) and how this has changed their understanding of the water cycle.
The most important thing is to make sure that students understand what a fact witness is. In the next lesson, I will explain what a fact witness is and give you a link to a lesson on how to write a fact witness. Once students understand, you can teach them how to write a fact witness.
We are seeking a class to take on a small field trip to the university to discuss how to best keep yourselves safe and achieve your academic goals and write a reflection on the experience. You will hear from the learners how their school has set up a virtual learning environment that has allowed them to continue learning and to practice important skills in this time of isolation and all will be live streamed on our Facebook page. The virtual trip will last for three days. You will be led through the process of planning such a trip, as well as keep the group safe and productive.
Next week we'll be revealing a new set of mods for Destiny 2 which are yet to be announced. It's time to cover off the most exciting part of any Destiny 2 update, the Mod World Update.
Some applications, such as Java, require that the application directories and libraries are updated to a newer version before the user can update. However, there are some applications that are not explicitly API-specific, such as the X Window System, the X server source code, are automatically updated as required. 827ec27edc
