What will we write? Form.

You have all made choices about what you’re inspired to write about:


Now, you are making choices about what you will write, what you will produce, what your final product will be. Choosing exactly what you will write is  a limitation because it gives you a focus:

Now you need to make sure you understand what a “real-life” example of these things is like. What is a newspaper or magazine like? What does it look like? What is the language like? What is the layout? What are the features?

Make a comment to tell us some information about the form of the type of writing you would like to do.

    Here is what you would need to make a good non fiction guide

    here is what you need:
    You need a tittle or head line you can put pictures to make it look good and to give an idea of what it is, an activity , to make it fun and interesting,
    a website to get more info and other books,the most important thing you need is facts and information, eg: if it is a science book about plants a fact could be if your plant dries give it water so it is green again and it is alive,information could be things you would need to know about a plant.

    Jon, Manisha and I are planning to publish the recipes we learnt at Kanchanaburi.
    A recipe usually has a list of ingredients/materials and always has the method or procedure. Some of them have pictures of the complete dish but this is not compulsory (is optional).
    In the procedure/method there are usually commanding words such as ‘put’ and ‘mix’ at the start of the sentence (E.g. Cut the carrot into 4 sections or Mix the batter until soft and frothy).
    Procedures/methods should always be in detail so nobody makes a big mistake. For example, instead of writing put the egg on the stove you should write crack the egg open onto the pan.
    If you like you can write a small discription about the dish (E.g. What it tastes like and what it should look like when ready). You might also want to add your perspective.
    Sam, Manisha and Jon

    We are searching for different blog postings and looking at their layout, language and paragraphs, etc. We found out that in nearly all blog postings they usually put an image on to it. All the texts were not located to each other. Instead they had different paragraphs. We also found out that most people that make a blog posting start it by saying why they did this or why they are writing this. Another thing we found out was that they put the image above the text or the beneath the text they don’t usually put it beside the text.

    The review we looked at was in a newspaper. It was about a hotel in South Korea and it looked really interesting and the layout looked really well. The picture looks interesting so it looked interesting to read. A good review should have:
    a nice picture
    Good layout of text
    Bold Heading
    A good design-basically ood layout of picture and text
    A review basically is like a comment about something, normally about hotels or restaurants. It is a comment for people to look at other peoples’ perspectives about different things. It is not only about a big main thing but its about small little things and how people feel about them. The language isn’t easy-it has some complex words but its suitable for everyone to read and understand. The language explains the things the writer wants to talk about.
    For the layout, The picture and the text have been layed out in a way that everyone can read and understand. Each feature is in a suitable size and looks good. The features also a little box which tells about the main information for people who don’t want to read much and it’s in a suitable place, a sentence about the picture shown, a bold heading and a bit of explanation and obviously the text and the pictures.

    What makes agood story:

    Your story must be interesting otherwise people don’t want to read it.
    A story must have a good title you should make it interesting so when people read the title they would want to read it. A story can be about anything.

    In a newspaper there is a headline which is a big title. Underneath the headline we have a sub heading. Sub heading means telling more about the title. The words is in columns and underneath the picture there is a caption which tells you more about the pictures that you’re looking at when you open the newspaper.

    We researched about guides and took a few peeks at some of the books in the library about guides. Guides are for us to learn about the author’s knowledge. Guides have titles, pictures and steps to help us learn how to do something. The language is made to explain a step after step. The language is also simple.
