Franz's Career Blog Post

C.V. Blog POst Template

Blog Post Title:   Careers Education C.V. Writing

Copy and paste all of the text below into a new blog post.

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:

    • Is a brief (usually but not always) account of a person’s education, qualifications, previous work experience and other useful previous experience.

    • Is submitted when a person applies for a job and gives employers an idea of the suitability of a person for a particular job.

    • Promotes you as the right person for the job and should make an employer want to find out more about you ie. offer you a face to face interview.

Evaluate Texts Blog Post

Evaluate Texts Blog Post template

In reading we have been learning to….apply some criteria to evaluate texts eg accuracy of information and presence of bias.

We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Quality of language/ information.

These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:
(link your own learning for each of these activities. Please make sure your sharing settings are open)

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

Franz Bongalon - Use a range of multiplicative strategies when operating on whole numbers - Assessment Task

Use a range of multiplicative strategies when operating on whole numbers

I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions

The escape

A prisoner sits in his cell planning his escape. The prisoner is kept in by 5 laser beams, which operate along a corridor. Each laser is switched off at a specific time interval for just long enough to allow a person to walk through. The time between being switched off for each laser is shown below:

  • Laser One = every 3 minutes
  • Laser Two = every 2 minutes
  • Laser Three = every 5 minutes
  • Laser Four = every 4 minutes
  • Laser Five = every 1 minutes

The guard patrols and checks the prisoner each time all the laser beams are off simultaneously. Because each laser only switches off for a short time the prisoner knows he can only get past one laser at a time. He has to get past the five lasers from 1 to 5 in order. Laser One is at the entrance of the prisoner’s cell and laser Five is at the door to the outside. He also knows that if he spends longer than 4 minutes 12 seconds in the corridor an alarm will go off.

Can the prisoner escape without the alarm in the corridor going off?
Yes and all the lasers turn off 1 hour

If he can escape, how many minutes should he wait before passing Laser One?

He has to wait for 3 minutes

How much time will he have after passing Laser Five before the guard raises the alarm?

9 minutes

In writing I have been learning to:
  • use all basic punctuation independently
  • attempt more complex punctuation (eg semicolons, colons, parentheses)

I have been especially focussing on using parentheses and commas. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is a piece of my writing that shows this.

Integrity is being honest and fair. A leader who has shown integrity is Nelson Mandela
Because when he became president he changed the law to make it fair for everyone. Integrity is important in my leadership role because peer mediators need to be fair at solving problems. I will be demonstrating this by being fair on duty.
