ESL Grade 8-Emotive Language Reflection
As we have discussed in class, reflection is very important in the learning process. It gives us a chance to stop and think about what we've learned, how we've learned it, and what we might do to change or improve on our performance.
For the first part of our unit on The Power Of Words, we learned about emotive language: what it is, examples of it, and how it can be used to improve our class writing. Then we made a slide show with pictures that we chose to show emotive language.
For your assignment, you will write a blog reflection post on Part 1 of Unit 1, The Power Of Words. In your reflection, include the following:
1.) The tools which you used in the unit, and how you used them.
2.) The sites which you used and how you used them. Make hyperlinks in your post to these sites.
3.) The skills which you used to accomplish your work in the unit.
4.) Things that you think you will need to improve for the second half of the unit.
Then, include the slide show which we made as a class to practice and show emotive language.
Good luck and have fun!
