WALT: Edit and present
Once you have completed your explanation that you partly wrote or completed yesterday, read through your writing thoroughly one last time.
Check you have included a question for the heading, an opening paragraph introducing your subject, a conclusion/ summary, subheadings, clear paragraphs, causal conjuctions to give reasons, time conjunctions, exciting sentences, show off words.
Does every sentence make sense? Is it perfectly punctuated?
Use a thesaurus to ensure you have chosen the best possible words for your explanation.
Challenge: Practise reading your explanation aloud. Make sure you can pronounce all of the technical words correctly. Try to make your voice sound as interesting and clear as possible.
Try to read your text fluently to an audience (a friend, family member, or record yourself on the Dojo video found in your profile). Ask for feedback from your audience – at least 2 things you did well, 1 thing you might try to improve.
Well done for all your hard work. Hopefully, you feel proud of your efforts.
