Unit 9: Evaluation (Greg)



Which skills do you think have helped your writing in this unit? Why and how?

One of the skills that helped me the most during unit 9 was script writing, I used this skill to help me write my theatre script. The skill meant that I was able to successfully write a script as it meant I was able to develop my dialogue in which my play relies on along with the use of stage directions. Stage directions meant that my play had more characteristics to it as the actions of the characters gave an idea to the audiences what they were like. Continue reading “Unit 9: Evaluation (Greg)”


Unit 9: Research (Greg)

For the unit 9 project we have to complete two pieces that are different formats, the two have to be based on the same theme with the target audience being aged between 16-30 years old.

Before I started creating the final product I carried out research to help me gather an understanding of what I could do, how I could do it, information to include in my product and to get examples of products like my own. I collected a lot of research, however, only a few pieces had input on my work. The types of research ranged from primary to secondary, qualitative and quantitative.

Unit 9: Group discussion (Greg)

Did anyone identify specific characteristics that will impact on their writing etc?

During the discussing, we all talked about the mediums we chose and the characteristics that relate to the formats. Such as we are all doing articles and so we talked about the characteristics related to the format, these included: 25 opening words (Hook), word choice and the 5 w’s. One person said that the use of the inverted pyramid meant they were able to priorities what’s more important, and so they could organise their work and therefore improve on it.

Week Three: Unit 9, Showing and not telling (Greg)

This week we learnt how to structure a script, how to use showing vs telling in storytelling and how to work well in collaboration. Learning each of these meant that we were able to create a short film that used no dialogue but was still very clear in what the meaning was.

Week Two: Unit 9 (Greg)

This week we looked at target audience, the Inverted Pyramid, along with looking at other key skills needed to write a powerful article and character description.

Target Audience:

The first task for this week was to read a variety of different of written pieces and work out what audience they were aimed at. Each piece we had fitted a different audience in another way than another. One piece of text we had was the first chapter of the book ‘True Grit’, when reading it I thought it was aimed more towards a younger audience due to the language used, for example: Continue reading “Week Two: Unit 9 (Greg)”
