Before the unit actually started, I inquired into the unit, How we Express Ourselves. I looked on ManageBac, and found the central idea; Media can be used to influence specific audiences. I researched online about the key points I wanted; The meaning, types of media and the influences. After that I made a Google Slide (a tool to create digital presentation, like PowerPoint) to show my inquiry about the unit.
I kept on researching, and making slides. After a few days I was ready to present, although in class we had a delay because we didn’t have much time. In the presentation, I discussed first about the definition. Then the types. I know that there are many types but these are the main types. These types are very broad, they split into many smaller types. I explained each type of media, however I didn’t explain one point, the target audience. Next I did a very important part; How media influences audience.
I used a lot of hand gesture, more than other presentations. A big improvement is to slow down, and explain more deeply, not squeezing it into a single sentence. In my presentation I used a lot of pictures, rather than looking at a slide with a lot of words. This style makes the audience focus on me, not the presentation
View life from the lens of a 10 year old, and it will bring much humour and joy. That sums up my experience with my grade 5 students at ISS.
