My Exposition

WALT follow the writing process to write an exposition.

This is my conclusion: 

Both Queen Elizabeth and Sir Peter Jackson are exceptional leaders; however overall I believe that Queen Elizabeth is the best leader. She has had many achievements as well as the ones I listed and has lead England and the commonwealth through many hard times. She is an amazing leader.

I can describe the characteristics of music from songs of a different time and place

Over the past 7 weeks I have been learning to describe the characteristics of music from songs of a different time and place

I can describe these characteristics in a piece of music… 
Melody: Musical notes/sound in an agreeable succession or arrangement. (The bit that gets stuck in your head.)
Harmony:Musical notes or sounds played together at the same time. Major harmony-happy song, fast tempo. Minor harmony-sad song, slow tempo.
Rhythm:A repeated pattern of sounds or notes.
Timbre:The quality of a musical note, sound or tone.
Form: The type of composition or structure in a song. 
Here is an example of my learning.

Term 1 Integrated Learning

We have been learning all about What makes a good leader.

 Here is a link to the Leadership modelling book. 

We identified that good leaders show 6 main character traits. These are integrity, trustworthy, motivational, active thinking, resilient and goal focused.

The leadership trait that I think I show the most is active thinker because if something doesn't work I try something else.

The leadership trait I would most like to develop is Motivational because I would like to motivate people more.

Something NEW I have learned about leadership is the leadership traits and what they mean.

The SOLO level that I reached during this unit of learning is extended abstract because in my exposition I evaluated the effectiveness of two leaders.

(see slide 2 of the leadership modelling book for this) 

My next step in learning about leadership is to apply everything that I have learned about leadership to my own leadership roles.

Librarian Leadership Merit #2

Merit evidence for: Librarian.
