Using Pixelmator (or another school app of your choice) create a poster to display a quote that explains to you something about leadership. If you don’t recognise the author of the quote then make sure you do a little research before sharing your quote with the class. Click on the link below to choose a quote that resonates with you.
The quote needs to be clear and be a part of a classroom display of INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES.
Scroll along the timeline and find an event to investigate. The picture above is a screen capture from the timeline. This is an example of an event you may wish to investigate further. You will be ‘publishing’ an entry for our class timeline. It will be on an A4 piece of cover paper and form part of a banner for the classroom. In class, you will have the opportunity to select something that is of interest to you. Be prepared to ‘tell’, not read about your chosen event to the grade. Your iPad is to be used for research, not publishing. You need to create a mini ‘poster’ for the banner. You may need to visit other sites to gather more information about your event.
Your heading needs to include the date and title of the event.
Once you are on your local council’s website, you need to research some information to answer the following questions. (Your question should be written within your answer – i.e. Banyule Council is my local government.) Remember to use correct punctuation and grammar.
What council is your local government?
What other suburbs are part of this council?
Who is the current mayor of your council?
What are some responsibilities of your local government?
Choose one of these responsibilities and explain (in a paragraph) what your local government does for its residents.
Look on the news page for your council and list three things that are currently happening in your local government.
If you were a member of your local council, what would you like to do or to change in your local area?
