Imagine you are to make a resource to support the person with their health or wellbeing need and then answer the following questions:
(NB The word count is indicative. This means it is a guide, not a requirement. But your essay should be 2000 words +/- 10% excluding the questions themselves and references.)
- Think about the person you are you designing it for. What do you need to take into account when designing your resource? (100 words)
- What format will you use? You could use a leaflet, an information sheet, a social story, or any other format that is effective. How did you reach your decision? (200 words)
- How will you populate your resource? There are lots of sources of pictorial information online and through programmes like Widget or Boardmaker. (100 words)
- What is it about your resource that makes it accessible? (100 words)
- Are there any drawbacks to using the resource you’ve developed? (100 words)
“A good piece of writing should be clear and easily understandable, it should be effective at conveying your ideas and have a uniform structuring with 5 paragraphs. Each writing should compose of: introduction, 3 reasons, and a conclusion at the end of the essay. Each reason that you raise should compose of a claim, an explanation and an example…” This is what my high school English teacher taught me and as a science majored student, I loved it. I loved it so much that I stopped treating writing as a creative art but an equation that all I have to do is pluck in numbers and get an answer for it. The more the essay follows the writing formula the better, at least that’s what I have been told. On the opposite of the bandwidth lies poetry. I didn’t like poetry at all, it is an abomination, a weird dream that only exists because there are some weirdos liking a bit of non-sense in their life. There are way more paragraphs than five. There are no examples or explanations or any of the usual layout in a paragraph that is taught in class. What is in the poem is strange words that were used in the 70’s or some awkward reference to movies or TV shows back in the day that no one remembers. I understand why you roll your eyes and stare at the ceiling when you hear the word poem from your English teacher, I understand why you face palm and text FML to your friends when you see a poem in your homework. Just look at It is not fun! It is confusing and misleading like walking in a jungle with no compass. Just look at a stanza from poem “Things I Will Tell My Children About Destiny” by Cynthia Manick: A body grieved>GET ANSWER
