    For Unit 1 writing, I have looked in further depth things such as sophisticated punctuation to keep the piece flowing adequately; I have also been looking at what makes a good podcast i.e some stuttering and ‘um’ to keep a sense of realism. I have also been reading my book ‘Witch and Wizard’ so that I can full well describe and review the book, and learning to use things such as ‘[ ]’ brackets when quoting something, so I have been looking at some reviews and quoted some key phrases.

    I have prepaired for this assessment by re reading my book to make sure I have a full understanding of it and looking at reviews of it to see ehat others have to say and how they word it. I have thought about how to make it obvious it’s a podcast script aimed at teenagers by thinking about more casual language to use that will appeal to teenagers and keep them engaged in what I’m saying.

    I have prepared myself for unit one writing by re-reading my book to make sure that I understand the story line fully. I have also watched the film, which has allowed me to develop my understanding about the book. I have recently been looking at reviews of books that are aimed towards teenagers to help me when it comes to writing my podcast.

    I’ve re read the book I’m reviewing to refresh my memory, I’ve thought about possible questions that I could answer and I have read others reviews on the book to give me ideas. I’ve also picked out quotes from the book that Im wanting to use and researched into the author to see if there’s any history as to why he wrote a book about cancer. I wanted to know if he had cancer experiences perhaps within his family or a friend which inspired him to write it.

    I have read other reviews of the book that im doing to see what other people have said when reviewing it to make sure im talking about the right things. I’ve re-read the book to remind myself what happens and i have read tips on how to write a good podcast script. I researched into the author to see what awards she had won.

    I have re-read my book and have researched into other reviews to get opinions on it, from a different perspective. Therefore, i can give my reader a wider range of opinions for the book rather than just mine.

    In preparation for my unit 1 controlled assessment I have re-read my book and made several notes pages on what I need to include in a podcast and a review to make it as easy as possible for me to be able to write and not have to completely depend on my plan. I have also read reviews on my book to allow me to give different perspectives of it in my podcast so that it isn’t all one sided.
