Class Task – 11En1 – What makes a Strong Review?

LF: To evaluate what it is, that makes an entertaining and convincing review.

I MUST decide what a good review, and a bad review looks like.

I SHOULD come up with a Rule Book and Template for a review.

I COULD make use of my research, and new template, to create an authentic (slow-written) review of an attraction.

Starter: Howick Falls Review, w/s (Mr Dettman to hand out.)

1. Assess whether the Howick Falls Review is an effective review or not.  You should feedback in the WWW and EBI format.

2. Using the link above, create a Rule-book and make a short step-by-step Life-Hacker style template for how to write an authentic and entertaining review.

3. Use Tripadvisor, to find your own attraction – or use one of the ones below – to create a Slow Writing extract, from a Review of your own.
