Looking at reports from a different
angle
Scenario

  You have met a friend in the
  playground. They tell you that they saw
  someone take your phone and your
  iPod from your bag while you were out
  playing sport on the oval. They tell you
  that the person they saw had brown hair
  in a pony tail with a gold headband.
   They then tell you that the person they saw
    was spotted by a teacher. However, the
    person ran away and left your iPod and
    phone behind. Another student picked up the
    iPod and phone and took it to the front office
    for whoever owned it to claim. All you needed
    to do was identify what colour your iPod was
    and the model of your phone.
The Details

  What   do we know?
What do we need to write?

  We   need to introduce what we are
   talking about.
  We also need to take down all the
   details of the event.
  We also need to make sure that we look
   at the event from both sides.
Writing a report

  We   need
   – An introduction where we introduce the
     subject and what has actually happened.

   – We need to include as many details as
     possible in our report in different
     paragraphs.
Writing your own report

    Look at your details from the scenario you were
     given.

    Introduction – write who, what, when, where that
     were involved in the incident.

    Description – describe the characteristics of the
     people involved in the incident. You can use
     subheadings.
    Make sure you use a new paragraph for each
     section.
