Te Reo Maori

WALT: communicate a message.

Description: We have been participating in 3 different workshops around colour, compositions and fonts. We put these skills to use in a poster sharing our knowledge about Te Reo Maori.
Why? We have noticed that our posters are too cluttered and do not communicate a message well.
Task: Make a poster about Te Reo Maori.
My message is clear and purposeful. Everything that is on my poster relates to my message.

Composition: My poster is balanced.

Font: My font is clear, readable and suits the message.

Colour: I have used 2-3 colours that are complementary. My background choice makes the text pop!

Accuracy: All of the words on my poster are spelt correctly. Evaluation

  1. What are you most proud of and why? The color becuase it strands out.
  2. What challenged you the most and why? How long it took.
  3. Next time, what is a goal you can work towards? Do a bit more words. 
Your poster looks very cool but you added to much colours #Jaiden
