This week I got feedback on my final major project and I had to redo the layout and look at different layouts of articles on the internet and i looked at layouts templates on word and publisher to see which one will work for me best to get a good grade. I also change the pictures in the article.

article-poverty

Evaluation

I decided to do an article about poverty in Britain and what charities can help people out there. Before I came to this final idea. I look at ten different issues within society. Then we had to narrow it down to one that we were passionate after doing a mind map for the five issues that I was passionate about but the poverty was the one that I wanted to do because it was a topic that I was passionate because I don’t like seeing people begin cold and hungry all the time. Before I started writing the article, I did a mind map to see what causes poverty in Britain then I did my research plan to think about what questions I need to answer about the causes and consequences about poverty. I found it difficult to get the layout of the article correct to hand in for my final piece. So I attempted to do the article on published but the layout was all over the place and when I printed the article the text was coming off the page so I decided to go into word and choose an article template to work and it was much better the second time I attempted to do the article, it was a much better layout and it looked like an article for people to read. My strengths for this project was making sure I did the research correctly before doing my final piece. I decided to add the websites that I used at the end of the article if people want to read more about poverty and the charities that I have mentioned in my article if they want to find more information of how they can help people. I found that my final project did link in with my project proposal because I answer all the information that I put in the proposal and I also got my tutors to read my article to see if I had to change anything but the only thing that I had to change was the layout of the article and make sure that all the writing was on the page so my tutors can read it. I also found that getting the grammar and spelling correct in my article because it didn’t make sense so Kate helped me to gather my pictures and edit my spelling before the deadline. I also enjoy this year because it made me realise that they are different types of media so I decided to try out print this year for my final project because I thought that it would take my while to interview and film it. But I also ask some of my friends about what their view is on poverty and how they felt about it in Britain and should it be allowed but the results that I gather from my friends is that I think that poverty shouldn’t be allowed in Britain and the government should help people in Britain first and they feel sad about this and it helped me to write my article.

Wednesday 8th June 2016

Today I rearranged my article and put it in my one words and in the correct order. Also I added so pictures to the article. I found that writing the final draft of my article difficult because I found it hard to put it into my own words.

Poverty in Britain

In this issue :

  • Measuring poverty
  • Child poverty
  • Charities that can help people
  • Peoples views on poverty
  • Causes of poverty

 

There are so many problems in Britain that cause people to live in poverty. But

What are the causes and how can people solve them to live a happier life an

carrying on following their dreams.

 

Consequences of poverty

Poverty can have a massive impact on children’s life and well begin because they have limited life choices on what they want to do in life .

There are personal and external factors that can lead  to people begin in

poverty and here are some facts  of poverty in the past year.

According to kent.gov that in 2011/12, that there was  about 9.8 million people living in poverty  in the UK. It can lead to people having mental health and social problems.  There has been a increase in severe poverty  since 2005.  Poverty can link to health disadvantages and in the UK today it seems to be determined by their wealth but disabled people are more likely to live in poverty

 

People’s view on poverty

Some people think poverty shouldn’t be allowed in Britain because there isn’t enough support for people who really need it but Britain are allowing people from other countries to come in and give them all the support  they need instead of families. Also people feel sad about this because no should be living in

poverty and people who live in Britain already should have got the  help they need first before giving it people they let in. Also everyone should be looked after.

Measuring poverty in the UK

There are many different ways  to measure poverty in the UK and the most common way of measuring poverty is the income. It also shows which groups that are  more at risk  about

living in poverty .  Also the government can see  if  poverty is decreasing or increasing in

Britain.

How does income link in with poverty?

The income in the  UK and the European union is less than 60% of the modern average of

other countries . But if people are still living on  the relative poverty line. This means that the government  are keeping up with different households whether they are poor or rich and the government are making sure they are keeping up with other people on the middle income.

Child poverty

There  are different reasons why children live in poverty. But here arte some of reasons

  • If there are living with a single parent
  • Having a larger family with 3 more children
  • Social housing
  • Someone is disabled in the house.

 

Child poverty is about children living in households suffering from a lack of  material resources     they need. The resources might include  money . But other people might need healthcare , a  home and free education. Some groups of children are at a higher risk of  living in poverty than others.

They are

  • Black and minority ethnic groups
  • Work less and working households

 

Why are children growing up in poverty

The reason why children are growing up in poverty  because they might be having a loss of their parents begin out of employment. The barriers to unemployment are onset of illness or  disability but these factors are immediate causes of poverty.  But there are also some

underlying and long term  causes of poverty as well.

Consequences of child poverty

Poverty can have a massive impact on children’s life and well-begin because they will have   limited life choices. This means that they might not be able to follow their dreams

depending on their qualifications and education.

 

Charites that can help poverty

The charities are

  • Oxfam
  • Salvation army
  • Child action group
  • Turn to us
  • Save the children

 

Oxfam is a global worldwide charity that helps people in poverty and they will give people    food and water to live on. They believe that everyone in the UK  should have enough food to eat. They also work alongside Trussell food bank to deliver free meals to people.

You can support Oxfam by running a marathon, by volunteering in one of the shops or donate money online.

 

Salvation army

People can turn to this charity because  salvation army can help people to come out of poverty.     Also they can help people if they are in an emergency , they can find them a long-term solution and the ongoing nature of their work . The charity can provide clothes, food parcels and utility top ups etc. they also provide emergency accommodation.

Child action group

They help children and families to understand what causes poverty and the impact that it has on people’s life. They provide accurate information, training and advice . We can help by making a donation and become a member. It is aiming to end child poverty in the UK.

Save the children

This is a charity that help over 17.4 million children through their work in 2014. but if a family is living in disaster , they can help provide food , water and healthcare protection. It is a worldwide charity.

Tuesday 7th June 2016

Today we finished off our trailer for our final project . Then we edit the video in Adobe premier on the computer then we uploaded to YouTube. I feel like the trailer went well but it can be improved by taking out the background sound. Also we couldn’t finished filming outside because it started to rain. so we decided to finished filming down by the performing arts department because we needed a bench.

Monday 6th June 2016

Today I finished my article on poverty in Britain and how we can prevent it. The next thing that I need to do is write my evaluation and ask people to read it and give me feedback on it.

Evaluation 

I found writing the article easy because I had all the information I need before I started writing my article.  The reason why I choose to write an article because it was going to take me less time to plan out what I was going to put in the article. The planning for my article included looking on different websites  which helps people to come out of poverty and what effects poverty have on people. To improve my article I can add colour to the background on the article so it stands out to people and it might make them read the article. I found that writing an article is my strength because I enjoy writing a lot. Also I wanted a change from doing a film.

 

Monday 23/05/16-Wednesday 25/05/16

 Tuesday

Today we finished filming for our walk-tall trailer to edit in adobe premier. it was easy to edit but we are going record our selves talking about how we feel and where we can go to get help. I was working with Jesse Way and Josh Shelly. I found working in this group difficult because I felt like that I was the only one doing the work when I ask the boys to help.

Wednesday

Today we carried on with our work experience project. We managed to get all the

pre-production work complete and handed in to Dave.

Monday 16/05/16-Wednesday 18/05/16

Monday 

Today we carried on with our final major project, my project is about what causes in poverty and I finished off planning out my article than I started on my first draft of the article to hand to my tutor to see if it needs any improvement on it and so I  can hand in my final article before the end of June.

Poverty in Britain

 

 

Should poverty be allowed in Britain?

 

There are so many problems in Britain that causes poverty and child poverty in Britain. Some of the problems are

  • Inequality in wages
  • State benefits
  • Long-term unemployment

 

 

There are personal and external factors that can lead to people begin homeless. But in 2011/12 about 9.8 million people were living in poverty in the UK and this can lead to people having mental health and social problems. Also the low income doesn’t result in lower standards of living but also affects people’s life choices. There has been an increase in severe poverty since 2004.  Inequality was at its highest level in 2008/9. Poverty can link to health disadvantages but in the UK today people’s health is determined by their wealth but disabled people are more likely to live in poverty and there are relatively high levels of income inequality.

 

How does income link with poverty?

 

The income in the UK and the rest of the European union is less than 6o% of the contemporary median. If people are using relative poverty line they are measuring whether poor households are keeping up with people on the middle incomes. In London after three years, 27% of people living in London were living in poverty after housing costs was taken into account.

 

Measuring poverty in the UK and why it matters?

If people are living in absolute poverty, this means that there is focus on the minimum requirements that they need to ensure physiological efficiency. This means that people can be classed as poor if they lack the resources that they need in life. But in the UK, the focus has been on child poverty because there are 3.7 million people children in relative poverty after the housing costs.

 

Why do people measure poverty?

It tells people you are in poverty and which groups are at more risks of poverty and to see if poverty is changing over the years. Also it enables people that if there are low-income households are getting nearer or further away from the average income and get the resources they need to live in society over time.

 

 

Child poverty

 

If a child lives in a household where no one works, they are more likely to live in poverty but also there are other risk factors for people ending up to live in poverty includes:

  • Living in a lone parent family
  • Living in a larger family with 3 or more children
  • Social housing
  • Someone is disabled in the house

 

Child poverty is about children living in households suffering from a lack of material resources. The resources might include money but people may also need healthcare, a home and free education.

There are different types of children that are at higher risk of living in poverty than others. The groups are

  • Children in households affected by disabilities
  • Lone parent families
  • Large families
  • Black and minority ethnic groups
  • Workless and working households
  • Asylum seeking households

 

Why are children growing up in poverty?

Children are growing up in poverty because they might be having a loss of parental employment, barriers to employment and onset of illness or disability. These factors are immediate cause of poverty but there are some underlying/ long -term causes of child poverty as well.

Consequences of child poverty

Poverty can have a massive impact on children’s life and well-being because they have limited life choices on what they want to do in life. This can be from health and well-begin to education and employment depending on their qualifications.

People’s view on poverty

Some people think poverty shouldn’t be allowed in Britain because there isn’t enough support for people who really need it but Britain are allowing people from other countries to come in and give them all the support they need instead of families. Also people feel sad about this because no one should be living in poverty and people who live in Britain already should have got the help they need first before giving it to people they let in. Also everyone should be looked after.

 

Charites that can help poverty

There are different charities that can help people living in poverty and there are charities that can help children who are living in poverty as well. Here are some of the charities and how they can help e.g.

  • Oxfam
  • Salvation army
  • Child action group
  • Turn to us
  • Save the children

 

 

Oxfam is a global worldwide charity that helps people in poverty . They tried to help give people clean water and food to eat. Their approach is to  develop projects to improve the lives of people.

Tuesday 

We carried on with our charity project which is about Walk-tall and how they help people. today we started filming our trailer and taking pictures for our poster to pitch our ideas next week.

Monday 9th may 2016-Wednesday 11th may 2016

Monday

Today I started planning out what I was going to put in my article for my final major project which is about what causes poverty in Britain and how people can help and what charities are out there to help. I did some background research on different charities and child poverty and how it affects people in life. I also typed up what I think of my poverty and what some of my friends think of poverty.

My view on poverty

I think that poverty shouldn’t be allowed in Britain because families are going to be hungry, thirsty, be cold because their parents will find it hard to buy the essential things that they need to have everyday. It makes me upset to see adults and children suffering because the world is unfair and children shouldn’t be living in poverty because they won’t have a long life expectancy because they are dying of malnutrition and not having clean water.

Tuesday  

As a group, we worked on our work experience project which is on a charity called walk-tall and we finished off planning out the posters and trailer. Also we started on our pre-production work to start taking photos next week.

 

The world we live in is strange, isn’t it? We fear being left behind, so we try to blend in, losing ourselves in the process. We live in an age where we should be free to create and share, but we can’t, because of problems no one notices, or cares about enough to fix. And then there are those who have had experiences that would make them shy away from the world altogether. It’s high time for a change. Why should people be too afraid to shine, when they’re only supressing their true potential? You’re not defined by your past in the slightest, not unless you choose to be, so don’t fall in that trap. Get to the stage, stadium or studio and prove yourself, because if you don’t, you’d only be living a lie. In a world of insecurity, we here at Walk-Tall stand strong like a beacon. With your contribution, we can bring about a new age of creativity previously denied by the self-doubt lurking in the minds of many. So come to us…and let’s break some barriers.

7 Myself saying final lines “Come to us-and let’s break some barriers.” Outside the college building

Trailer overview

 

The video will include my narration. This consists of myself telling the viewer that people are often afraid of seeking creative pursuits due to their low self-esteem. Then I express the fact that there needs to be a change. I say that people should be encouraged to be creative and say that with the viewer’s contributions, the can help bring about a rebirth of art and other forms of entertainment. I end my narration with the line “Let’s break some barriers,” referencing the tagline of Walking Tall, “Breaking Barriers- Success through Performance, Education and Therapeutics.”

There will be some footage accompanying my presence, for example, people playing sports at a court, or shots of artwork and musical instruments, presumably from the art department. There will most likely be inspiring background music, although I haven’t decided on the song to use and will most likely leave this to others in the group. The trailer will end with a logo of the company along with Walking Tall’s contact details.

For reasons related to audio, I will end up doing a voiceover, and only make an appearance at the end to deliver my final lines using lip syncing.

The main roles are:

Voiceover/Actor: Myself

Audio mixer:Jesse Way/ Imagene Reid

Camera Work: Josh

Director:Imagene Reid

 

Equipment:

Camera

Adobe Audition CS6 (or any other software used for recording audio)

 

 

Major issues:

  1. Sport Related Risk: As footage from sports is likely to be collected, there is likely to be a risk of injury if camera moves too close to people taking part.
  2. Dropping Camera
  3. Weather: If there is rain, there may be puddles left over and people involved may slip.

Solutions:

  1. Sport Related Risk: Keep a safe distance from any people taking part in sports.
  2. Dropping Camera: Make sure the camera is safely secured.
  3. Weather: Watch carefully for puddles before moving.

 Wednesday

Today we redid our pitch in front of Dave and Kate so they can film us doing our pitch for our final project. I  used Harvard reference when getting pictures and where I collected my research from. I learnt that presenting in a group is helpful because I can reflect my feedback and us this to improve ideas for my final piece. Whilst presenting I felt that I had confidence and I felt that my PowerPoint also emphasized  emotion. This was shown through real pictures of families living in poverty, therefore emphasizing just how big of an issue poverty is. I also felt like my key skills were shown through presenting. The next thing that I need to so is  to plan my article out before I write it and do some background  research. Also next week we will be doing our work experience unit. When I was creating my pitch , Dave gave us a PowerPoint to follow so we have an idea what to put into our pitch. Also I include some background information of different causes of poverty and how it can affect people in the long run of life. Also living in poverty can cause mental health problems and low self esteem. Also I added what charities can help people living in poverty in the PowerPoint and I am going to add them into my article.

 

Tuesday 3/05/16-Wednesday 4/05/16

This week we started our work experience unit. For this we had to work in a group and a choose one charity from the our that we were given. The four charities were stonewall, frank, walk-tall and porch light. As a group we decided to go with walk-tall because it helps young people to build their confidence and self-esteem through performing arts. This week we created our ideas and put the ideas into a mind map for the trailer and poster. Also we decided to split into two smaller groups so we can have a group working on the trailer and a group working on the posters for our chosen charity. But before we did the posters, we decided to gather some research to help us with the task that we were given to complete as a group.  Also we started to come up with some of the ideas we can do for a poster for the charity before we came up with the final idea. Also we started to plan out our pitch before putting all the work together. The next thing that we need to do is prepare our pitch and put it into a powerpoint.The people that were doing the work was me and josh. also we decide to spilt the group into two smaller groups of three to work on the project instead of doing it in one big group.

 

Research that we found about walk-talk

It has been a charity for 11 years. it uses different ways of performing arts for young people and adults to build their confidence and self esteem. They offer extensive counselling for adults, vulnerable and young children who have experience challenging life situations. They also do music and visual arts. They provide professional theatre. music and arts services. Also they have meeting rooms and a recording studio for people to record themselves singing. Also the charity offers young peoples arts classes during the day and it helps people to gain a qualification in performing arts. They do a wide range of events for people to go to and take part in.

Pitch ideas

  • introduce our charity and what they do
  • introduce and explain our ideas
  • explain how our idea is effective and why we are doing it
  • explain how it will benefit the charity
  • include our mindmaps, posters and trailers
  • summary of what we achieve and why, how
  • ask people if they have any questions
  • end pitch. photo

Monday 25/04/16-Wednesday 27/04/16

pitch perfect

This week, we created our pitch for our final project which is about what cause poverty in Britain and what charities are there to support them. we were put into small groups of four in order to present our ideas and feedback. Dave, my tutor said  to me that I need to use Harvard referencing when getting pictures and where I collected my research from. I learnt that presenting in a group is helpful because I can reflect my feedback and us this to improve ideas for my final piece. Whilst presenting I felt that I had confidence and I felt that my PowerPoint also emphasized  emotion.

  • unemployment/low paid work
  • benefits

Wednesday 20/04/16

 

Today I finished off the I have a question PowerPoint and found some more background information on poverty in Britain ready to pitch my idea next week and write an article.

Copy and paste work 

My creative response will show what causes poverty in Britain. The main argument is to show if poverty should be in Britain. I want the audience to understand how people are affected by poverty. my audience is is for families who are living in poverty and people who are not living in poverty. I will make this accessible by writing an article on what causes poverty in Britain and how we can help to fight poverty. The medium that I am going to use is writing an article and photography because I can take pictures of people who are living in poverty .

Synopsis

 

The question is what causes poverty in Britain. I am going to answer the question by interviewing people about their view on poverty in Britain. What they think cause poverty in Britain and should it be allowed in Britain.

Background information on what causes poverty in Britain

1: Child poverty facts

  • 9 out of 30 children in a classroom are living in poverty
  • 7 million children are living in poverty in 2013-14
  • The children in poverty today has increased by 0.5million since 2010
  • Children who are growing up in poverty are hungry, begin cold and not being with their friends. For example 60 per cent of families are in the bottom income quintile would like but can’t pay to take their families on holidays and days outs.

 

Research plan:

 

What do I need to research Method technique
What factors that are causing poverty in Britain Secondary I am going to look on the internet and in books about poverty in Britain
What are peoples view on poverty in Britain Primary I am going to do this by writing a questionnaire and interviewing people about their views
What has poverty been like in the past Secondary I am going to look on the internet to see how poverty have developed over the years
How to write an article Secondary By looking on the website how they have written articles and look at templates that are going to help me to structure my article
