Creates superhero outfit for Newt. O – his creativity has helped Newt to have a costume and transform him into super hero RE – This shows that he is a very creative person
  37. 37. 37 SAMPLE of POINT(1)… STATEMENT . TEXTUAL EVIDENCE. OPINION. RELATE Cecil is creative and innovative and has a lot of ideas. For example, he comes up with the idea of creating their own Halloween costumes. He also says that he can wrap himself in sheet of music and ‘come as a symphony!’ He then dressed as Mozart on Halloween. […… continue in the next slide]FIT/SMKAM/2016
  38. 38. 38 POINT 1 continues… …Not only that, he works with JJ to create a superhero outfit from old clothes for Newt. He successfully turns Newt’s oversized clothes and immediately connects it to ‘something Superman would wear’. His creativity has helped Newt to finally has a costume and transform him into a superhero. This shows that Cecil is indeed a creative person who has a lot of witty ideas to brighten up his friends’ life. STATEMENT . TEXTUAL EVIDENCE. OPINION. RELATE FIT/SMKAM/2016
  39. 39. 39 Point 2 Next, I find Cecil interesting as he is a determined person. He works hard to achieve his dream, which is to be a drummer. He practises whenever he has free time. He is also determined and persistent in convincing Captain Nobody to help him retrieve the discarded drum from the dumpster.In life, we should be determined and work hard like Cecil to achieve our dreams. This incident shows that Cecil is determined and he never gives up until his wish is fulfilled. FIT/SMKAM/2016 STATEMENT . TEXTUAL EVIDENCE. OPINION. RELATE
  40. 40. 40 Point 3 - supportive Cecil is a true friend to Newton (Captain Nobody) and JJ. He is always supportive to his friends through thick and thin. For instance, although Cecil is shorter and skinnier than Newton, he stands up for Newt when Newt is threatened by Ricky Ratner and his gang. Similarly, Cecil encourages and supports Newt in the audacious plan to climb Appleton water tower to persuade Reggie Ratner not to jump. In a way, Cecil helps Newt to overcome his fear of height. To me, he is Newt’s true friend as he always fights alongside Newt who is also known as Captain Nobody. This proves to us that Cecil is a real supportive friend.FIT/SMKAM/2016 STATEMENT .
