A Starter for 10

One of my loyal fans is in Year 10 (4th form). He has asked if I can help translate Pinko Teacher for him because….well you’ll see…he is baffled by the assignment. It is a Social Studies assignment.

Topic: Sustainability – Mining
Assessment Criteria:

Please help a loyal Whale Oil Beef Hooked fan and submit your answers in the comments. let’s see if we can educate a pinko teacher in the merits of mining and gain and excellence mark for the loyal Year 10 reader. Personally I give him full marks to thinking laterally about looking for an answer.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
