Term 1 Novel Study
This term I have been reading and studying the novel Fire in the sky by Shirley Corlett
I found this novel quite boring at first but then when the eruption took place it was quite interesting and exciting. Overall I quite enjoyed this book.
During the novel I had to complete two major assessment tasks. The first is an Explain Map which shows the consequences of a major event in the book. The second was a Describe++ Map (Inference map) which shows I how I have connected prior knowledge and other experiences to what I have been reading to make an inference.
National Standard this covers.
- Year 7/8 Standard
- using several pieces of information to make inferences
using their prior knowledge, along with information in the text, to interpret abstract ideas, complex plots, and sophisticated themes
- I can use a range of strategies, such as inferring, to work out more complex words.
