Term 1 novel study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel Abandon Ship

I found this novel (interesting, ok etc)  because when ever I had to tidy away my stuff and I had been reading it always left me on a cliff hanger. It also had me deep into the book and it had me feeling like I was there. Now since I have read the book I know what my grandfather went through on the boat.

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.
