Term 1 Novel Study Blog

This term I have been reading and studying the novel Fat Four eyed and useless

I found this novel exciting because I really wanted to find out more in the story when I was a quarter of the way through.

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.

  • 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.
