Blog Title: Term 1 Novel Study


Term 1 Novel Study


This term I have been reading and studying the novel Fire in the sky.


I found this novel interesting because at the start it was a bit boring about him talking and eating and stuff but but at the middle it was getting interesting because his father went missing and I was dying to want to know what happened next!


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 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.
