Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel See you Simon by David hill

I found this novel OK because it is very boring in some parts and really interesting in other parts, if someone asked me for a book recommendation I would not recommend See You Simon.

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 9/10 Standard
I can monitor my understanding as it develops during my reading, and adjust my strategies to address any comprehension problems Eg: If I don’t understand a passage I have read I can re-read it, read-on, use pictures or diagrams, or explore the meaning of some of the vocabulary.
I can use strategies to analyse ideas and information and to reflect critically on the meaning I am gaining from my reading. (Eg: I can think about the meaning of the information and ideas and how this fits with what I think)

My favorite book - term 1

this story is about a girl called Cat with a little sister named Maya that has a breathing disorder and so they needed to move from a big polluted city to a small clean town. Cat hated moving away from all her friends and never liked the sound of Bahia de la luna until she meet a boy and that's when everything changed.

You will have to read the story to find out more about this great book.

This book is a great read for car trips or people that like graphic novels
