Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel Trash by Andy Mulligan

I found this novel Fascinating because I never knew that people lived on dumpsites it was amazing to see how happy they were, It is a bit sad though because they live their lifes on dumpsites and have to work their whole life especially those people who have no family or home literally they live on a pile of trash.

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
