This term I have been reading and studying the novel … abandon ship
I found this novel interesting because it was a true story and it was sad to hear her perspective and that when I know is has happened to people before.
During the novel I had to complete a thinking map which shows that I can classify how the author has shown the theme of the book.
National Standard this covers
- Year 9/10 Standard
- I can locate, evaluate, analyse and summarise information and ideas within texts and across a range of texts.
- I have a large vocabulary that is connected to my own knowledge about the world and includes: - academic e.g observe vs watch - subject-specific (specific words about a subject (e.g feline) - technical terms (specialised vocabulary of a particular field.)
Overall I would give this novel a rating of 9/10 and I would / would not recommend it to others to read because it was sad and because I just wanted to keep reading, it was hard to have to stop because Mrs S said to stop at a spot/page.
