Blog Title: Term 1 Novel Study
Term 1 Novel Study
This term I have been reading and studying the novel … Book is Abandon Ship The Writer is Debbie Atherton
I found this novel (interesting, ok etc) because…I like this book because the way how there were so many disasters and how it was so interesting .
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 (delete the ones that are not appropriate)
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.
