Term 2 Novel Study

Blog Title: Term 2 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel … Castaway .

I found this novel ok  because I did not think it was that great because it was boring until the end and then it got better .

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 (delete the ones that do not apply to you.)

  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • I can identify and evaluate the way writers’ use language and ideas to suit their purpose and I can use my growing wide range of academic and content-specific vocabulary to understand texts.
Overall I would give this novel a rating of  4 -10 ( insert your rating here) and would not  recommend it to others to read because I did not think that it was that interesting but it depends what they are into because I am not that person .

In ARTS this term we have been learning to: Make a role .
Select and use techniques and relevant technologies to develop drama practice.
Here is a link to our online modelling book.

  • During this unit of learning we:
  • Described the characteristics of silent performances.
  • Identified different techniques used in silent performances.
  • Used these techniques in a variety of different practice situations.
  • Worked in a small group to put together our own silent performance.

The most challenging part of this unit of learning was trying to make one up because it hard to think of one .

The two things that I enjoyed the most were:
1 running around .
2 learning how to make one .

The story that my group told silently was didn't do one .

Overall I think my group worked not so well because we did not do one .

Current Events Term 2, 2017

WALT: I can successfully research a current event.
Here is a link to our online modelling book for this unit of learning.

The National Standard that I have been aiming for during this unit of learning is:

Year7/8: I can use appropriate skills and technologies to find and use a range of texts for specific purposes.

Each week we have read a short text about a current event/ topic. We then formed questions based on what we had read.  After this we researched the answers to our questions and finally we gave our opinions on what we had found out.

Here is some evidence of my learning.
Describe Map One One of them.
Describe map Two Secon one

My Next Step is to continue to  apply the reading and  research skills that I have learned in a variety of other areas. To try make them more interesting because it will look better .
