Sam's fat four-eyed and useless

This term I have been reading and studying the novel …fat four-eyed and useless

I found this novel very interesting because you never really knew what was going to happen next.

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.
