This term I have been reading and studying the novel Silver Stream
I found this novel ok because It was interesting at the end but it took awhile to get into the book.
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 (specialized vocabulary of a particular field.)
Overall I would give this novel a rating of 4/10 and I would not recommend it to others to read because I don't feel like kids our age wouldn't like it because its too serious and has events in it that we don't know about.
