Term 2 Novel Study
This term I have been reading and studying the novel: Silverstream.
I found this novel great because it the kind of genre I enjoy reading and I like a lot of action and adventure in books!
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 8/10 and I would / would not recommend it to others to read because It has a good back story and it creates a whole new world that could exist inside your mind; and I have a good idea of what the author is trying to tell me through this book.
