Looking for Alibrandi


We can't stress enough how important it is that students keep up to date with the reading homework. If the class is expected to have read up to chapter 12, then the classwork the next lesson will assume that has been done. We can't work together in class and have quality discussion about characters, relationships and events if there are people in the class that haven't read the chapter and don't know what we're talking about.

Classwork so far.

Character maps were created in the first lesson and we'll be adding to those over the course of the term.
Comic strip summaries have started and are so far up to chapter 7. When our MacBooks arrive, we can utilise a great program called Comic Life to spruce these up a bit.

Grammar work starts Monday.
