Term 2 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel castaway

I found this novel interesting because I liked learning about the shipwreck and how they survived for so long and I also liked that is was a true story.

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 was a cool idea on how they turned a diary into a story because I have never seen a book like that before and it was also a good historical book.
