This term I have been reading and studying the novel See Ya Simon
I found this novel sad but interesting because it was very 'moving' to read and I have never read anything like this so i'm glad I chose this book to read.
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 9 / 10 and I would recommend it to others to read if they like emotional stories like this because its a very good but heart-breaking story because its about this boy named Simon who suffers from Muscular Dystrophy and doesn't have long to live.
