Dymocks Term 1
Using Clues To Make Meaning: This term, in English, students are focusing on several reading comprehension strategies in order to gain a deeper understanding when viewing texts and to be able to respond to themes and issues within texts, recognise a point of view and justify interpretations by referring to their own knowledge, values and experiences. They will have opportunities to collaborate with others and share their learning. Students will focus on making connections to texts, exploring how important it is to bring their own experiences and knowledge to form understandings. They will look at the strategies good readers use to infer, that is to use the clues in the text to “read between the lines”. They will justify, using evidence from the text what they believe the author’s purpose is and how this has an effect on the audience. Students will identify and practice asking literal, inferential and evaluative questions to help find significance and they will look at how they can capture key information from texts in order to summarise.
