Hi everyone - I used this powerpoint presentation to support my Year 8 students during a novel study task. It was a reflective task, where the students were required to become the main character of the novel and write a letter to a friend. The aim was to follow a letter writing format, include main events from the novel, and more importantly, how the character felt about those events. The students were encouraged to include vocabulary from the novel, and if possible, quotes from the character, so the letter would sound authentic.
This scaffold could be used for a range of letter writing contexts - it is a dying art, but it is what our novel character would have done.
I am very proud of the student's results, and they are too.
