Book Detectives P7S

Today we looked at our Book Detective Tasks for our homework.

Illuminator

  • you should record at least six feelings
  • you should record the character’s name
  • you should record the page number you got the evidence from
  • you should record any quotes to help support your answer
  • you should respond with how you feel about the situation (put yourself in the character’s shoes)

Example

22/8/16              Stormbreaker ch 1-2                     Illuminator

Alex – p10 – Upset –
‘ Funeral voices… that was how he would describe them later. The sort of voices people use when they come to tell you that someone close to you has died.’
Alex is upset because he has just realised the police are talking in funeral voices and therefore something bad has happened. If I heard funeral voices then I knew it was someone close to me. I would be upset but would want to find out more.

Mind Map

  • choose 4-5 main events from the chapters you have read
  • use branches from these events to add detail, evidence, page numbers to support your answer
  • turn your BD jotter landscape

Below is a picture of the Mind Map we created for chapters 1 and 2.
