Sustainability & Conservation

Responding to texts

As part of out theme of Sustainability and Conservation, we (room 10) have been interacting with oral, visual and multimedia texts, This learning has included using reading strategies that involve making meaning of texts at both the literal and inferential level: what's right there in the text and what's not, requiring us to think some more and understand the context (the situation) in which the author is trying to communicate a message.

This has meant improving our own understanding that "Good Readers" connect to a text, activating their prior knowledge - feelings, thoughts, experiences, questions - in order to make meaning. We have been actively sharing these responses and responding to oral, visual and multimedia texts, sharing/discussing our different understandings and connections.
