WALT: Understand and explain the importance of reciprocal reading groups and share it with a wider audience via blogs.
TIB: Reciprocal reading helps us learn to guide group discussions using four comprehension strategies (summarising, questioning, clarifying, and predicting). This encourages us to think about our own thought process during reading and helps us to be actively involved and monitor our comprehension skills as we read.

Are the interconnectors useful in helping to understand the text deeper? Why/ why not?

What stuck with me?
The history and memories shared at the Australian War Memorial. With amazing dioramas and artefacts which tell the untold stories. Walking into the tomb of the unknown soldier resonated with me in particular.
Seeing the smiles on children’s faces as they play and learn about snow for the first time.
I look forward to seeing your entertaining and informative blog posts!
